what do you know about the new Medical School in Long Island, NY. I heard it is going to start recruiting students for next year 2011. As A Long-Islander I am highly interested. But I have no idea about the requirements and expectations

Hofstra University

I am from California and I had no idea that UC Riverside was in the process of building a medical school. Crazy.

Im i my junior year at Hofstra, and we just had a Health Professions Night with the Associate Dean of Hofstra SOM, and it sounded pretty... sketchy/weird? It's not like traditional med schools, they will be doing a mixture of classes along with rotations the first 4 years. Residency at North Shore LIJ, the partnering hospital, is not guaranteed. Only 30 students first class, and supposedly, all of the Hofstra HPI students have a "guaranteed seat", being there are 50-60 of us here, some might be heartbroken! From what I heard from professors and advisors and other professionals, most students admitted will be Hofstra students.

Why would it be guaranteed? You have to participate in the match like everybody else.
