    Are you still undecided on NYITCOM or are you definitely attending?

    I am definitely attending NYITCOM unless I hear back from an MD school.

    Hey guys!! I am applying in June. Maybe, I should not be in this thread, but this is my top choice (in old Westbury)!! And, seeing all these acceptances is very enlightening! My stats: 4.0 cGPA/sGPA, tutored biology at my university for 3 semesters. Volunteered at 2 hospitals/Shadowed a doctor -- plan on shadowing 2 more. LOR from science professors as well, plan on asking for a LOR from a doctor soon. I plan on also applying early. I am from NY as well. Pakistani (don't know if this matters??). I plan on also getting a job as a patient care tech! HOWEVER, my MCAT is coming up soon and I am freaking out cause I keep scoring decent in the sciences and CARS has stagnated around 121-123!!! My other sections C/P 126~128, B/B: 128~130, P/S: 130~132. But that low CARS section has me in crippling anxiety which caused me to spend hours stalking this thread and now I grew the courage to ask if I have some chance in the upcoming cycle (2020!)

    Sounds like you have a very good, well rounded application. CARS was also my worst section. When I took it I though I killed it but it turned out to be my worst (125) just like my practice tests. I did go down a few points from last practice tests. Don’t worry too much about it. You should focus on doing as best you can and do as many practice problems as you can. That’s my take. And yes make sure to get at least one good LOR from a doctor, preferably a DO. Mine was from an MD but it didn’t matter.

    CARS was my worst section as well but somehow on test day I did very well. I'm not sure if I really just got lucky or if I actually knew what I was doing in CARS the whole time but I think it was mostly luck for me. My advice would be just to keep really focusing on CARS and doing at least 4-5 passages a day up until your exam to really get your mind in the right state. When it comes to the test just relax, try not to stress during the CARS section, and just get through it as best as you can. You can do it! You're almost there!

    I received an email about the background check so I went ahead and completed that. However, I haven't submitted my immunizations.

    I submitted my immunizations shortly after the background information. It probably would have taken longer if I hadn’t already had them on hand from my job.

    I applied and got waitlisted, so when you visit a session and if you decide it's not for you, I'll gladly take your spot ;)

    They usually send decisions out at the end of the work day, so hold off the email checking till 5pm or so, for sanity's sake.

    Congratulations to everyone who's been accepted! I was just wondering if any of you guys know when they stop sending IIs? I just want to know if I should stop hoping for an II.

    Hello! I have a few questions about NYITCOM that I'm hoping you'd be willing to answer:
    -How often do you go to lectures? I believe I've read somewhere that lectures aren't mandatory, but is it possible to do well without going to lectures at all (just watching the recorded ones online)?

    -How are the exams at NYITCOM? Do they prepare students well for the COMLEX and USMLE?

    -During the tour on my interview day (it was raining!), we got to see two buildings for the school. Do you feel like there is sufficient amount of space on campus to study?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. I don't go to lecture at all. It's totally possible to do well, in fact you may do better not going (as has been my case). All the lectures are recorded and uploaded immediately after they finish, so if you wish to watch them at 2x you can. I mostly study using outside resources and double-check that I'm on track with the school's material. I've yet to fail an exam, so I do well enough without going.

    2. The exams are... fine. The professors write the questions and they're of variable quality. Some of the faculty write for COMLEX/USMLE I believe, and usually you can tell when it's one of their questions. Some of them test of useless minutiae, and you're going to get that at every school that writes its own questions. For the most part the exams are passable even if you only study using board-prep materials (although you'll have to refer to lecture for things like clinical skills and OMM). The exams themselves don't really prep you well for COMLEX/USMLE in my opinion, you'll want to spend a good amount of time prepping for them with outside resources/QBanks.

    3. For the most part yes. Space can be at a premium during exam times for us or the other professional programs (Nursing, P.A., P.T., etc) but if you want to study on campus you can find a space, whether in the library or in silent study. We also have access to the undergrad library, so you can study there if you like. It's a commuter school, so the undergrad student population doesn't tend to be very high on campus.

    So I got the acceptance email last week, and the physical letter today. The physical letter says to sign the Delta Leadership scholarship acceptance form by next week, but the email says I don’t have to submit the deposit and the school
    Acceptance form by the 31st. What happens if I sign all of the forms but then decide to go to another school I am waiting on? Do I just lose the deposit money? I just know there are strict rules about letting other schools know about being accepted to other schools.

    This does mean that you are competing for a seat in JB. I have yet to hear of a student interviewing at one campus and being accepted to another. This is my interpretation of the events, anyway.

    The deposit reserves your seat and is non-refundable at most schools. There is always a debate on the ethics of requiring a payment and whether or not it is fair to say to students “even if you lose the money, you are reserving a guarantee of a seat in medical school while waiting for maybe another option to open up.” I think the feeling comfort is worth it, but that is my opinion. I understand we all have different financial situations.

    Just be mindful of AACOMAS rules regarding timelines and talk with the school if anything comes up. They will be as flexible as is reasonable, I would imagine. You would be surprised how willing the schools are to help you interpret AACOMAS guidelines on acceptances and whatnot if you ask. I do not recommend missing scholarship money in the event that you do come to JB, though. Take the free money!
