Congrats! You're going to rock it.
Lol there goes my chance at an II.
Thank you so much!! It's my first II and I'm so relieved haha but don't lose hope! I could be wrong about this, but it seems that as the cycle goes on and more people receive decisions, more people decline their II from NYMC (and other schools as well). A spot could certainly open up for you :')
Were you complete in October? I’m asking because I submitted in August as well but LOR and secondary wasn’t marked received until October.
Yep! That will be perfectly fine
I submitted in August and they marked me complete in September, but I have not heard a peep from them, not even a hold :/
Did you send any updates and were you on hold first?
Yup, I was marked complete on the portal on 10/8 even though everything was complete before hand (including CASPER)
I didn't send any updates. I didn't know NYMC accepted pre-II updates to be honest. I also was not put on hold
Thank you for your response.
RIP. I was marked complete 10/9. -sigh-
Apprently they do have pre II rejections. So idk how to take that
Can I ask if your MCAT score was below 510? I was complete in September and it looks like they have passed me over. I have a good GPA but my MCAT score is on the lower side so I'm trying to figure out if that's the main reason
Yup. Mine is below 510. I stink at standardized exams and i can’t afford very good prep programs.
Idk either :/ I did send in an update, but not sure how much difference it could make here
Tbh, I feel like my score is hindering me more than the later completion date, since it was a retake too oh well, gotta stay optimistic always!
Aha sure, my MCAT is not below 510 but not some stellar superstar score either.
anybody hear post interview rejections yet?
Call and ask for a sooner date. I received an II 2 months ago and the only dates they offered were late March. I called for an earlier date and was able to schedule for October instead. They were very accommodating and had wide availability.
You're an angel! Thank you so much for this incredibly useful info
Can anyone currently applying or previous applicants speak on whether they have had success in receiving an II after sending an update?
Also any recommendations to whom an update letter should be addressed?
Address it to admissions committee.
I don’t think it will have much effect but it’s impossible to be sure.
For any current students, around when did you receive your "offer package?"
I called the office of financial aid and was told that students hear about scholarships/grants only around June. Was this your experience?
Withdrew my app. Best of luck to everyone!
So I submitted an update letter. Does it ever get marked as received on portal or do you automatically assume it’s received?
When should we expect waitlist movement? I guess after interviews are done in mid-March?
Accepted! Interviewed 11/12.
have there been any who interviewed 10/29, 10/30 who still haven't heard back?
also waitlisted. Interview was 11/8
Thanks so much!
anyone else silent since being marked complete in october?
completed July 28th
Silence since August
Anyone get off hold yet lmao?
Accepted yesterday! Interviewed 11/12. Does anyone know if they match scholarship money from other schools?
WalMart price matches with Amazon now, so I don't see why this should be any different.
Haha I wish. I haven't even been put on hold yet! +2 silence since August.
What does this mean? Is this kind of like a soft R? I'm in the same place too, I don't really understand why I haven't been put on hold or just outright rejected.
Ah, I wish I knew! Part of me hopes that it's a good sign and that they are actively reconsidering our apps as the cycles goes on, but on more pessimistic days part of me just thinks that they haven't really looked at the application yet.
Does NYMC accept updates...was put on hold couple weeks back..
Sorry if this was answered already.
Yes, by email to [email protected] As a PDF with your AMCAS ID number as well.
Does it show up on portal if added?
I submitted my 2ary back in november and i havent heard anything yet. is this a bad sign? I'm from Canada so im really not familiar with the American schools' system.
It says its still under review since exactly 1 month ago...
Am I the only one who can’t see a portal? I enter my info and I get to a page that says my fee was waived and nothing else ...
Sent from my iPhone using SDN mobile
No it does not. Also they don’t always confirm receipt of them because of volume
Just checked the portal, and was placed on-hold today 12/12
Completed by office 10/4
Did you get an email saying to look at your portal, or you just happened to check it? Thanks!
