    Just wondering if anyone who interviewed in February has heard back from NYMC? I interviewed on February 15th and haven't heard anything yet. No news = good news. I know they say it takes between 8-12 weeks... but has anyone received a decision?

    I interviewed way back in October and even then they took 10 weeks (and one day to be exact) to let us know - so I would expect to wait the full time. I can't imagine they've gotten any faster over the course of the application cycle.

    Send a LOI to NYMC. It helps to increase your chance to acceptance!

    Does anyone know if NYMC has a set day of the week that they send out decisions? or is it pretty random?

    Since Jan 1, it takes app 11 weeks between interview and acceptance by email. I think waitlist/rejection is by snail mail. Your waiting for a reply will get shorter as we enter May 15 period, when a lot of students dropping out of safety schools like NYMC and Drexel. These are not bad schools, they are just second choice for many. Make sure you send them a nice LOI the end of April, and again May, June if necessary.

    I know an applicant to NYMC was interviewed in Jan 07. On thursday morning of the 10th week, he sent them a short email saying that he loves the school and is still highly interested in them. The next Monday morning (which is the 11th week), he received an acceptance email in the morning from NYMC with an acceptance package arriving in the mail 8 days later. It may be a coincidence, but it never hurts to tell the med school that "I WANT to come here real bad!" Good luck!

    If you call the NYMC, they will tell you if the decision is coming up this week or not.

    I received the email at 10:45 a.m., but it had been sitting in my inbox since 8:49 a.m. I don't think all the decisions have been sent out, I'm pretty sure they also send out acceptances on Thursdays. So keep cool. Good things are in store.

    Did you send a LOI or something? Man... after how many weeks, are you likely not to get the email? Also, I sent them an email about my status and telling how intersted I am, but they never wrote back...

    After my interview I wrote a thank you card to the woman who interviewed me. About mid march I sent a letter of update/intent via snail mail because I really loved the school and much had changed in my academic profile since August. I'm now double majoring and have been doing research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer center for several months. I ever got a letter back, not even an acknowledgment till today.

    it seems like you heard back earlier than most peeps. Was the LOI the secret?

    For anyone who received an acceptance recently through email, how long did it take for your status page to eventually change? Also, how longs does it take for the acceptance packaged to come via snail mail?

    Acceptance package comes about 8 days later by snail mail (to Cali). You have a lot of time (up to May 15) to make a $100 deposit and sign the letter of intent. NYMC is not too strict with the deadline. If you don't get the package within one week, call the office. Don't worry about the status page. When you deal with a few thousand applicants, you get behind. Congrats to your acceptance!

    Thanks for the update FutureDoc. I interviewed in March so it's nice to have a rough idea of where they are in the applications.

    I hope you get in off the waitlist. Good luck! :luck:

    has anyone tried to log on to their status page? I just tried and it won't let me...does that mean they've cancelled my account and I got waitlisted/rejected? I interviewed in March so I'm not sure what's going on...
