Well, if I told you, you would probably not believe me. So, how about I just refer you to SDN's search function. Type in "tezzie" in the member's name box. Read the posts and you decide for yourself. I no longer comment about her.

Here's the deally mcdeal...

I'm trying to decide between Einstein and NYU. I'm accepted at Einstein and listed at NYU. But given that NYU's list moves quickly, I may have to make this tough decision (basically on the phone) over the summer if NYU accepts me. The thing is though I love Einstein's buildings, library (gorgeous!), gym, dorms, awesome new lecture hall, study abroad opportunities, ECHO, medical Spanish, etc. BUT I'm not all that jiggy with the location in the Bronx. The ONLY thing I like about NYU is the location in Manhattan. NYU's medical library is something to laugh at, and dorms are "time to get the shower sandals out to go down the hall" type of deal - nasty. So, my question is: Would you choose a school if everything except the location is awesome OR would you choose a school based SOLELY on location?

I'm not sure what you love about einstein's buildings. Care to elaborate? They looked like ugggg to me. As for study abroad--NYU has that and some more. You didn't receive the brochure about that? Dorms at NYU-- You could get a spot at GH instead of rubin. Einstein's gym was no more impressive than NYU's. Besides NYU has NYU UG's gargantuan of a gym to use.

I'm pretty sure i'll be at nyu and i'm totally psyched about living in manhattan. the few students i saw said they loved it and seemed very excited. i interviewed on a saturday so i didnt get much of an impression--is the library that bad? is nyu a bad place to go??

I?m trying to get going on the honors program finding an investigator to work with. Anyone else doing this program?

BUMP. Fellow NYU acceptancees, notice that there is a band of MSSM acceptancees ganging up on us in another thread. We need to stick together and thwart their attacks!

Why so little enthusiasm for NYU around here? I'm trying to ramp up my excitement level a bit, as a recent flurry of waitlist letters have forced me to think seriously about attending NYU. The more I consider it, the less I'm motivated to harrass my way off a waitlist. I work in Bellevue, and I think that both the hospital and the surrounding neighborhood are about as good as it gets for med school. What's more, NYU's curriculum seems to strike a reasonable balance between the extremes offered at, say, Columbia and Cornell. So why are so few people thrilled by the prospect of attending NYU?

einsteins location is as good as it gets - for being outside of manhattan. no tolls to manhattan, most students have a car. tons of jewish holidays. food is cheep. social life kinda sux.

NYU- no need for a car. pass fail. more out of state residencies

i am not into the parties. but if somebody is doing something right, why doesn't he deserve to serve for four more years?

agree with exmike. pan blues need to throw the towels!!

exactly! pan blues shouldnt start political unrest - if anything for the sake of the country. storming into courthouses is not the way to show you can run a country.

I'm assuming you mean "sick" in the "ill/badass" sense rather than the normal physician "unpleasant" sense?

On another note, other than the assassination attempt, I'm not exactly up to date on my Taiwanese politics. Anyone care to elaborate?

Wow! Congrats to both the students at MSSM and at NYU. Those are some impressive matches. I get a kick out of the little rivalry between the schools. They're both awesome and in close proximity to one another. I'd be happy to get into either of them... wait, I already did!!!

I've still got a decision to make, but I'm really excited about NYU. Is anybody else interested in their Honors program?

I am almost 100 % sure that I will be going to NYU next year; does anyone know if we can move in a little bit early into Rubin Hall (say sometime in late July) just to look around and get a feel for the city? Also, I am wondering if anyone knows of a good way to ship things up to New York from South Florida or just say screw it and start all over in regards to the stuff in my room like bed, tv, sound system??

Alright all you NYU acceptees - strictly numbers - do I have a shot at an interview at the fine institution that accepted you?

MCAT = 30Q - 11 VR, 8 PS, 11 BS - 3.4 cum undergrad GPA from Carleton college, 3.1 BCPM there also, 40 credits or so of 4.0 paramedic school at a community college that (I think) will get added into the cum GPA and make me look better at first glance.

This is definitely like deja-vu all over again!

Well funny you say that, because next year I am convinced will be a STRICTLY NUMBERS game. With them moving to AMCAS there will be a FLOOD, maybe even a TIDAL WAVE, of applicants and as a result, it will become even more "number-centric." My guess is that your numbers will get you through the first or second screening but if you'll get an interview... no one knows. Eitherway, next year is going to be a tough application cycle. The same story applies to Columbia but of course it'll be even higher "numbers."

Anyone know what the financial aid at NYU is like? I heard its pretty horrible and that NYU is pretty stingy with the grants... I'd love to choose NYU but the FA package is the thing that worries me most.

Hey there future classmates!

I just came back from NYU second look (for URMs) and the school is awesome. The clinical training at Bellevue seems unparalleled, the faculty are really tight with the student body, and there are TONS of opportunities there. (I am 95% sure I am going to go here, I just want to check out the other second-look weekends to be sure.)

Anyway, I went to UCLA for UG and live in NYC currently. I am 27, took some time off after undergrad working and getting my MPH. So far, I think I want to go into OB/GYN...

What about you all? Can't wait to meet you!
