I got called and invited on Dec 1. I am from CA. I was really surpirsed to get invited, especially on the first day because I am out of state. When I was interviewing there back in Nov I think she mentioned they only invite like 20-30 people at this point becuase most people accept offers to Stonybrook, but I dont remember.

You know, this school is a big mystery to me. I applied to it almost by chance, and it ended up being really one of my very favorite schools. The thing is that this school is UNHEARD of on the West Coast. I really liked it, but really have no idea about how it stacks up to other programs. I mean is this school considered up to par with Columbia or UCONN??? Or is it just "another state school?" I would like to think that it is actually pretty presigous on the East Coast, but it has a fairly low specialization rate I think 15-20% compared to the other "top schools" so thats why I am not sure.

This school is kind of a shot in the dark for me, but I really think I will go there.

I have offers from UCSF and Penn which make the decison difficult however.....

To the OP, why are you curious about out of staters being accepted??? Would you mind addressing some of my abouve questions while yo are at it :) Thanks!

When I interviewed there I was under the impression that they only take very few out of staters. I was told that out of their class of 35, they only had one out of stater actually matriculate.

Ummm...and I think they interview a lot of out of staters. I'm under the impression they interview 2 days a week...3 out of staters on each of those days and last year they said that they only accepted 6 out of staters.

But I'm not good at math so I don't know how many they interviewed exactly. :p

Well i am from NY but Live IN NV. I would like to go back home- but I heard they don't take people out of state. I'm a non trad student and don't want to specialize . I heard this is a great school - the ratio fo teach to stud is low!


I still am not sure if they have accepted any non- ny residents??

You are the newbie?? Looks like you have 50+ posts and I have 0+, so who is the newbie??? :p

BTW, is it just the fact that you want to go back to NY that you are into SB?? Like I said I really felt "good" at the school. But I wish I could put my finger on some more concrete reasons than just a feeling. I was just wondering if there were some specifics about it that make you want to go to it, or is it just the location?

Stonybrook is an excellent choice. They are up there with UCONN and Columbia. It is very similar to UCONN in class size. I've even read on one of these forums that Stonybrook students are prefered over the underexperienced Columbia students. Even if you threw Harvard into the mix, (which sort of is unrejectable,) Stonybrook still is a big open option. It's not a regular state school.

If you have any of these schools: UCONN, UPENN, COLUMBIA, Harvard... your decision would be a tough one.

But anyone other schools compared to Stonybrook I think you can just pack your bags and head to NYC. It's just that impressive.

Anyway, if you are out of state and got into Stonybrook, it is a good mix (I hear) of great clinical and great opportunity for Specializing, as opposed to Columbia which is where you go just for specialization. (Columbia clinical which begins 3rd year is subpar).

i go to buffalo and a lot of my friends had interviewed there so this is what i have heard (but keep in my this is just what i have heard )

They accept very very few out-of-staters and are even more preferential to kids closer to NYC. One of my friends is from up-state new york and he told me that he was interviewed by the dean and the dean told him "you're not going to come here, you're from up-state, you're going to buffalo" If you really want to go there then by all means apply but good luck

To the other poster, I am also from california and i hadn't even heard of stony brook either. However, a lot of people in my class from new york say that it is a very good school. I have heard that they have a relatively wealthy patient pool so you get a wide variety of clinical exposure. Anyways, I can't give you any facts really, but all the hear-say i have heard has been positive about stony brook

When I interviewed there, there was another interviewee who was out of state. They specifically told her that they do accept out of state students and although their class is largely students from NY, one main factor is because a great majority of the applicants are from NY.

And my personal opinion is that Stony Brook is one a great school. It has small class sizes and you really get good clinical training as well as didactic. Comparable to Columbia, the dental students take classes with med students and get a strong medical foundation as well as the clinical training. I can't really compare it in a spectrum with Columbia, Harvard, and UConn but it's definitely not an ordinary state school.
