Hey! I visited UMDNJ's Stratford Campus today, I had a great visit! The campus is really nice, it seems like a great program, very flexible to plan out what classes you want to take and such. If any one has any questions about the campus let me know :)

Hey! Yes I applied there for this Fall 2009, I also applied to Georgetown University's CAM program, Boston University, PCOM, and Mt. Sinai. I may also apply to Columbia's Master's program in Biotech. Are you submitting GRE's or MCATs? I submitted GRE's since I'm not planning on taking the MCAT until this summer.

I was going to take them but the advisors told me not to and just take my GRE. I am trying to figure out other places to apply.

So wait you guys are applying really early for Fall 2009..I was planning on waiting until after spring semesters grades to apply..I hope that won't work against me..does anyone know?
Also if there are any students out there that completed the program can you possibly give us some information about it, i.e. the classes, the professors, medical/dental schools it helped you get into
The basic 411!! Appreciate it!

I heard the program is getting pretty competitive and their deadline date is June 1st. Depending on when your semester ends, it would probably be in your best interest to apply now and then update them with your new grades once your spring semester is over. Also I know of a few students (MD/DO) and 1 DMD student who used these postbac programs to get them into UMDNJ-SOM, NJMS, and NJDS.

Hey I got accepted to the UMDNJ Stratford Biomed program :) They have rolling admissions so the earlier you get your info in the better! And I submitted GREs instead of MCATs and that was fine.

Thanks! I applied the middle of December and heard back the middle of January so it was about a month turn around time. My GREs were ~1000 with my math score being significiantly higher than verbal and I got a 5 on the writing section.

awesome thanks for replying. i must be good then. :) i applied to newark so i hope its not more competitive than that. i just called right now and found out that my application is complete. However, they have to review PhD apps first so they won't review the Masters program until "sometime in February." Lucky you! Congrats again!

did u only apply to stratford?
Yes I was going to apply to Newark too, but Stratford is really close to my house so if I end up going there I could commute and save a lot of $$$, and I wasn't crazy about going to school in the city of Newark.

nah thats not true. Medical students at NJMS told me that the program in Stratford is really good to get into both MD and DO. I also know that there were students in the program that got into all NJ medical schools.

Hi,

I'm little confused.
So for UMDNJ there are two campuses, Newark and Stratford?

Are they two totally different programs or just the same (with same faculty members or not)??

and do they have different applications?

Thanks.

I guess from the previous response the programs are the same. The locations are different--one in Newark (north Jersey) and one in Stratford (south Jersey). The faculty is obviously different as well. They have the same application service (the link is somewhere up top) but on the application, indicate which campus you want. If you want to apply to both, you can send another application (same link) again to the other campus.

just sent my application in. newark is my #1 choice since that campus has the dental school, but would also applying to stratford hurt my chances of an acceptance at newark?

Hey guys,

I applied to the Newark and Stratford programs for the Masters in Biomedical Science. I recently received a series of rejection letters from the medical schools I applied to this summer, so I am a little paranoid about being rejected from these programs too. I was wondering if anyone had any stats on admissions.

I'm at Rutgers University, bio major, Spanish minor, 3.66 gpa and 28Q MCAT. I was wondering if anyone could speculate on my chances of getting in. I am retaking the MCATs this summer because I bombed the verbal section.

Thanks you guys, feel free to pm me too.

Rutgers, YAY!! me too...lol :D

jxc is right, both programs are rolling admissions. I submitted my application in without my GRE scores and the Newark program sent me a letter letting me know what was missing from my app (i wanna say about a week and a half later) ..whereas Stratford didnt but i called them and they told me that they received my app. Once you turn everything in, you should hear something soon about your status...everyone else who applied..how fast was the turn around date for acceptance/rejection/etc??

I'm a student in the GSBS right now at the Newark campus and just came across this post. Out of all the post-bac programs out there right now this is probably one of the best programs and considerably cheaper than Tufts or Georgetown. The professors are great and very helpful. The only downside is that it is in Newark but if you can get past that then you will enjoy your time here. If you guys got any questions about the program I'd be happy to answer them for you.
