-Higher ranking/prestige... Ranked #29
-3 to 4 hours away from family
-Cost of Attendance would be $85k a year... AKA $340,000 over 4 years not including compounding interest :(

So I am currently on a few waitlists, and first tier waitlist at Hofstra (my top choice school but I need to make a decision between these two schools by the 30th. I am currently leaning toward Seton Hall atm but don't want to regret my decision if I don't get off the waitlist anywhere.
Already confirmed, have a lease
DC is probably nicer, haven't spent much time in Brooklyn
Have car available
Like previous living conditions in grad school
The students and other classes are really cohesive
Long travel time home, (NY)
Not as ‘competitive...
Please read carefully. Preference is for long term roommate however can be somewhat flexible.
Room for rent available in a 2 bedroom apartment at $1350 per month for long term. If short term (less than 1 year) price it will be $1600. If ultra-short term 3 months or less it will be $1900...
Summary: NY resident whose main goals are to 1) enjoy medical school and 2) put myself in position to match into a competitive residency if I choose to go that way (ortho or ENT? but still totally undecided). My family lives on LI right near Hof and my girlfriend will be in Manhattan for the...
If anyone has any insight or advice on this decision I would really appreciate it.
I'm an out of state for both schools but can become in state after one year, so tuition differences are really a major factor. Additionally, when looking at apartments it seems that cost of living while...
Not normally a poster but I'm having a bit of trouble deciding between Rutgers NJMS and SUNY Downstate (these are the two I've narrowed down to as of late). As one could imagine, since they're both state schools comparisons between these two aren't common - any insight would be...
Hey guys.. How is everyone doing? Currently, I'm taking Orgo 1 and I'm doing so poorly, I might end up with a C+ at maximum for the class. I was wondering if SUNY Downstate would still accept me? Particularly their EME Program. I
I was just taken off the waitlist at Einstein and am conflicted. 28 y/o M non-trad moving from SF to NYC. Background in software sales and real estate before making the switch.
Any and all input would be appreciated!
-- Live off campus in a fun part of New York = better...
I have a week to decide between these schools and have no idea what to do. I'm IS at both and cost will more or less be the same. Both are close to home, but Stony Brook is more convenient in terms of travel time as I could easily drive home as opposed to having a 1.5 hr MTA commute. Both have...
I've been fortunate enough to be accepted at both Stony Brook and Downstate. I've checked out previous threads, but a lot of them seem outdated, especially given the recent curriculum changes at each of these schools. I was wondering if anybody could help me make a decision.
University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
Accepted to the MD-MPH program. Strong interest/background in public health—I don’t see the MPH as an “essential” to my medical career, but I am drawn to this dual degree program specifically because the MD/MPH components are so well...
Hey everyone, I've received an email for interview with Downstate in 2 days. Can anyone give me insight on the questions they may ask me for the interview as well as what I may need to write an essay on? Thanks.
Thanks for clicking on this thread! I was recently accepted off the waitlist at both Rochester and Hofstra and need to make me decision soon. Previously committed to Downstate before I got these two acceptances. I'm interested in fielding any and all opinions you fellow SDNers...
Im asking just based on pure curiosity. My decision to attend a school would never come down to a probably-biased ranking but i am just interested in knowing. Both Downstate and Penn state are unranked, meaning they did not give their info to be ranked. I was just wondering if anyone...
I was waitlisted to both SUNY Downstate and Kean University and I'm wondering if anyone is in the same position as me. Does anyone know of people who got off the waitlist? If so, around when were they notified.
Good luck to all, and thank you!
Howdy lady and gents
I have not been on this forum in a few weeks (finally had some stuff to contribute recently). I am a Cali resident but I have been invited to interviews in 3 SUNY Schools (Upstate, Stony Brook, Downstate). I want to attend at least 2 in 1 trip but let's see how scheduling...
Anyone hear anything from Downstate? It's been a few months and I'm getting nervous as I have yet to hear back from them.
If you applied this year or have been accepted in years past, would be kind enough to post your stats so I can see how I compare that would be awesome!
