    CCOM required $2000 as well, so you're certainly not alone. But its a drop in the bucket compared to what the total for the next four years is.

    NYCOM is $500 within 2wks of acceptance then $1000 by May 1st or June 1st, depending on when you were accepted. Mine is due by May 1st. Also, non-refundalble..ugh! <img border="0" alt="[Pissy]" title="" src="graemlins/pissy.gif" /> Sucks because I am waiting for my 1st choice, AZCOM, to make their decison..should come this wk or next!

    mbenavidez,

    Just a reminder, tomorrow is May 1st. Don't miss it bud, wouldn't want you to miss out on going to school this year. But, thats if you don't get into AZCOM. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> Good luck and I hope you get in!

    Take Care,
    Dave

    Thanks Dave!

    It has been sent! I will be calling tomorrow to make sure it was recieved. It takes forever for them to get my mail. I love AZCOM..but I really like NYCOM too..either way I will be happy! :) I'm just happy I am IN! :D
     
  10. wow, seems like most of these schools ask a huge amount of $$$ as a deposit. maybe its their way to prevent people holdin multiple acceptances

    WOW, $2000 That's about the same for carribean schools. A friend of mine was asked to pay $2000 down for Ross University in Dominica, But he couldn't so they let him settle for a $1000 down.
    Thank God I only have to pay $100 at OSU-COM.

    i got in to azcom in october so i had to pay a $250 deposit in feb (i think), then a $750 deposit by march and a $1000 deposit in may. this is all refundable if you let the school know early enough that you won't be attending. I am almost positive that all deposits go toward tuition stuff so that helps somewhat <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
    mbenavidez-- good luck on getting in to azcom!! i just deferred this year bc my wife is having triplets-- they have been super understanding about it. The dean just laughed what ever that meant :) who knows, maybe they'll give you my spot!

    UHS was $1000--the first $500 was due two weeks after receiving your acceptance letter. The other $500 was due two weeks or so after that. I just sent all of it at once, since I had some extra money left over from school this year.
    That is friggin high though as well.
    I guess it is the price to pay to become a doctor!

AZCOM will refund only part (I do not remember it was 40% or 60%) of your deposit money. But it is still a lot better than to lose all of your deposit.

    I am extremely impressed Jhug's love of AZCOM. I wish you LOL next fall when you join AZCOM's class of 2007.

    Yeah, I will be attending UHS also and had to pay $1000. I was accepted late and I don't know about you guys, but it was financially draining for me to pay $1000!!! I had to get the last $200 from my church. I think anything over $500 is a bit much.

    goforit-- thank you for the correction!! it is never my intention to provide false info so i really appreciate it! where are you at?? Pre-med, enrolled, resident bound??
    AZCOM was everything i dreamed my medical school to be (that sounds so cliche-ish)-- so i guess you could say i'm love with the place. If they are going to take me where i hope/want to go, i guess i need to be thoroughly impressed :)

    TUCOM asked for a $2000 deposit two weeks after my acceptance letter was dated, and anotehr $1000 by May 15th. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> I'm just glad that the 3K counts toward my tuition, otherwise I would be in a sh*tload of trouble! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> :D
