    So how is everybody going there? I've heard there's a bit of distance between NYC and Valhalla. What's the best way of getting to NYMC from the airport?

    Never mind, I found it on their website. I'm just worried b/c the directions are geared to people who are driving. I'm definitely not going to be.

    Wow, 3 days, joe joe!!??

    hey does anyone know about how many they interviewed last year and how many subsequently got accepted? I really want to know and go in with the idea that I do have a X% shot of getting an acceptance.

    According to Princeton Review.com, 20% of those who returned secondaries are given an interview. Of that 20%, 1/3 are accepted within 10-12 weeks.

    anyone interviewing at NYMC on the 21st of November?

    Also, I had called in to confirm the date for the interview two days ago. The lady said she's going to send a confirmation e-mail to me soon. Did you guys get that immediately, or do I need to call her?

    This has been my first interview as of yet, and I've received rejections from Vanderbilt (and Hopkins today)

    Hey BM,
    I got my confrimation like a week after i called them. Also for anyone interested, i posted a thread about this a week ago, and I was told:
    1) cab or bus to GCT from LaGuardia
    2) Harlem North Train to Valhalla
    3) Cab to NYMC

    I called NYMC and they said it may be easier to get off at White Plains station and cab it from there. BTW, I don't know how much it will cost, but I dont think more than 10 bucks. And Bruinmojo, i will be there on the 12th, will anyone esle?

    My interview will be on Nov 6th. :D I am soooo excited. It is my first interview invite. However, I am pretty freaked out...first time traveling alone. I can't seem to get ahold of the med student I contacted about overnight stay either. Oh well.

    Good luck to all of you! :clap:
