You will be notified as the time arrives. Typically it is in the first two weeks of July, around July 7th, I believe. I’ve lived here two years, I think you’ll largely like it.Does anyone know what day we can move into on campus housing at Jonesboro (The Circle)?
To be honest I've never checked out the small gym in Serota (I think they might actually be getting rid of it next year during the renovation of ICC as they need the space). Most people I know have a gym membership though.@kazill or any current student at OW, do you have any info on the small gym that's located in Serota? Hours, type of equipment, is there enough equipment or does it get too busy. I could only find information about the larger general fitness center. It isn't open on weekends and I want to figure out if I want get a gym membership.
So I don't have to worry about my apartment rent if I get my funds within 2 weeks of the start of the semester, right?Apply and try your hand. People get accepted under a 3.6, that’s why that’s the average. We have Spanish majors, music majors, and more down here.
That depends on where you’re staying. If you are on campus (i.e. the Circle), then ASU will work with you. If you are off campus, then the owner has no official obligation to delay rent requirements to accommodate disbursement.So I don't have to worry about my apartment rent if I get my funds within 2 weeks of the start of the semester, right?
I understand, thank you for your response!That depends on where you’re staying. If you are on campus (i.e. the Circle), then ASU will work with you. If you are off campus, then the owner has no official obligation to delay rent requirements to accommodate disbursement.
I think many places down here have been flexible, but again, it is not required of them. Be open and up front about your situation if you are renting off campus and be understanding if they are not comfortable with that. There are unfortunate realities to real-estate and risk-burdens.
If you can at least offer something up front people are more willing to work with you, even if it is not the full amount. Just know that nothing is guaranteed.
As long as you have been awarded enough loans to pay the Cost of attendance you don't have to do anything else until August. At least thats what I was told when I called.Does anyone know how paying tuition works with loans? I know tuition is due today, but loans aren't disbursed until August
Congratulations!!!Accepted off waitlist today!! All you fellow waitlisters, this is for you to know that waitlist season is here! Keep your eyes peeled and hope alive, they're coming for you next!!
You don’t. The curriculum is the same for every student in your class and you will all follow that same schedule throughout your didactic years. The only time variance will come into play is on which day/time slot you have a given lab (OMM on Wednesday or Thursday, first or second time slot), or when you enter third year rotations.
And these time variances are assigned? Or is it possible to choose your own lab slot?The only time variance will come into play is on which day/time slot you have a given lab (OMM on Wednesday or Thursday, first or second time slot), or when you enter third year rotations.
For an official answer, you can Google the NYITCOM Student Handbook and see the dress code as it applies to each area (lecture, OMM, DPR, ICC, etc). There is no ambiguity if you reference that.I know this has been mentioned before but what is the dress code? Specifically at NYITCOM-AR if it's different. A few students on here mentioned conflicting information.
thanks for the feedback, seems pretty lenient.For an official answer, you can Google the NYITCOM Student Handbook and see the dress code as it applies to each area (lecture, OMM, DPR, ICC, etc). There is no ambiguity if you reference that.
They seem relatively lax on the policy but that is how it is stated and how it will be presented at orientation. As a student, I would advise/request being courteous to your fellow classmates for labs that require you to work with each other. By that I mean do not wear jeans to OMM or DPR. It is not allowed per the policy and just because you can get away with wearing it because you will not be sent away does not mean you aren’t making it more difficult on your partner to get work done. I have had these partners. They suck to work with when that happens. Don’t be that guy.
That was a lot of negatives in one sentence up there, wow.
ICC is listed as professional attire with white coat. That means shirt and tie for guys, and the equivalent for gals. Again, there is a tendency to be lenient, but God forbid they actually adhere to the policy at some point it would make more sense to just wear the tie for the 1 hour and take it off after. Don’t be the guy who gets sent home because he didn’t adhere to dress code, get a 0 for the encounter, and has to remediate ICC because of it.
It has not happened yet to my knowledge, but with the policy as written it CAN, so roll your dice if you choose.
I got an email without any call. Got a letter in the mail a week later.Accepted today at Jonesboro. I never received a call - just an acceptance letter that was dated April 17th and postmarked April 18th. I am so excited!
But I feel a little questionable about never receiving a call - is this even real? Did this happen to anyone else?
is this for the arkansas students or old westbury students? i never received anything of this nature in the mail lolCongrats everyone! Don’t buy stethoscopes! You’ll get one at orientation for free as a gift from the alumni (just got the letter in the mail confirming this).
Check your attachments; the form should be in your email.Hey, for anyone who has been accepted; what is this “email the acceptance form” stuff? Like I can do the deposit, but can’t find this acceptance form to email.
It's on the admitted students page under step 1.Yeah that’s the problem; I didn’t get the original email for some reason. I guess I’ll need to call again Monday and ask.
WOW, thank you so much for the insight. it is helpful to hear this other side of the story. Most med schools advertise the glamour and leave out real stuff like this. So thank you.Important information for you guys, so you can plan early, study for boards early, and to work hard, because you guys won’t have an AOA match for residency. NYCOM is a great school, but some things are out of its control, such as residency.
In four years when you're applying for residency for the Match, apply broadly, have back-up specialities, interview everywhere, and rank every interview; that’s the best you can do to secure a residency spot. So much has changed since >5 years ago.
An example (which echos other schools that had lower match rates this year): for 2019 for the first time in many years, NYCOM did not have a 99-100% match or placement rate. Many students didn’t match, and thus couldn’t even be placed into transitional year or other open available spots (lack of safety AOA TRI or FM spots available, as they disappeared b/c of the ACGME merger). The school won’t even publish an official match/placement rate because it is low. Compare that to previous years on the NYCOM press releases where there were 100% matches, but this year? Unfortunately no, because of the merger, many AOA DO spots closed or became MD spots, competition has increased from new graduating DOs and MDs, etc.
Sure the match list looks good this year, but it’s not the entire graduating class. NYCOM has also lost some important hospital affiliations for third year clinic and regional rotations:
Lutheran which became NYU, Maimonides, some NJ and LIJ hospitals, South Nassau which now will take Stony Brook students because Stony Brook lost NYU Winthrop since NYU Winthrop will have their own MD school... all because either: a) they used to sponsor some great AOA residencies, which now don’t exist, b) and/or also those hospitals have now taken more MD students for rotations (such as the new agreement with Maimonides and SUNY), c) or now have their own MD schools (LIJ, Seton in NJ, NYU Lutheran Brooklyn, Barnabas Bronx with CUNY med, etc).
So my advice? Study hard, ace the boards, and don’t be picky or choosy when you apply for residencies, because the competition from new DO and MD schools (unfortunately) is only increasing, and your goal is to have a job and match. Good luck!
Note: it isn’t just NYCOM that experienced this problem this year. Hopefully by the time you guys are fourth years, the school will be very transparent with ya’ll regarding Match statistics and an emphasis on match success.
