does anyone know how Touro COM NY looks at MCAT retakes? do they only look at the most recent score? or do they avg the two scores? or do they take the highest from each sections...i have taken the exam twice. thanks in advance.
Has anyone heard anything at all?...I was looking at the TCOM-NV threads and there is so much more communication...
Nope :-( Just what I posted earlier from my conversation with Mr. Ruiz on Friday:
Regarding the wait list: I spoke to Mr. Ruiz this morning. He indicated that there has been very little movement this year on the wait list. He said this week he only called two people. He did say that the committee gets the list of wait listed students (I meant to ask how many students are on the wait list, but I forgot) and they give him four students to call. If those four all have accepted seats somewhere else and do not want to accept to Touro COM, then it goes back to the committee and they give him four new names.
He did say that there is still hope.
I spoke with Mr. Ruiz yesterday and he said there were 71 kids on the waitlist total. He said the same thing about there being little movement. I still am hopefull because more people will decline the offer the later into the summer.
I truly hope that is the case! 71 seems like a lot of people. I wonder if there are people who are accepted to more than one place and still trying to decide where to actually go.
That is one possibility. I think the real reason is allopathic medical schools taking kids last minute who enrolled in schools like Touro. One allopathic school can cause a cascade of a series of events, which makes this process so complicated.
Thank you for your strong words of encouragement! I really do appreciate it. And my phone does not leave my side, ever, out of fear of missing that coveted phone call!
Have you already been accepted??? If so, congratulations!
The anxiety never ends! ;-) I'm really excited about their teaching style at Touro. Did you feel it was more beneficial than lectures in undergrad?
That sounds like a good plan. What about the OMM labs? Do you still go to those, or are those just for the first year?
That's great news!! Congratulations!! How do you know there are two others?
Hello, I will be finished a Master's in Applied Physiology at Columbia U in May with nearly straight A's. On the side, I decided to finish Medical requirements but taking Organic and MCATs as I completed all others during undergrad. Do you think a Masters degree in a field related to osteopathy would have a lot of weight in my application process?
