heyimnick said:I got an email from Roger Corbman, dated July 24th, to schedule an interview at TU-NV. I called him the next day, and he said due to some computer issues, they would not be able to schedule interviews at the time, and to call back in mid-August to set one up.
Cuttinemup, if you hear back from him and he says its ok to start scheduling interview times, let us all know!
she's going to be practically all over you now.CuttinEmUp said:who cares..your freakin' hot! lol
Last I remember they are not refundable. Most DO schools, the deposit is non-refundable.Rachael07 said:haha well thanks, but I would really like to know if the $2k is refundable, because then I must decide when to interview. If it is not refundable, I want a later interview, but ahh who knows, such decisions!!
The $2000 deposit is due within two weeks of your acceptance and is not refundable. A 2nd deposit of $1000 is due May 15th and is refundable. All of it is applied to your first semester tuition.Rachael07 said:haha well thanks, but I would really like to know if the $2k is refundable, because then I must decide when to interview.

Time Served said:I interviewed at Touro for this past cycle and got in...the place is one huge building and overall is very nice inside. The interview is laid back for the most part, be able to address any discrepancies in your application and be able to convey your intererst in becoming an osteopathic physician. Other then that, if you really are interested in Touro, show them why and ask lots of questions during and after your interview. Vegas is awesome and and one of the best places to go into medicine...very fast growing community. Anyways, good luck on the interview!
thats a great post. Im just curious, why was Touro NV ur 2nd choice? what about the school made it rank so high on your ideal DO school list?OnMyWayThere said:I chose an early interview because Touro Nevada was my 2nd choice... I got in and sent my $2,000 then got into my 1st choice (COMP). Kissed that $2,000 goodbye but I'm glad I gave it to Touro because they really do invest in the school and their students. Regarding student hapiness, I still keep in touch with a lot of the students there and they're all pretty happy. We were just partying at the Hard Rock last week.
Location was very important to me... I'm from L.A. and it's just a 4 hour flight / 45 minute flight to family. Vegas is a great place to live... you'll be up late studying and something is always open if you want to eat or just study somewhere than home. And you are 20 minutes from the most happening city in the U.S. for post-exam stress relief. Touro in Mare Island has a very impressive match list, and the Nevada campus had to duplicate their curriculum for accreditation so I figure their board scores won't be far off. The administration at Touro is also very impressive and it seems like they work with you to beat the system, as opposed to being part of the system like other medical schools. You also get a ton of days off for Jewish holidays and a weekend off after block exams to actually balance your life with what you please.CuttinEmUp said:thats a great post.

I am going on Sept. 18th - first day of interviews. I would love to go to TUCOM-NV, so I'm not worried about the deposit. Really excited.TerpDO said:just got my interview invite in the email today! so Rachael, you're going oct 23 eh? I'd better check my calender...
but seriously I may plan for a later interview because of the large desposit they ask for. I've never been to Vegas either so I am definitely going to stay a few days after the interview to check out the town. I'm excited!
That's a fantastic attitude to have. I do the Q&A a lot and I always ask people if they're going to be doing anything while they're I town. It shocks me how many people don't take the opportunity to see the city. That was the highlight of interviewing for me. I went and played on the strip at Touro, went to see Niagara Falls at LECOM, etc. You're there anyway, you might as well go out and have some fun!TerpDO said:...I've never been to Vegas either so I am definitely going to stay a few days after the interview to check out the town.

how late did you interview after your interview offer? Do you remember around what dates?Yeah, the 2K deposit is pretty steep. I scheduled Touro-NV as my last interview since I knew it was expensive. For those who are apprehensive, you may want to schedule this interview after your top picks but not tooooo late.
Additionally, Roger is pretty flexible about the deposit and let him know if you have any trouble or need more time. He will let you know what can be done.
As Kubed said, also plan to explore Vegas if you've never been. It's loads of fun.
Good luck everyone!
I am only speaking of what happened the past cycle at the Nevada campus, but, if you need a little more time, ROger may be able to accommodate you. Officially, you have 2 weeks but Roger may be able to do something for you.Sooo....if accepted, you have to submit a decision within two weeks, and pay 2K, or decline?
