After we get the paypal email, we are good right?
I got the payment receipt, but I was not redirected back to the secondary as the instructions mentioned. When I log back into the secondary portal, it takes me back to the Review step.

Me too. I hate the portal but I think we're fine. I wish there was a menu or something but all you can hit is the back button lmao

Yeah, I hit the back button as well. It took me right back that Review step with our our picture and answers to the questions. I think we are good since it says that the receipt email is the first proof that our secondary is complete.

2° submitted!
Did you also hit the back button on your browser after submitting payment and getting receipt email?

The instructions said that after payment we will be redirected back to the secondary portal. But it never happened, so I hit the back button and it took me back to the review screen with our picture and answers to questions.
 
Does anyone know if there is one secondary for both Long Island and Jonesboro?

Does anyone know if NYIT COM or other schools offer interviews before receiving secondaries? I just got the secondary email yesterday, but my score won't be in till the end of next month.

No one gets interviews before their app is completed anywhere.

i just submitted my app yesterday don’t even think i’m verified yet and they sent me a secondary already
 
Im trying to decide what campus to choose. I was looking at housing in NY. and it is crazy-expensive. I guess I should have known that.
 
After submission, it did not take me to the payment page. But when I log back in again, it takes me to the payment page. The same happened with y'all?

Yes. As long as you get the receipt email, you are good. NYIT will send a supplemental submission conformation email in a few days.

Just submitted my secondary. Although I chose the NY campus, I said that I would be willing to go to the other one.
With this one done, I am officially halfway done with my secondaries.

I just edited a picture of me wearing a suit into a 2x2 inch size. When you are about to submit it shows your picture and your answer for the prompt. I think it gives adcoms a face to put to your prompt responses.

Im a second year med student at the OW campus, most of us split houses with 2 other students and pay between 800 and 1000 each for rent. So it end up not being that bad, but you dont truly have your own place, which has its benefits and drawbacks

Thank you for the suggestion. I live with my wife and dog so can't really do that. I shouldn't complain though since my wife would be working to help pay for rent.
How do you like the city? and the ambiance of the school?
 
Submitted secondary for the OW campus. Good luck everyone!
 
Hi! I'm wondering if anyone knows whether NYITCOM accepts the AACOMAS fee waiver for the secondary?

Yes. If you were granted a fee waiver, send the email to their admissions email. They will give you a waiver in the form of a code, in which you enter the code in the fee portion of the secondary.

Y'all I am STRUGGLING with this question:

Describe the community in which you see yourself practicing medicine. (Max. 1000 characters)

What did y'all do? I do have a genuine interest and mission to work in medically underserved areas, and I know I want specialty I want to go into. But like I CANNOT think of what else to say besides a dry, bland sentence stating just that. Any time I try to be interesting with a story it just feels like I'm rambling.

heeelp

Stated my true intentions - my hometown which is a MUA. Describe urban vs rural, region of country, MUA status, and your why. I used up the 1000 characters pretty fast by just answering these.

Problem is I talk about location a ton in my why NYIT-COM essay so anything more about MUA would be just.. redundant. ughhhh. I've been fighting with this essay for like 5 days now it's stumping me. Maybe I'll just take the L and only submit a really short one here.
