Hey guys,

I just received an interview invitation to NYMC (New York Medical College) and I was wondering what type of experiences people have had at the school. Honestly, I applied because I thought my numbers were ball-park with theirs, but I really don't know all that much about the school. It's kinda hard to sift through their website as well (and i am pressed for time with finals). Could anyone be so kind and offer maybe a few bulleted points (pro/con) about the program at NYMC. Also, does anyone know the tuition for out ot state residents? Thanks.

done....any info from anyone else?
I interviewed at NYMC and it in my opinion was amazing.

1) Ridiculous USMLE prep and scores
2) Amazing facilities and beautiful campus, with that a safe campus
3) 3 and 4th yr rotations in Manhattan if you want , but if thats not your thing pickfrom the other 21 affiliated hospitals
4) Brand new peds hospital on the campus which is awesome and innovative
5) got a great feel for the type of person at that school, i.e - collegial feel to the students
6) research opportunities if you want but no thesis forced upon you
7) nice admissions staff, to me the admissions staff says alot about the school and the admissions staff was great
8) its only 20 minutes from yankees stadium/bronx and 35 minutes from the city. The town its in is not that bad at all and has alot of what medical students would be looking for anyway (bars, restaurants, etc)
9) tuition is high but no more ridiculous that most other private schools (Tufts, Rochester, BU, etc....)
10) Anatomy lab is 1000 times nicer than any I have seen (I have seen 5) with RWJ being the closest comparison and its still not even close.
11) There match list is actually amazing esp for placing in Cali or NY residencies

I'm a first year, and while the first three months were pretty tough (anatomy and histology) things have settled a bit now that we are done. As a bonus, it is December and I have been done with anatomy for over a month. NO MORE DISSECTING!!! One thing no one mentioned was the scribe service, which gives you verbatim transcripts of lectures and allows you to buy old tests (for some classes, not for all!). I couldn't live without scribes. NYMC is expensive, but the on-campus housing makes living in Westchester county a little more reasonable, and reduces your need for a car and consumption of gas. Some people get by without a car, some people would say it's impossible to do so, so that is a call that you will have to make for yourself.

The modules are another huge benefit. 9 rooms used mostly by first years (there is another identical floor for second years) with movable desks, chairs, a partition between the two sides, and computers with Internet access and "free" (paid for by your tuition) printing. They are great spaces for both group and individual study and open 24/7.

Tuition is expensive, but I know a number of people who ended up choosing NYMC over less expensive schools because of how they felt about it.
