    From what I've seen on this thread it seems like everyone is put on hold but they do pull a decent amount of people from hold after December.

    What does it look like on the portal if you get an II? (Obviously I’m asking so I don’t have one, but I’d love to know what to look for ;))

    Does anyone know what the lowest mcat is that they will accept? Is it possible to get an II with a 500-505 score with a strong GPA and extra curriculars (especially in the health field), NY resident..

    Honestly, NY is the worst state to be in when applying for medical school. :(

    I’ve realized this. Every other state has in-state preference but when it comes to NY they literally look for out of state applicants

    Put on hold 6:00am this morning

    3.6cGPA 513 MCAT International applicant. Professional Degree. Complete 10/03.

    A little bummed out - I would've loved to have had the chance to interview at this school.

    Goodluck everyone else!

    Posting this a little late but I was put on HPA list (post interview) on 11/9.
    Does anyone know the chance of HPA turning into acceptance?

    No, not yet. However, they did say we should contact them if its been over 5 weeks since we interviewed. Hopefully, we hear back this week.

    Congrats!!! As someone that also interviewed late October, I am super surprised that someone heard back already! I could have sworn they said that we weren't going to hear anything until early/mid-December. I just checked my portal and still have the same committee review status :(.

    Can I ask for your stats and IS/OOS status?

    My portal is cleared but I don't see anything. Does this mean reject or wait list?

    Sooo, I haven't heard back yet. Not even a hold. Complete email 8/30.

    It seems like almost everyone has gotten a hold or a II yet? Even the occasional R.

    (For context, I got a II back in October at another public NYS school).
