    URochester versus Downstate

    I would appreciate any feedback for these two schools! Rochester has a great reputation, really nice facilities, and a very supportive/inspiring community. Cons include weather/location and lack of recorded lectures, though they do provide detailed syllabi. Being from NYC, I'm also attracted to...

    Quality of education and experience from SUNY Downstate & Touro College

    Hey Everyone! I’m currently in the interviewing process of getting into PT school. I have applied to Suny Downstate and Touro College. I have heard mix reviews for both places. Now that it is 2018, I’m just wondering if any of the two schools have made better changes in their curriculum...

    SUNY Downstate Internal Medicine (Program update from an insider!)

    Hi all. So I saw the post from 2007 when searching my program on Google that said SAY NO TO SUNY DOWNSTATE. I was not here in 2007, but I can speak for 2017. I am coming from a US medical school, so I was not desperate for a residency program. The thing that stuck out most to me on interview day...

    Doing pretty bad in orgo 1

    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

    NYU vs SUNY Downstate

    I've been accepted by Downstate and waitlisted by NYU. The problem I'm having is deciding which school is the best fit for me. Both have dual MD/MPH degrees which matters more to me than lab based and clinical research They both prepare their students really well when it comes to their...

    Reapplying to schools that: 1) I was waitlisted at/ withdrew from, and 2) I declined interviews to?

    Hi! I applied last cycle and received a few interview offers at a very wide range of schools: Duke, UCSF, GW, SUNY Downstate, NYMC. My SUNY and NYMC interview invites came pretty late in the game. I was also being excessively picky, so I politely turned down both these interviews. I realize...

    OHSU vs. SUNY Downstate

    Hi all - I would love to hear everyone's input on OHSU vs SUNY Downstate. I know the two schools are very different, but I am drawn to SUNY to be close to family and save $20K a year after I become a NY resident. OHSU, on the other hand, seems to be better regarded in terms of ranking and the...
