Has anyone got in or know anyone that got in with a below 500 mcat score?
Can anyone who has had an interview share their interview experience. Mine is next week in NY. Also for people who currently attend Sackler (don't know if there are any on this thread) but can you share your experience so far. Are you happy you went? What are things you wish you knew before? How is the area of the school? etc. Thanks!
Accepted today! Interviewed early December.
As of now planning to attend unless I get off the waitlist at a U.S. MD school.
How did you find out? Also, do you mind sharing stats?
Fedex Express, delivered the note Saturday morning dated March 9th. LizzyM ~ 68 MCAT 512 GPA 3.6. Lots of clinical work experience, research for 2 years, and some volunteering although not a ton.
Does anyone know approximately how much it costs for tuition with all of the fees eg. Gym and health insurance included?
Also how much approximately should we budget for all other costs eg. Books, applications to write tests, living costs, rent etc
Haven’t gotten the official welcome package still, also not sure when I need to apply for a visa
When is it too late to apply?
May 9, 2018 is the last day to send in an application.
Welcome package: Accepted students will get the official welcome package via email from the Class of 2021 sometime in May or June.
Visas: Trust me, don't worry about it- the administrative staff will handle it in bulk for everybody at the beginning of the academic year after classes have started. Keep your acceptance letter handy in a carry-on when they check your passport at the airport.
Gym: On campus, called Elite Sports Center, I believe I paid ~$300 for 12 months. It's less than a dollar a day for a nice value imho- olympic sized pool + 2 indoor, tracks, *plenty* of tennis and basketball courts, some free classes (yoga!), and a pretty good weight + cardio room.
Tuition: Has been $40k/year for a while now.
Rent: Roughly between $500-$1200/month depending on the usual factors. Everything considered, I pay ~$800/month, live with 2 other students, 5 minutes from campus.
TL;DR: Welcome package will explain everything sometime in May/June. Hope I quelled some burning questions! Congrats and good luck
New match list for 2018 has been posted on the sackler website
Anyone else get the waitlist email?
Accepted!! Best wishes to you all
We just made a Facebook group for those accepted to the Class of 2022. Feel free to add yourself. It's called "TAU Sackler School of Medicine NYS/American Program Class of 2022 Accepted"
Just received my welcome packet by email. Feel free to PM me with questions, seems to cover the basics.
Does Sackler award scholarships to students?
congrats! do you mind sharing stats?
Thanks! LizzyM 68 currently in a research-based masters
Congrats!!! When did you interview? (and did you hear via email or mail?)
Thanks! I interviewed March 5th and received a letter in the mail.
Do you know when your application was reviewed? (like in the March or April committee meeting)
I was told that I was being reviewed at the April 12th committee meeting before receiving my acceptance.
Does anyone know how they send out acceptances? Like do they send all the acceptances for a given month (admissions meeting) at once?
Acceptance letters are sent out via Fedex Express (or similar), and welcome packet via email
Sorry! What I meant is are all the acceptances from a given admissions committee meeting sent out at once? Like if someone has already gotten an acceptance from the April meeting, does that mean that they're not sending out more from that meeting. Also when do they generally let you know if you're on the waitlist/rejected.
