Interviewing Masterclass: Free masterclass on interviewing from SDN and Medical College of Georgia
Discussion in '2018-2019 Allopathic School Specific Discussions' started by Lucca, Apr 21, 2018.
For people who already interviewed here, did you just send hand written thank you cards by mail? I can’t find my interviewer’s email and all they gave us was the mailing address for the admissions office
did you end up contacting them? I submitted mid/late august and also have not heard anything
Submitted late august, complete email today.
When should I start getting worried about not being completed? I submitted early August
submitted end of july. finally complete today
I don't think you should be worried at all (as long as you submitted everything, like LORs). The post above me submitted at the end of july and got the complete email the same day as me. So hang in there
wait are we supposed to send LORs directly? Do they not get them through AMCAS like every other school?
Yeah I meant as long as you submitted everything through AMCAS.
No I haven't. I am going to give it a bit more time, since I guessed they might be busy sending out the first batch of acceptances and completing applications probably aren't on the top of their to-do list now.
FWIW they don’t send out acceptances until feb
They are non-rolling admissions
Complete today, submitted late Aug!
Damn, submitted 8/24 and still nothing.
Submitted 8/14, received an email this morning for completed app.
Hey there! Sorry this is 2 weeks delayed, I kind of forgot about SDN for a while.
Favorite: I'm not from New York and I absolutely LOVE living here. While we're not exactly in the heart of Manhattan, it's not really a huge deal since you're gonna be too busy to go out on weekdays anyway. I have loved exploring the city during free time (of which there is plenty during M1-2 and 4). It's actually kind of nice being a bit removed from all the distracting fun stuff so you can really get stuff done during the week. Second favorite, in case you're already a New Yorker: We are affiliated with Montefiore which is a MASSIVE hospital system, plus a bunch of other hospitals in the area. This means that there's a huge amount of variety during clinical years. The patient population is really underserved and there are a lot of challenges that come along with that (this is a good thing for our education). I've heard that doctors who train at Einstein have a reputation for being able to thrive anywhere. Oh and a THIRD favorite thing- cheap on-campus housing!!
Least favorite: Sometimes things are really disorganized with the administration. They mean well though and are always taking feedback and working to improve.
Overall, I am very happy I decided to go to Einstein. I feel like I'm receiving a very solid education, and our match list is always fantastic. P/F during M1 and M2 was amazing, but of course this isn't unique to Einstein (but I seriously recommend that you prioritize this when deciding on a school). If you want to be in New York, I'd definitely recommend it!
Thanks for the reply!! I am not from New York but really love NYC. Really hoping to get an II there! Best of luck in your endeavors!!!
Finally complete! Submitted 8/15.
I mean every school has lots of cool programs and I'm still exploring the options here at Einstein but a few that stand out to me:
-on campus housing is ridiculously affordable (I pay a little over $400 a month for an apartment I share with 2 other students) and a 2 min walk from preclinical classes and the vast majority of students live there which really adds to the feeling of community here.
-the Bronx is a really diverse and underserved community and Einstein has SO many community outreach programs that do incredible work and really give back to the Bronx. The patient population you will be exposed to is probably one of the most diverse of any medical schools in the country.
-the faculty are incredibly accessible and willing to teach. I went to an event and heard a surgeon speak and was fascinated by her work, introduced myself to her and she gave me her phone number and had me in the OR shadowing her within a week.
-the school is very committed to student wellness and just opened up a mental health center devoted just to medical and phd students.
-there are lots of opportunities for early clinical exposure - as a first year I've already worked in the free clinic and will be starting rounds next week for my clinical skills course.
Again, I'm just a first year so I don't know everything but hope this helps a bit!
Submitted 08/22, just got "secondary complete" email today
Does anyone know when Einstein releases decisions? I just interviewed and was blown away, all the med students including the ones who weren’t even part of the tour were super welcoming and talked to us at length, the campus is green and beautiful, and the opportunities for global health are amazing - it’s easily my top choice.
Earliest decisions are released feb 1. I felt similarly
how rough are the stats? Lizzy M- 66.2. I have huge community service in NY though- specifically Brooklyn doing teaching . Is it worth applying?
Perhaps the next cycle if all other parts of your app are up to par. I would advise against applying this late in the cycle, anywhere.
R, MSTP transferred to MD. 75.5
LizzyM, Ivy grad. C'est la vie, I guess?
Complete email just now. Submitted 10/15/18
Am I missing something? I got my "secondary completed" email almost immediately. Subject line: Einstein: Secondary Application 2018-2019. Is the "complete email" everyone's talking about something different? If it is, then yeah I haven't gotten it as well (submitted early September). My bad if this has already been asked; can't seem to find an answer.
Nah it's another email with subject: "EINSTEIN - COMPLETED APPLICATION"
with the body starting with: "We are happy to inform you that your application to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is complete, and will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee."
Ouch, so it'll probably be January or something until I hear back. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if the school fills up for the next year by the time I'm complete! Oh well, serves me right for submitting so late. Thanks for the info!
I submitted my secondary in mid-August and I still haven't received the 'complete' email. Is anyone else in the same boat?
Submitted mine around the same time and got the email this week. Hang in there bud.
II just now! First East coast school to show me some love.
Congrats! Complete date?
Submitted secondary 8/26 and got complete email on 10/16, II just now.
II! Complete 8/8
What dates were available?
I only saw dates in November and December.
What did your completed email say? I received an email the day I submitted everything saying
"You have successfully completed the Secondary Application.
Thank you for your interest in Albert Einstein College of Medicine." IS this different?
Does anyone know the policy on submitting application updates? Thanks
There’s an email when you complete the secondary, and then another one when the application is complete by the admissions office/ when you’re under review
I don't know about pre-II but the admissions department sends out information after your interview about sending updates. They definitely encourage it if you have had an interview.
I submitted 8/8 but never got a complete email....should I call them to check on my application?
No. Just sit tight.
email them first
If you are really interested in the school, apply. Yeah it's late but it's better than never having tried!
I emailed them this morning and immediatly got a compelete email lol. Does this mean that my application was not reviewed all this time just because someone forgot to compelete it?
I really hope that is not the case but I also received a complete a few hours after I emailed them.
