    Is it very important to go to this? I'm scheduled to be skiing in Lake Tahoe that week, so I may very well miss this. :(

    Slap on my wrists?

    ummmm you got in, right? so they can't rescind your acceptance right? so what the heck are you complaining about? no offense. obviously it'll be a good chance to meet people if you're seriously considering going, and if not, then whats the big deal?

    i can't believe this is a serious post. Is it gloating? the people that get into med school really tend to underwhelm me sometimes.

    Who the heck is going to slap your wrists? Your mother? Dr. Heinrich? Your future classmates? Are they going to ostracize you? "oooh yea dude you didn't go to the luncheon, not cool man, not cool, i dont think we can be friends now." (i'm serious tho, if i get into NJMS and see you there, we can't be friends)

    what you need is a slap in the face, wake up homie. good for you that you got in and can go "skiing in tahoe"- you bad bad boy, you

    I interviewed early december and got my acceptance on the 20th i believe or thereabouts. So there is still time for them to let you know.

    As for the luncheon, yes it is totally worthless. UNLESS of course it's your birthday in which case you get a free netter's anatomy atlas. Other than that, just wait for the SECOND luncheon in may which has housing day along with it. Much more important. That day is probably when you will see the finalized class.

    Yup. I'm definitely going. I'm excited to see potential classmates. I hope they'll have some more info about the new apartments being built. I really want to know how much they are going to end up costing.

    I know for a fact they keep track of who goes to luncheons. They pay attention to these small things when deciding about scholarships later on. I decided not to go to NJMS, but I knew the faculty there pretty well. But really though, they only offer scholarships if you're mcat is atleast 34+ (less if you're an URM). So if this isn't you, enjoy your trip!

    Just out of curiosity, is it based only upon your MCAT score when determining scholarships?

    Being extremely fortunate to hold acceptances at both, I just got an email that RWJ and NJMS are both holding events on Jan 6. I was curious if anyone else is in this position, and what they are planning to do about it, as I was hoping to use the luncheons to help me make my decisions about acceptances to decline so to open up spaces for others that are still waiting. Thanks!

    Depending on traffic about 30-40 mins. You can follow me down... I commute from Newark to New Brunswick about 3 times a week so I have the route down pretty well.

    Congrats to all you people who are coming to NJMS next year! (I'm a current 1st year.) And good luck to those of you waiting on the waitlist!

    I didn't go to the luncheon in January this past year. Apparently it was fun and there was food (very key), but besides that it didn't give you any advantage for anything. Any minimum mcats for scholarships, "you have to go to the luncheon" etc... probably just rumors. If you're in, you're in. The housing day in May is more important because it's when you get to meet classmates and figure out housing situations, but even then I met people there who didn't end up in our final class. The real bonding starts in orientation and the first month of school, so chill.

    Oh, and I really like it here. Obviously there are ups and downs about it, just like college, but I know I made the right choice. Come to NJMS! PM me with questions that I'll answer when I get the chance.

    Ok, now back to cramming for my biochem/genetics finals on Monday and Tuesday......

    I'll try this again- my first reply got eaten. I'll definitely be up for following someone. I have bright red hair you cant miss me. Find me and grab me. As long as you dont drive me into a ditch, we'll be cool.

    BTW- what are people wearing to this? Just curious.....

    i don't think that is necessarily true..

    my cousin, who graduated at the top of his class from princeton, got a full merit scholarhip to umdnj-njms. this was stuck right in there with his acceptance letter.

    actually, afriend of mine is a second year and the reason she attended njms is because they gave her a full scholarship from day 1, so i think you might be mistaken.
