Hi all... in prep for my interview in NYMC next week I'm just wondering if anyone knows a good and cheap hotel or motel that is really close (hopefully within walking distance) to NYMC?!?

I'll stick with close rather than cheap but still both would be nice

Also does anyone know how to get to Valhalla from NYMC (ie: Lagardia?!?)

Thanks alot :)

I don't know much about finding a hotel, I stayed with a student host. (If you have at least a week before the interview you should contact someone by phone and arrange that)

To get to NYMC, the cheapest way is to take the metro-west railroad (Harlem line) from Grand Central Station to White Plains or North White Plains and take a taxi from there. Make sure you have numbers for local taxi companies. I think it's on the NYMC website. Also Valhalla is a stop on the Harlem line but I thinkthe White Plains is closer to the school.

Here is the MTA website to get train schedules:

Good luck!

The Metro-North is probably fine at any time, as for the subway...It's okay during the day but at night I wouldn't. How late at night are you talking about?

(Sorry I said Metro-West in the first post. It's actually Metro-North)
