Hi,

I am a US MD senior and I applied to about 35 programs. My school is down south but I mainly applied to the Northeast area since I am originally from there. So far, I have heard only from 1 in NYC. 3 in Boston, 1 in NJ and 1 in Philly.
As far as the programs I heard back from, 3-4 of them are middle/upper level places, at least judging from the rankings talked about on SDN.

Is there a reason why I have not heard more from NYC? The bulk of my applications are to programs there. Should I start applying to more programs?

My stats:

Step 1 passed, but only with a 210.
No deficiencies on my courses and did not repeat anything.
Scored well in Psych rotation, actually my highest grade out of all my rotations with a 94%
Have 3 recommendations, one from psych and one from family med.

Possible demerits:
Have not taken Step 2 but scheduled to take them soon
Submitted application late on Sept 25.

Thank you!

I'm not sure if it helps you or not to know this, but I also haven't heard ANYTHING from any NYC programs... I applied to AE Montefiore, NYU, SUNY downstate, Beth Israel, and Maimonides. I'm a DO student, slightly below avg board scores, no red flags, good LORs, and 13 interviews from places mostly in the midwest, some more competitive than others.

I only have 6 interviews also and I'm getting concerned too! Is there a time by which I should assume I have gotten all my interviews?

I heard from a resident that NYC was later than most with their invites, at least she said that was true in her case when she applied.
