    As I said earlier, personally I was “under review” (no hold) from August to March. I can’t be sure what the exact status of your app is but I anticipate it just means you’ve not been reviewed or no decision has been made.

    Does NYMC accept updates? I dug though the website a while and I could not find anything....

    Has anyone who has sent a post-interview update to NYMC received a confirmation email of some form? I sent one in a week ago but I didn't hear back, and I'm considering whether or not to call the school to ask if they received it.

    I sent one last week and still haven't heard anything either


    Edit: I noticed you said post-interview update. I sent mine post-II but pre-interview, if that matters.

    Thank you for the response! I just wanted to let you/everyone else know that I called admissions to make sure they received it, and they had gotten it the day after I emailed it in, so I guess they just don't send out confirmation emails.

    II today! Complete 8/24, not put on hold or at least didn't receive notification of it. Sent in an update last Thursday (email), not sure if that made a difference for the II. One date in December open, a lot in January, and one in February on the interview scheduler. This is going to be my first MMI interview, pretty nervous about it...

    How bad is a on-hold notification at this point. I got mine on 9/26 and I am wondering if this should be considered neutral or basically a rejection.

    Well, they thoroughly evaluated your application and decided not to give you an II. However, NYMC does pull a lot of people from the hold pool later in the cycle. So that means you're not their first choice but you still have a chance.

    For those of us who interviewed early, when do you think we'll hear back? My group was told "around Thanksgiving" but I think responses came out around now last year.

    I did not get any hold notifications or anything similar. It was straight silence until I got the email.

    So I noticed on the MSAR it says the earliest acceptances will go out on 11/27/2017. I expect this will be the for all the early interviewees (probably up until October/ early November dates). And looking at the previous years' threads, it looks like acceptances go out in waves, with lots of people getting accepted on the same day towards the end of the month (this exact day varies from year to year). So I predict anyone who has interviewed before November will get a decision within the next week or two, and those who interviewed from November to early December should hear back a few days before Christmas this year.

    Anyone take an uber or taxi from La Guardia to the city? How much should i be expecting to pay for transportation (roundtrips from LGA to manhattan and grand central train to valhalla)?

    I will recommend taking the bus to 125th and then taking the train - $2.75 vs who knows how much. It might take a while but it would be so much cheaper than taking the uber. From GCT metro north is going to be about 9-12 to Whiteplains depending on which route you take and whether is peak or off-peak time.

    Total I will budget for: GCT to NYMC= $11 each way = 22 round trip
    From/To the airport will depend if you want to take the MTA or if you want to take a Cab - can range from $5.50 round-trip to Uber airport prices.

    I'd probably just send out "angry" reacts when people with my stats get II's while I don't have one..

    Also, LM 66, complete 10/04, and a CT resident! Hoping to get in here to stay close to home.

    To GC: expect like $25-40+ depending on traffic

    I second the above about 125th - much more direct route

    There is a pretty great bus that goes into the city that costs the same as a subway ride. Depends on how much time you have to spare!
