    In the sky.
    It sounds like this school is really focusing on taking in students from the surrounding area for their first class.

    I am sure they will be offering interviews to out of region and state students too. Jersey schools, like most other give preference to Jersey students. South Jersey is just a historically undeserved area by the medical community and I think they want to see students who would have the potential to stay in the area go there.

    AMCAS Verified since 7/15 and still no secondary...however I did manage to get those emails saying the payment system was fixed now and that you should be able to pay now....did everyone get this email?

    looks like this school isn't going to show me any love...

    Just found this thread. Hello all!
    Secondary Completed on Aug. 4th
    Interview Invite on Aug. 8th
    28R (12PS,6VR,10BS)...waiting for scores on retake
    3.64 cGPA 3.8sGPA
    from North Jersey

    I went to the open house last month and the presentation of the school was really great. The Dean said that the charter class will be 50 students. The medical school building will hopefully be done by Summer 2012. Overall, the program looks very promising and I have it as my first choice. I'll be interviewing on Sept. 30th. Shoot me a message if you are interviewing then as well.

    Good luck everyone!

    I live in NC, 31 and 33, 3.56, and I received a rejection today...

    "You have absolutely no chance of ever becoming a doctor. We are dumber for having read your essays. We award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul."

    I may have been reading between the lines though. How do y'all feel about rejection messages? I feel like I got kicked in the stomach and groin and cried a teeny bit. This means a lot to me, ya know what I'm sayin'? Anyone feel the same with these messages? Granted, I am in NC so my chances were pretty low, I suppose...justify, justify, strength returning...

    I submitted my secondary on 8/8 and got the interview invite today 8/24.

    I'm OOS (Rhode Island resident), Non-trad (31 yo currently), and have a decent amount of volunteer experience with the underserved. I was intrigued by the school because that seems like what they're really going for.

    30Q (10PS-10VR-10BS) on second take.

    I'm interviewing on 11-11-11. I figured it was good luck.
     
  41. I got the rejection letter, but I retook my mcat last week (as indicated on AMCAS). I always thought that they had to wait for the scores to come in to make any judgment on a candidate. Does anyone know if this is true or false?
    I have a 3.9 cGPA, 3.85 sGPA, with 3 years of research, and 4 years as an EMT. My mcat sucked and was definitely the weakest part of my application. So I am hoping that the second scores will be better and help me get in places, if they even look at them........

    What was your MCAT? Did they know your had another MCAT coming? Also, any community service? I think they are looking for dedication in this area, not so much research, because of the area the school is in.

    If you had written on AMCAS that you have a score coming in and they didn't wait for it (especially if MCAT was your weakness) I would request an appeal of their decision. My first move would be to call the admissions office and explain your situation and ask if they have a policy for appeals
     
  44. They should know that I took the second test from AMCAS. I do have a decent amount of community service as a volunteer EMT for the last 4 years and volunteer work as a Special Olympics coordinator. I sent an email, but I think I will call as well. I'll let you know how it goes:xf:

    Just for the sake of accuracy the character limit is actually 600.
