hey guys, so I finally scheduled my interview at NYCOM on Jan 9th, super excited but at the same time freaking out, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I just had my interview yesterday. They were great! The staff put on a great presentation about the school, the student ambassadors were great, and my interview was easy, (but a little strange). I forget the guy's name who interviewed me, but he was really nice. He is the anatomy professor there. He hardly asked me any questions. We discussed a few things and it was really more like a conversation. Then in the middle of the interview, he looked at me and said, "I like you! You are assertive and you know what you are talking about. You are older and more mature. I think I will give you a favorable evaluation." LOL!!! It was wild! But, we didn't talk about GPA, MCAT, why DO, etc. He wanted to know if I did research and wanted me to talk about myself, my life, and my kids, but that was about it. BTW, I am so proud of all my fellow New Yorkers! LOL! We don't always have a reputation for being friendly, but EVERYONE (staff, faculty, students, and applicants) was really nice and down-to-earth. The only thing that is a major down-side to the school is the cost. The financial aid lady came in and went over everything and basically said that our student loans would not cover it entirely, we would have to take out private loans, and if we had bad credit we shouldn't come there because we won't be able to afford it. The tuition and the cost of living is OUTRAGEOUS!!!! Other than that, I genuinely liked the school. I still think DCOM is more me, but NYCOM seems like a great school. GOOD LUCK!!!
Yeah that woman from NYCOM who does financial aid obviously doens't know what she's talking about unless you overgeneralized what she said.
PLUS loans are fixed and you don't have to have awesome credit either. The only way credit comes into play is if you go to private lenders such as banks, etc.
Unless maybe you owe lots of back taxes or have defaulted on a home loan or something extreme... but that's speculation.
so how does this interview thing work?

only thing was that they told me everything was completed.
