wohoo welcome to the squad:D

If you are definitely attending NYITCOM OW, then we will be classmates!!!
I'm looking forward to it! But first, I need to get this housing situation squared away. They don't make it very easy...

For those of you accepted off the waitlist, what steps did you take?
I called and emailed admissions with basically any significant updates, and made sure to emphasize how much I want to attend each time. Good luck!

Got a waitlist update email from them asking me 1) if I want to stay on the WL there’s no action needed and 2) if I want to withdraw my position I should do so by 06/19/2019

I just got that email too, for the Jonesboro campus. Does anyone know if this is actually a good sign? Or is this second WL email standard?

What are the differences in the two options for the equipment kits? One is priced a lot higher than the other?

I'm commuting from Brooklyn, so I just wanted to get a general understanding of the class schedule your first-year along with potentially how many times a week will I have to commute to campus. What I know so far is that lectures are in the morning from Monday through Thursday and labs/workshops are in the afternoon. Exams are scheduled to be on Friday. So am I correct to assume that I could potentially have to drive to campus five times a week, because of exams, labs, and workshops, which all have mandatory attendance. Also is there any student at NYITCOM that I can PM my questions directly? Thanks!

Yes, first semester you will need to be on campus 4-5 days a week. I posted about the schedule in a different thread (NYITCOM Class of 2023- Old Westbury)

Feel free to PM me or any of the other current students, if you search through the thread you can find us

The lectures aren't mandatory so you won't have to come in the mornings (you can just watch the recordings), and then starting at 1 you'll have labs 4-5 times a week so you'll have to come in then but traffic shouldnt be too bad at that time. And then you can study on campus and leave campus after rush hour (8-9ish or afterwards if you want).

I travel to Long Island on occasion from Brooklyn. Live near Bay Ridge and it can take 2 hours around 8 am and 3 pm-6pm. The travel time is quite painful as somehow something is always wrong on the belt or LI express.
Smh at the belt. The belt has to be the most trafficked road on the East Coast.

Yeah, I'm pretty curious about the shopping list myself. I wonder if just getting the cheapest reasonably-reviewed stuff on Amazon would suffice. Do you mind lending your opinion, @kazill ?

Get a good stethoscope, everything else get the cheapest possible. You only use these things in a singular lab and can just borrow off of someone who splurged for the good stuff, for ICC they provide you with all the tools you need.
