I know the White Coat Ceremony is July 23rd in Middletown, and the website says "Orientation is 7/23-7/27".. can a current Touro student speak as to what goes on during Orientation week? Are we given our financial aid package to go out and buy supplies? Are we given our textbook list? Supply list? Access to online lectures? It seems like an awful long time just for orientation, what goes into it?
I am on the waiting list for this school but just found out I got dismissed from my SMP due to a grade violation. Any advice on how to handle this?
I PM'd you but I needed a 70 to pass a class and I got a 67.5. All my other grades are good. This program is linked to a medical school so we were basically taking similar classes to the first year of medical school.Harlem 1st year
Care to expand? Grade violation can mean many things.
PM me if you don't want it to be open to the public.

I have been on the waitlist since 1/7/18 and I interviewed at 12/13/17. Would it be a good idea to call the admissions office and ask my waitlist status? Such as what spot I am at?
Still waiting for Middletown ... what’s everyone’s feelings about the waitlist movement?
Does the letter grading breed heavy competition among students? (rather than p/f)
Also -- does anyone know how much time is allocated for studying for COMLEX / Step 1 at Touro Harlem?
More time / less than most schools?
When is the first day of classes and white coat ceremony?! Anyone know?!?!
Why is this? I was superrr looking forward to the white coat ceremony which I thought was at orientation? I'm at Harlem campus can anybody confirm this is the case? I don't want to have family come out if there's no ceremony.
True better safe than sorry I just hate not knowing after checking SDN and emails every day for the past month, but what can you do!Well, I think the explanation makes sense. It doesn’t help anyone to learn they are near the top only to have the list re-evaluated and get pushed to the bottom...
Approx when do we get registered for the classes? Roughly how long before the start date do we get the list of things required in addition to the syllabus?
Thank youEnjoy yourself. All will be explained in orientation. Just make sure all your documents are in to the registar office. DO NOT buy any books there will be plenty of chance for that later and the class passes around free PDF copies, so don't waste your money.
Orientation week is where all will be explained and you'll see the class schedule etc.
The time from when I was accepted till when I started was literarily the best time of my life.
