    Hello! I am a current first-year undergrad student. The maximum credit hours allowed at my institution is 18. However, seeing as how my GPA is high, and I plan on double majoring, my advisor recommended that I consider petitioning to take 19 credits so that I am able to take more classes that...

    UCSF vs Mount Sinai

Also, being close to Central Park is a plus. Born n raised in NY, so family, friends, and SO are here Will be ~60K in...

    Mount Sinai vs. NYU

    Fortunate enough to have acceptances to two great NY medical schools. Costs of attendance are approximately the same with NYU being slightly more expensive due to more expensive housing--I'm not really using cost as a decision-making factor. I already decided against Vanderbilt and UVA largely...

    Mount Sinai and two-body problem: options (post-bacc, lab tech, Masters) for gf

    Hi all, I'm leaning towards Mount Sinai's MSTP program. Problem is, my girlfriend (wants to get her PhD in Microbio) only applied to one NYC school (Columbia) and got rejected. She's most likely getting into a Baltimore school, so long-distance is our back-up plan. We're fretting about our...

    Secondary application "upload photo" problem at Mount Sinai Medical (NY)

    The rest of the secondary application is working fine for me. However, when I try to upload my photo, and then save it, it says that the page is complete, but it also says "no file chosen". Anybody else having this issue? Thanks

    Icahn MPH 2016

    Wanted some feedback on Icahn's mph program at Mount Sinai. Is this program mainly tailored for medical students? Im not sure whether they would be as welcoming for people just out of undergrad.

    Mount Sinai vs. Duke

    I was wondering if people with direct experience with these schools could chime in on whether it would be worth it to attend Duke over Mount Sinai, despite Duke being ~130k dollars higher in cost for me. I have reasons as to why I am pretty set on Mount Sinai such as: -its significantly cheaper...

    Mayo (Full Tuition) vs. Sinai (60% tuition)

    The difference will come to $54,000 over the 4 years. Mayo is a great place. I completely understand it's educational value, opportunities and how I could perceivably do better there academically. Of course the hospital is on another level and completely outshines Sinai. However, I absolutely...
