    i've seen no sign of nymc accepting any students yet on this board. i'm surprised because it seems as if most schools have begun the acceptance process already. i thought that they began interviewing in early october, and since they say 8-10 weeks for a reply, i assumed there would be some acceptances. any other words out there?

    Yeah I've been wondering the same, trust me :) I interviewed exactly 8 weeks ago today, and they had told us we would hear in eight weeks :) I hope a get a nice late Christmas present one day soon.

    Corleone- have you interviewed there yet? If so when?

    If anyone hears from them (gets in or something) don't forget to post it!

    Meg-

    I had friends who interviewed there as early as the last week of September who haven't heard yet, so I don't think you'll be hearing any time soon. Also, I sent them my withdrawl letter the day after my interview since I didn't like the school (11/27) and they still hadn't received it when they called me for a work reference! I don't know how efficient and organized that office is to tell you the truth :)

    -Good luck

    Hey guys I can't resist telling all...
    I got in to NY Med today!! Yipee I am going to go to Medical School!! Wow I still can't believe it....it's unreal....

    It was cool cuz I am home for the holidays and they sent the acceptance to my house house ("permanent address") and not my school address...pretty smart of them....but funny cuz I guess I didn't need to make hose trips to school to check my mail....

    Thanks guys :) I am still in a cloud!

    I have a 3.5 GPA and 28 mcat (9V, 9P, 10B, O writing). My GPA would have been higher if it wouldn't have been for medical problems my first semester at college (3.8 my sophomore year and 3.9 my junior)....

    My interview was very laid back...no hard questions...I was very nrevous though...just talked about my family and my experiences....the interviews are closed file so it helps to know what points you definately want to cover of your experiences....ummm...lets see....also they ask you if there are any "red flags" in your app....My interviewer was really nice actually she was the dean of admissions...check out <a href="http://www.interviewfeedback.com" target="_blank">www.interviewfeedback.com</a> for more on the interview....there's lots about NY med on this site.....

    Hope that helps :) Let me know if I forgot anything and good luck on your interview maple! You'll be ok...they are really nice there....if you can try to stay with a student too...I learned a lot about the school from my host...

    Hi everyone, I also received my NYMC acceptance yesterday (the 29th). I interviewed exactely two months ago and the application status website does not reflect my admission to the school.
