    Does a current medical student mind laying out how the curriculum is structured as in how much time a day is lecture, how much time is anatomy and how many times a week, how much time and how many times a week is other stuff like histo...how the blocks are structured, etc. Also, if a medical student can go through how their day is usually structured (how much time they spend on lecture material vs. other material vs. anatomy vs. wellness lectures, etc.) that would be helpful as well! Please PM or post here if you want :)

    I would call in and ask, but it should outline it in the acceptance letter. As far as my letter said, it just said C or above in any other prereqs I had left and I presumed that just applied to all other classes. With that said, I don't think stony would be super happy if you got all C's your final semester of college, but you never know unless you call and ask.

    I wouldn't say that. I think it just means they did the late Nov and early Dec interviewees around the same committee meeting. Don't lose hope because others have had good news!

    Don’t sweat it. People in past years waited several months before getting accepted (no waitlist either). Just have to wait and see.

    I’m still waiting on results from my early November interview by the way.

    Second call for any med students or fellow applicants to elucidate the amount of time that needs to be dedicated towards mandatory things like wellness lectures, labs, pbl, etc. This info would be super helpful in both my own decision on where to go and I'm sure plenty of other people's (I can't exactly find this info online, nor do I have the email of any sbu students atm)

    Is the acceptance offer binding? The wording makes it seem so

    Based on previous posts on this thread, from people who called admissions, it is not binding - its just an acknowledgement of the offer and that you would like to hold your seat for now! I agree, the wording sounds intense lol

    Look on their financial aid/scholarship website. It seems to indicate they only give need-based aid, which is determined by your FAFSA and estimated financial contribution and such (EFC)

    for those accepted, how did you respond to your acceptance via email? did you say you are accepting the place in the class or did you say that you are accepting your "seat"

    It....It doesn't matter, nobody cares what words you use to express that you want to save your seat, just send the email lol. If you are stressing about this...don't. It is next level neuroticism otherwise.

    True, true. Since their "3rd year" starts after 18 months, I guess it would be in the middle of other schools third year.

    this is a kind of random question but do med schools talk to each other / know if we're sending letter of interests to multiple schools? I plan on only sending one letter of intent and multiple letters of interest but idk if med schools let each other know if they're planning on taking one student and telling neighboring schools to not accept them etc.

    I read somewhere on the traffic rules that they were not allowed to talk about applicants to other schools, but not sure how much this is regulated

    I emailed an update recently and they said that they aren't going to make most of their offers until April/May because of the new traffic rules. (Granted this is MSTP but the same idea may apply....)
