Since NYCPM offers fall and spring matriculation, is one semester easier to get into opposed to one another? Also, are there any benefits to coming in the spring opposed to starting in the fall like the traditional schedule?

It's not easier to get into one term than another; both require the same stats for admissions.
As far as what I see on their site, those starting in Jan take fewer courses than those starting in Aug, but Jan and Aug still graduate at the same time.
I believe the Jan term was created for anyone working/with family/or nontrads, and seems like a good option to do well for the first 1-2 semesters.
You should read up more about it using the NYCPM Students handbook (it should be on their website).

You take Anatomy and Bacteriology in spring and Infectious diseases in summer before fall students start. So you would be taking 1 less class per sem your first 3 semesters.

The interviewers only asked me 2-3 questions and then it was just a convo. Never asked my why podiatry so that was kinda surprising. Hopefully that’s not bad!! But it was super chill and enjoyable.

Edit: no one showed up to my group interview so idk what is happening

Not sure if you attended the webinar yesterday about the January class, they mentioned that they're still accepting applications. Deadline to apply for January 2021 is Nov. 30th. Class size should be between 20-30 students. I would suggest you contact them to guide you on your transcript issue, I know they were still reviewing application with non-official transcripts when I applied back in May.

Hi, yes i attended the seminar, the school said they would dispense the transcipt to me in about two weeks, I'm just nervous that seats dont fill up because i didnt know that they dont let you apply for the Fall of the same year either! So im calculating my risk benefit of losing my chance to apply in Fall or acceptance in January

Hi! I don't go to NYCPM so I am not an expert, but if you apply to the January and the seats fill up you should see if they would let you defer to the fall class. In that case there really wouldn't be a risk one way or another? ... If that is a possibility but I am not entirely sure.

attarpd is correct; if you apply to their Jan class and all the seats are filled; they will just add you to the Sept start (same graduation year).
I don't know the specifics, but there should be enough time to apply for and get accepted into the Jan program; keep in touch with the admins.

Hey guys! I just wanted to share that for NYCPM I was never told me about my scholarship until I personally emailed them. If you're noticing you are getting scholarships from every other school definitely reach out to them. I talked to other students on SDN and some of them have had similar issues as me.

I agree on keeping in touch with the Admins, they'll walk you through all options. I didn't know that I could defer my acceptance and was planning to delay my application (I was still finishing up my master's program) and the administration advisor told me to apply anyway and that I can defer up to a year.

I would really just email them and have them give you a call to discuss your options

Thanks guys! I’m more worried about my stats and that hindering my ability to get into the Jan program. SGPA-3.0 and CGPA is the same. My mcat is 495, 4 years as an MA, psych research and leadership roles in a school club.

They’re very vague about the number of seats, just say 20-30, and if I ask how many available seats are left they almost always ignore it. Also could you take a look at my stats, I’m really lost as to if I’m at a chance for an interview even if I apply now? Not sure if October is late in the cycle? And FYI, I’m applying to all 9 schools.

honestly, I’ve been trying to contact using their personal emails and the general Enrollement email, and no ones has been getting back to me. Same with the phone :/ might be busy time right now, but I’m going totry to schedule an advisement appt on the website. I’ve learned about deferment through the forums here, and which is why I’m throwing my stars around to get an idea from Accepted student. I appreciate all of your help guys!

I think you are fine! I had higher gpa’s (cgpa 3.46 and sgpa 3.28) but same MCAT and was accepted today with scholarship! However, I didn’t apply to Jan class.

I think your stats are fine, do schedule an appointment for advising it can never hurt but might help you tremendously. When I was in your shoes I emailed the advisor (Rekha) all my unofficial transcripts and resume and asked for an appointment to go over my stats/chances. Found it very helpful... I just feel the Jan start can be very nice especially now it might be virtual
