Dear Future Jeffersonian,
We are planning our Second Look Event and Dr. Callahan and Dr. Brooks will be sending out invitations within the next couple of weeks. Please mark your calendars for April 24-25, 2008. This event will give you an opportunity to meet with faculty, administrators and students as well as gain more information about the wonderful opportunities offered at Jefferson Medical College.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Hello future Jeffersonians....
Welcome to Jeff... almost everyone has a great time here.... we are located in a fantastic location... and we have some very strong departments medically... theres a brand new building and our president has created a comprehensive plan to upgrade the entire university and health system over the next several years.... so its exciting
one issue that you need to be aware of....is the housing.
there are 3 options for on-campus housing. orlowitz, barringer, and martin.
martin: is a college style, dormed building with shared bathrooms and very low rents...
barringer and orlowitz are apartment style dorms which have recently been upgraded and purchased by Philadelphia Management - an independent management group separate from Jeff....
you must do yourself a favor and stay away from orlowitz..... it is infested with mice and cockroaches.... it has several pipe leaks a year which destroy students' property, and fire alarms occur at all times of the night. this year the heat was unavailable for a majority of the building for weeks at a time, and students had to relocate to the martin bldg or hotels nearby.... the management is atrocious and since jeff sold the building they are unable to help you very much....
so my advice is to live in barringer.... or off campus... the neighborhood around jeff is very safe and has alot of nice apts to live in. i have moved off campus and live in a great place with a deck and pay only 600$ a month...
so... enjoy jeff...welcome.... but stay away from orlowitz....
Gigi, yes you can have pets.. live at Orlowitz and adopt a mouse or cockroach. ha ha ha just kidding... good luck looking see you there next year
yes I just got an e-mail from Med frats, are they good? can you study? which are better. I want my own room. compare to Jeff dorms, only Barr. They sound so cheap... How do they handle the kitchen do they cook? how do you keep your food yours... I would love feed back or should I just live off campus as I am oos. thank you
Here is what I received... I emailed back I will let you know what the reply.I won't be able to attend second look, but I am a little interested in some of the medical frats. Is there some sort of rush event in the fall?
Congrats everyone who just got accepted!!!!! I'm planning on visiting Jeff for the second look. I have to fly in..... so does anyone know if we can pick a day, leave early....etc. I could call admissions but didn't want to bother them with random questions. Also, I'm considering living off campus ....... 21/f, out of state, no smoking or pets.....Any suggestions please PM me.
Also...any suggestions / opinions on medical fraternities....they are cheap and probably fun but can you study and is it really advisable for 1st years?
Congrats once again y'all.
You should call, I interviewed Feb 20 and got a call on the 27th I got in.I interviewed on 2/27 and am anxiously waiting for a response. Everything seemed to have gone extremely well. My student interviewer said he gave me a great review. My faculty interview went really well I think. How long can it take to receive a response? I see that many were called within a week. Yet others 4-6 weeks. I'm just very anxious. Any inputs?
Anybody chose their lender for Stafford loans? I was doing my application today on the JMC website and they recommend Wells Fargo, THE, and Access. They seem pretty much the same. I was planning on calling these companies tomorrow to find out about perks for repayment and such.
Anybody started doing some research on this?
In comparing loan terms, what items are important?
Origination fee (should be waived?);
Discount for direct payment from bank account (what is the max discount that the banks are offering?)
Discount for good repayment record (is this available for Staffords)? If so, how is "good payment record" defined and what's the best deal being offered?
