    Hi there! I received my acceptance letter via e-mail December of last year. However, I got waitlisted for my top choice school (UMDNJ). But I haven't heard from UMDNJ since so I guess we will see what happens. I'm assuming you've decided on LIU?

    Of well good luck with UMDNJ! I made m final decision between LIU and New York Med and I will definitely be going to LIU. Now, I just have to figure out the living situation and decide when I'm going to move up.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I'm trying not to stress about it, but it's hard to ignore. lol. They did offer me a scholarship. That was part of the deciding factor for me. Would you be commuting from home or finding a place near LIU? I think I'm going to live in the graduate housing for at least the first year since I don't really know the area too well.

    I only live less than an hour away but I'll definitely have to find an apartment/studio nearby to make the commute easier. I do have family in Brooklyn so maybe they might be able to help me out a bit too.

    The summer housing application came out today. I think I'm going to take advantage of that since they said during my interview day that the summer session is really intense because it is only 6 weeks so it may be nice to be right on campus.

    Hi Dustin! I am also set on LIU and am beginning to get really excited! When I spoke to Professor Wing Fu about finding roommates she told me she couldn't send out a list of people in the program for privacy. She did say that she would be happy to send out an email blast with a message to all the students if I sent one to her though. I know one other person from my undergraduate college that is also going to be in our class. I'm hoping we'll start to get more info about registering and oreintation soon.

    Yeah, that's going to be tricky. I think after the first year I may try to move off a bit so that it's cheaper, but I want to be close at least for the first year and see how I'm doing before I decide to commute too far.

    Are you referring to the new graduate apartments?

    No. They put all the summer residents in the Hoyt Strett apartments for the summer session and then they move you into the new grad apartments when the summer session is over. I'm not sure if I'm going to live in the grad apartments yet because I feel like I could find a cheaper place, but I'm staying in the summer housing so I can figure out what I want to do. They said the summer session is really intense so I wanted to be as close to campus as possible to make the transition as smooth as possible. lol

    Yea I hear you. I actually went and saw the new grad apartments during open house and although it was very nice and new, price is very expensive (I believe the cheapest is like $8K-9K per semester and PER STUDENT!!!). And all the studios and one bedrooms were gone instantly. I looked over all the stuff for the summer that was sent in the e-mail and I'm honestly nervous :(

    Yeah, I know!!!! I feel like I could find a cheaper place if I found roommates. lol. It's not cheaper to live alone off-campus, but I think with 3 or 4 people, it would be. Yeah, I know what you mean about the letter. It looks very intense. It's going to be 6 weeks of constant studying. At least that's what I'm preparing myself for.

    Thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for.

    I don't live directly in the city but I live in a suburb of NYC called rockland county. I will be commuting for the first semester or so until I can find a place to live directly in the city.

    Hi guys! Has anyone else applied for on-campus summer housing yet? I'm coming from out of state and was told that most people try to live on campus during the first summer session until they can find a roommate. The tricky part is going to be moving in. Has anyone come up with a plan for moving their stuff up to LIU?

    - Heather

    Hey, I'm going to be interviewing at LIU in a little over a week (for the class of 2017) and was wondering if you guys could give me some insight on what you think of the program? Are you satisfied with LIU? Would you recommend the LIU program to a friend whose applying to PT school?
