How would you schedule an advising appointment? wesbsite?
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

phone number?

You can either request virtual advising session through Inquiry Form : New York College of Podiatric Medicine (I would do this first) or email the advisors directly (this might take longer since they're probably super busy now)

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.
Bless you! Fingers crossed now, literally just waiting for my transcripts :/

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.
Don't worry about number of seats and how many are left. You should apply if you want to start in Jan any time before the deadline. There won't be "too late to apply" with Jan program, I can promise you that. And yes, you can apply/defer to Sep start later if you want. These things are generally case to case basis.

Thanks so much! I hope things go well, and I can actually start in January. Gonna make an appointment for next week with advisement and see what they have to say

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!

Were you able to get in touch with enrollment? I emailed Lisa Lee and she got back to me really quickly. I also called Ashely Adcock directly.

Hey! I just interviewed today, I would say if you have any weaknesses in your app (gpa or mcat) definitely be prepared for them to ask for an explanation. I interviewed with one professor and one DPM, they were nice but definitely seemed to grill me about a few classes I did bad in. If you have weak points just tell them what happened and how you have changed your ways since then to be sure it doesn't happen again. The peer interview was more of a conversation and was very laid back

Question for upperclassmen, can we use our own ipad instead of the one provided by the school?

As Dexter said, you have to use the one they give to take exams and that's it. And you can use a personal device for any other purpose besides taking exams.

I got accepted into NYCPM in January (yay!), but just got my MCAT score 2 weeks ago and only got the score verified on AACPMAS yesterday. Is there any chance of getting a scholarship at this point since my app process is so out of order? I got a 508 mcat with a 3.4 cGPA and 3.0 sGPA if that helps.

You should def get some $$$; tell them your MCAT score and ask if you are eligible for any.

Did anyone recently get a scholarship from NYCPM? Due to COVID, the programs do not offer the usual amount, but I'm sure those with good stats will still get some love.

I'd assume its because the school has to pay for extra things like cleaning materials and other covid related expenses, so might have less money to distribute? Honestly not sure. I ended up putting down the deposit for NYCPM today so I'm excited to start in the Fall!

If this is the school you want and you are a supremely competitive applicant tell them how much these other schools offered you. Worth a shot.
