Can Anyone Recommend a Post-Bacc Program in NY?

    Going to do a post-bacc, preferably in New York. Long Island area if possible.

    Open to both formal and DIY versions.

    Looking for recommendations, reviews, and just New York post-bacc experiences in general.

    Things I'm wondering about:
    • Cost
    • Class availability (were you able to get into the classes you needed when you needed?)
    • Financial aid
    • Class difficulty (were the classes appropriately challenging or too difficult? I need a 3.9+ so this is a big one)
    • Advisement
    • Committee letters
    • General letters of recommendation
    • Professors
    • MCAT / study help
    • Office hours / general help

      I had a fantastic experience at CCNY (part-time 2009-2013), but registration was a huge problem. Supposedly there is a new postbac premed program with guaranteed seats in required classes. How are they accomplishing this? Special sections for the postbacs? What gives with the $10,000 "program fee"? Maybe there's someone currently enrolled who can comment. I will say that I didn't click with the premed advisor, but that wasn't her fault, just not a personality match.

      Edit: and we definitely had people coming in from the nearer parts of LI--maybe you could carpool.
