I tried logging in a few days ago but it was acting strange every time I entered my username and password. Also it didn't have the two choices of where to log in like it did a few weeks ago

I could not log in yesterday..


I got an email telling me that the system had changed and that to get an account on TouroOne you need the new student ID that starts with a T00***** after I emailed admissions, they sent me my new student ID and with that I opened a "new" Touro One account.

Was it your old ID just with the T00 added to it?
 
Is the deposit for reserving your seat really expensive for anyone else?
 
I was originally able to log in to touro one but now I am unable to and the second deposit is due Sunday! I called and they haven't gotten back to me. Anyone in the same boat? Have people received emails with their new ids?
 
You don't need to log into touro one to make the deposit I think there was a link in the second deposit email. I've been trying to get the new T00 ID for a week now to no avail:/

Same exact situation! Why can't we arrange our own domino acceptance?
 
Hey guys I heard that the seat deposit deadline was extended for this school. Anybody know what the new date is? Just trying to estimate when we might see some waitlist movement.
 
Anyone get loans distributed yet? Anyone seal the deal on their housing? School is so soon but I haven't heard much
 
Any did everyone get an email again this past week about the second deposit form?

You won't get loans until a couple weeks into school starting.

Whoooaaaaa how do people do housing then???


That's one of the many horrible things about medical school. You have to figure it out in your own.

does anyone have any idea when they post lecture videos and where we can find them? I thought they said during the interview we could access them right away.
most likely when school starts.
 
Anyone have any idea as to why they may have extended the secondary deposit deadline, other than making those of us on the waitlist extremely anxious lol? Were there not enough seats accepted by their deadline or something?

Do you know what date it was extended to? Just trying to determine when I should call it quits and commit to my other acceptance.

That was basically the most reasonable reason I could think of. Which would be awesome (?) cause they can take more off waitlist. That, or they were just too busy to deal with it now--maybe cause they started interviews so late in the season or something.
 
Did anyone else get an email with a "special" opportunity to transfer to Touro Middletown? What a joke haha

I'm guessing this is bad news for those on the Harlem waitlist? Might mean they over accepted and need to transfer people to Middleton. After looking at the cost of living difference I wish they made this offer to people on the waitlist.

Why is that "a joke." Nobody is being forced to do anything it seems.

They're making it seem like giving up Touro's greatest attribute, the fact that it's in NYC is a good idea.

Not necessarily, could just mean they are having trouble filling Middleton. I'm still confused why they would extend the Harlem deposit deadline if they were concerned the class was too full

But Middleton hasn't seen any waitlist movement, which can only make sense(if they are indeed having trouble filling Middleton) imo if they were waiting to see how much of their excess from Harlem they could transfer over first. I hope Im wrong though.

Did you guys also get an email about requesting for a deferral?

Moreover, have you guys found your places yet?
 
I got one what does that mean?

It means you would start school one year later. That's one year of being a physician lost and the 200-400k gone. DO NOT TAKE IT unless you want to reapply MD having this acceptance in the bag.

The school will eventually offer scholarships to nudge students to take the transfer to middletown.
 
I guess this deferral email means that they really are over capacity w/ students.

So is that something they always do? Try to get people to switch to Middletown?

Not really. Usually Touro gets deep into the waitlist. This time too many students are holding a seat.

They cant hold more than 135 students in the lecture halls (firecode) and they cant reneg on the acceptances without breaking basic contract laws.
 
Random question but is there a strict dress code for M1 students? For the guys, do we have to wear khakis and button down shirts everyday? Are we allowed to wear hats?
