    Med school is what you make of it. No matter where you go to med school, or any grad school for that matter, friend groups form. It's natural that people with similar interests or life experiences gravitate towards each other... If you're social and nice/friendly to others youll have more friends or at least acquaintance. Go to the event, talk to your classmates, go to the party, etc. Cliques (or really, just "friend groups") are everywhere and are a part of life. But they aren't impermeable. Trick is to meet everyone before the cliques form.
    There is a prom/formal every year that is a blast and thats the only highschool sounding thing i've experienced. But its super fun and you're drinking out of glasses not red cups :p

    M2 here if people didn't figure that out yet. I liked that the campus was clean, quiet and I could get fresh air. The housing is so close to school. People seemed really down to earth. I liked the location. I had other options and am glad I chose NYMC.

    NYMC gives a 1 out 0f 10 on the MMI. Curious if the only real criteria of acceptance is just MMI scores or they still take other things (Volunteering, grades, etc. into account).

    I got this answer on reddit: Normally each station gives you a 1-10 score with comments to justify it. If you meet whatever cut off they want, you’re probably in

    It’s an average score across stations. Interview score coupled with a review of your application by the committee determines accept/reject/waitlist. All aspects of the application matter, it’s considered as a whole and never as individual pieces. MMI is obviously a huge part (because interviews are very important) but the review is really taking all of the applicant into account.

    I hope that makes some sense to answer your question?

    Would it be worth requesting a feedback meeting on my application if I was waitlisted, or should I wait it out until I am accepted/rejected?

    Definitely wait it out. This waitlist generally moves pretty well and it’s early yet!

    It happens every year, although the actual chances are difficult to say since this sort of info isn’t really available.

    If you read last year’s thread (and the one before) you’ll see many people getting interviews later in the season from hold status.

    I’m partial to JFK and uber myself for simplicity. I don’t recommend renting a car because driving is more of a pain in the city (plus tolls) and you probably won’t need to go anywhere aside from the campus and the airport.

    JFK, Newark and LGA are all fine - I think they're pretty comparable in distance, with LGA being slightly closer than JFK, which is slightly closer than Newark. I would also recommend ubering, if you're okay with the expense.

    I agree definitely. I personally like JFK because they’re a JetBlue hub and LGA is kinda dingy but all are totally fine. Whichever gives the best fare is the one to pick.

    JFK Uber is somewhere from $60-95 each way in my experience depending on the day, which is definitely worth it in that there’s no stress of renting a car and driving. To each their own though, just offering anecdote. As long as you’re there at the interview and at your best, it won’t matter.

    As a NYC resident, I'd recommend LGA>= JFK >Newark just for simplicity of travel. JFK is a little easier to get in/out of, but it adds a more travel time.
    Fly into one of the airports, take a bus or train to Grand Central or the Harlem Metro North stop (M60SBS from LGA is reliable and gets you right to the Harlem stop; from JFK you need the AirTrain, then E, then transfer to a 6 to get to grand central). Then from GCT or Harlem, you take the metro north to Valhalla and uber from there (like a 10-15 min drive) -- this is what I did when I interviewed. I would highly advise not taking an uber or cab in NYC because you'll be looking at a minimum $60 charge just from the airport, and it'll save you maybe 15-20 min travel time (or worse, take longer than the subway due to traffic). Google maps is reliable, and New Yorkers are helpful, so if you're unsure if your train/bus/direction is right, you can always ask.

    Man, I wish I knew. I haven't been put on hold either. The lack of information and ridiculous amounts of waiting involved in this process is frustrating. After 4+ months of waiting, we should have some idea as to where we stand. An R, II, Hold, or some other status should have been given. And this goes to all schools.

    Question for those who have interviewed - was there extensive walking outdoors during the tour? I interview next week and while I am sure I will need a coat, I'm iffy about which shoes I should be wearing. Thank you!

    We only had to walk to and from the shuttle van twice. There was not a lot of walking outside at all but definitely bundle up

    The lack of even the slightest transparency is the utmost upsetting. Us applicants spill our guts out onto our applications, which they end up reading, and yet we get not even the slightest hint of their opinion.

    Applicants are taken to the cafeteria, where they are given a breakfast voucher they can use to get pretty much whatever they want (coffee, fruit, oatmeal, eggs etc). They then sit together in a room just off the cafeteria, and are given the opportunity to talk to current medical students (and each other). It's very casual, and the med students don't have any input into your application.

    Hope that helps!
