    Interview is 8/19 or 8/21.

    Good luck.:thumbup:

    Good luck to you all. Roger, the director of admissions is great, and the interview day should be pretty laid back and straight forward.

    I'll be starting there at Touro-NV this year. Actually only 5 more days left until the first day. Crap! So Soon!

    Let me know if you have any specific questions the interview.

    Wow, time certainly does fly. Congrats to those who have been invited for an interview. If it's your first interview, don't sweat it because it's probably the easiest you'll encounter during the interview season. Roger, as you might already know, is a great guy and will make all of you feel very comfortable on your big day.

    I also received an interview to touro - it'll be my first one! I'm definitely excited about it. I've been waiting so long for this moment, and it's finally here. I can't believe it'll be next week - 8/21! I've been reading in the databases for questions they ask in the interview, but does anyone have any advice about it? Thanks!

    Does anyone know what touro-nv residencey list looked like? It was opened in 2004, so this is the first year that one should be available. . . I've seen the list for Touro ca, but I'm sure the satelite schools will have a few differences.

    Thanks!

    Hi, sounds like there's a lot of people getting interviews from tucom nevada. I also got one today. What's the percent of interviewees that get accepted? I'd also like to know some of the interview questions.

    60% Accepted. 30% Waitlisted. 10% Rejected.

    Check out the database link at the top of the forum page to get a general idea as to what questions they may or may not ask you and good luck.:thumbup:

    Hey guys, I'm just planning for the interview day. Where's a good hotel or place to stay at which is close to TUCOM? Is there a shuttle or should I just rent a car? thanks

    .


    fiesta henderson is really cheap and about 5 mins about from the school. there's no shuttle, but i dont think you need to rent a car bc everything is pretty close and cabs will cost less than renting a car (unless you are staying for more than one night). i was there last week and everything (ie transportation, staying, getting there on time) went pretty smoothly. pm me if you want details.
    good luck on the interview!!!

    and good luck to everyone who interviewed last week. tomorrow's the big day!:scared:

    The adcom met on the 28th to discuss applicants from interviews that were on the 19th and 21st. So it is pretty quick.

    Ah, it seems I will be going for the 7th date. Have fun on the 16th though!

    I'm also really interested in staying with a student. Has anyone set this up already? I hope it is as easy as it looks.

    It's not a group interview. You will be alone with 2 interviewers in a room.

    You're going to introduce yourselves to the group of interviewees for that day, but that's pretty much it. It's not like the group interview like they have in Touro-CA.
