    Hi Isotope -

    I will most likely be sitting next to you in class at NSU next year! I just have to figure out how to pay that huge deposit first....

    I chose NSU over the other schools I got into because I'm a Florida resident and it is a lot cheaper than the other schools I got into (about $12,000 cheaper). Plus, it wouldn't be a big move for me (it's about 45 minutes away from where I currently live). Also - I really got a good feel for the school during the interview and could see myself there. Anyone else have any comments on why they chose NSU?

    Since NSU is private, I don't think they favor in-state too much. On the NSU Fast Facts sheet I have, it says that 54% are in state vs. 46% out of state.

    There is no laptop requirement for us. Some other programs (like dental) do need one and it is even part of their budget for the first semester. But we do no need one.

    So..you can get that apple if you really want to...makes no difference...
    Hope that cleared that up for ya

    I am sending the deposit when I get the packet. Nova has a lot going for it including the MPH, great facilities, and rotations through major Broward and Miami hospitals

    One thing that ppl complain about (I know, we are like pre-schoolers) is that there are not enough plug-ins for laptops. There are very few in the lecture halls, in the general halls, cafeteria. I am probably not in the majority, but I use my laptop a ton when I am on campus.

    I have a total battery life of about 8 hours (run it down nearly every day) and my computer weighs about 2.5lbs--one of the best investments that I have made. I hear people say all the time that 1. Their laptop is too heavy, and thus it doesn't make sense to carry it around everywhere, and 2. That their battery life is less than three hours so it is a waste to even bring it.

    --Keep these things in mind when considering investing in a laptop. Congrats to everyone on their acceptances. :)

    I have a Dell Latitude x300, which I believe has now been replaced by a next generation X2 or something of the sort. Extended length battery is definately a saver.

    And for all those who want to know what finals are like...Starting tomorrow, I have 8 tests before the 16th (Biochem, CP, OPP, OPP Lab, Physiology, Gross, Gross Lab, Histology, Histology lab). :-D I think I'm going to bring a mattress the the library. Enjoy your freedom, it is definately less here (although not non-existant, we can have a lot of fun when we want).

    people usually say..the longer they look at your file..the better the chances you have..so i wouldnt worry too much, and also i pretty much got invited for an interview 2 or 3 weeks after i sent in my secondary..and this was fairly early in the cycle september-october...rite now..i feel its a little late in the app cycle..probably around the time when propsective alllopathic students that dont get into their allo schools start applying to DO schools..which mite make it a little more competitive to get in...

    this is all speculation though, when exacty did you fill out everything...

    oh yea..and i got an interview invite without my LOR's..i sent in a week after the interview invitation..so my file was complete a good month and a half before the interview..the reason why there was such a big gap in time between the interview invite and the actual interview was mainly due to the hurricane season..

    best of luck

    I sent my stuff in 9/8...got interview invite 9/20...scheduled for interview 11/18...

    Its possible that at this stage in the app. cycle..they are flooded with applicants..just be a little more patient..(i know easier said than done)

    for me: i only had 2 interview invites (AZCOM, NSU) and i got waitlisted at AZCOM...so I was nervous/anxious/scared to find out the results from NSU...but everything turned out great...i hope everything works out for you too...good luck

    quick question for all you current NSU students ..are there any rivalries between any of the schools at NSU?? like do the dental students hate on the DO..or the PA hate on the nurses??

    just curious because i know we will be sharing classes with a mix of different health professionals..

    I don't notice it at all if it does exist. Our histology class and head and neck portion of gross are the only classes that are mixed right now--and they are medical and dental. Our professor jokingly says that they put us together every now and then just so that we can breed outside of our own class. When we have big outings (class run), we invite other the other professional schools along with our own class.

    I got into Nova also. I am still deciding. Why did you decide to go here? Was it a hard decision - did you have to choose from a few schools?

    ...cuz NSU is awesome! lol but really, it has great facilities (including a new rec center for students..finished building this summer), early clinical exposure, and many affiliated hospitals. The school is located in FL, so of course the weather is sunny and beautiful beach temperature. As for some of the unfavorable things you might hear about the school like dress code and attendance, from what i've heard from current students, they are not very strict at all. Also, they impliment an open door policy for all teachers, so they are always there to help. Plus, the c/o 2010, at least those on SDN, seem to be a great group of ppl :D hope this helped answer you and mandolin's question
