Honestly I can not imagine you not being accepted. The 3.1 is a bit low but you have the 4.0 grad w/ 2 med school classes, which proves you can do med school work. How many other grad courses does it involve? And your MCAT score is awesome and so is your research. Did you apply late because i'm surprised you weren't interviewed earlier and already accepted. But what do i know since I didn't even apply this cycle, but i did go to the NYCOM open house in Nov.:D

NYCOM likes high MCAT scores. I got in with similar stats. Your upward trend, research, ER experience and MCAT score are things NYCOM likes. :luck:

Yea, I'd definitely like to attend but the cost is ridiculous. What kinds of scholarships do they give; anyone know?

i was under the impression there wasnt much in the form of scholarships. this was from the open house, but maybe a current student can elaborate.

i received a scholarship offer elsewhere but not at NYCOM. There is scholarship money at NYCOM. the amount is a mystery.

The three schools I had interviews indicated that tuition goes up EVERY year.
