I'm a sophomore in NYIT (in the BS/DO program) and I wanted to major in biology because I was reading some previous posts in SDN and it mentions that majoring in biology prepares you the best for medical school.
I was thinking of transferring to St. John's at first, but the high tuition is holding me back. Then I found Adelphi University, but I want to know how education is like there and if teachers are good (especially for classes like organic chem). I mainly want to go to a college close to my house because I don't want to dorm.
Students in this program complete their baccalaureate preparation in three years and may then be admitted directly into the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, which requires four years for the D.O. degree. Following the completion of three years at the undergraduate school, students may qualify for admission into NYCOM only if they have maintained a 3.30 overall cumulative average and a 3.0 in the sciences, received a combined MCAT score of 24 and at least an N on the writing sample, obtained favorable letters of recommendation from the departmental premedicine committee and received a supportive interview from NYCOMs admissions committee. The bachelor's degree will be conferred upon successful completion of the first year at NYCOM.
