I am posting for someone I really care about. This person is already in at two other med schools as well, but he really really wants to go to Downstate. Reasons? NYC!Vgirl said:By the way Dr. Chiquita- have you gotten in anywhere else and you're just holding out for Downstate? I'm in two schools already but i really would prefer downstate and was wondering if you had any special reasons for wanting to go there.
My friend is not a NY resident, but he did his undergrad and grad in NYC. Also, his family is trying to relocate to NYC as well to be close to his relatives and such. Totally understand your frustration though. Even if they say they don't give preference to in-staters, I somehow doubt that they will pass up equally qualified in-staters for out-of-staters. Hope you get in along with my friend.palatanmr6 said:Dr. Chiquita, is your friend a NYC resident or out of state? Not to be rude at all to you or your friend, but I want to go to NYC schools because I want to stay near my home and it seems as though everyone else and their mother want to go to NYC schools because of the location. This leaves us in-staters in a jam especially since downstate is no longer giving preference to in-staters (atleast not as much as stonybrook for example). Congratulations to your friend on his 2 acceptances! If your friend is in state, then disregard this post of me venting
