Does anybody know when the commit to enroll deadline is for Albany?
AMC's CTE deadline is July 8th. Those being pulled off the alternate list are being given 24 hours to select PTE or forfeit their seat. Here's what else we know right now:

You're right, they really are expecting us to shoot in the dark without hearing of the financial aid offer, but at least it ensures a faster turnover of those who might be on the fence about attending perhaps? Here are some other dates they mentioned:

-Request for Deferral deadline: June 1st (yesterday lol)
-Official Transcripts to be sent: July 1st
-CTE: July 8th

For those interested, the documents that need to be submitted within 3 days include a Statement of Acceptance, Acceptance Protocols doc, Technical Standards Questionnaire, and Phonetic pronunciation/White coat order form.

Curious, were you in fact able to view your financial aid offer within the 24 hour deadline?

A message was sent from the financial aid office soon after the acceptance e-mail came through indicating that the internal AMC financial aid application was now available. I was able to access it within two days. Haven't completed it as of yet, but maybe @krustykrabkrew can shed some light as to the turnaround time.

Just got accepted!!!
Congratulations! What time did the email come in at? Seems like they like to send them out Monday mornings.

EDIT: If you don’t mind my asking, are you planning on accepting/attending AMC?

the email came at around 10:30 this morning. I am not sure yet if I will be accepting! I am currently working on comparing it to the school that I had planned to enroll in.

As you guys know, the acceptance email said that I have 3 days to submit all documents, but that I needed to select PTE on the portal within 24 hours. If I select PTE for Albany, would that notify the school that I had previously selected? Would it take away my spot at that other school?
I am very curious about this as well, please do let us know what you find out!

im dying here y'all... :( where's that A?
I feel you on this....

You did get a DO acceptance, right? If so, then you are going to be a doctor, regardless! That in itself is a huge achievement and you should be extremely proud of yourself. :)

can any current students speak about how beneficial it is to have the hospital on site, how far they have to travel to other clinical sites, and what types of research opportunities they have been involved in?

do you mind if I ask you your stats? Just wondering if I would be ranked close to you
While stats may be helpful, remember your rank is about everything (stats, ECs, LORs, interview performance, etc.).

I totally get that, but I do think that stats would be a good chunk of the rank. Also I’m just being neurotic

It's definitely a big plus. I'd imagine I'll feel that even more come third year, but even as a 1st year it kinda gave you a feeling that you're close to the "action." I would always eat lunch in hospital cafe since they give discounts for staff and students. As for research, plenty of it available but you gotta reach out. I cold emailed someone early in m1 and have since been working with that pi/group.

Would I be able to ask you some questions as well regarding research at AMC? When you reach out to the PI/groups, are they PI that you have already met through lecture? Also are they doctors or residents?

I'm in the same situation! But if it makes you feel better, Albany students have said that it's very easy to find good housing even a few days leading up to orientation.
I’m in the same boat!! I’m a bit nervous, but I’ve also been told finding good housing even in mid July is not hard. We will be okay!

Not trying to rush you guys, but remember it's like dominoes. There are thousands of folks around the country with no A's, and WL movement starts when you CTE. Good luck deciding.

Believe me, I'd love to make a decision right this second. I just want to start planning. But my options are to commit to Albany (which I loved and I'd be thrilled to go here) or...wait a bit to see if I move off a waitlist at a program significantly closer to home. I get that the waitlist won't move unless people make decisions and I'm struggling with that logic because we're technically all just sitting in grid-locked traffic, but wouldn't it be better for you if I held out for an acceptance at another school?
