    Hello,
    I got a phone call on Friday (October 21) from a third year. He congratulated me and welcomed me to the SOM family.

    :D

    I am ecstatic about my acceptance....SOM was/is my top choice....
    I will not be going to my remaining interviews......not even at my second choice......I am in love with SOM......

    I look forward to starting at SOM in fall 2012!!!! :D

    Got accepted on Friday! :D UMDNJ is my number one, but my advisor recommended that I still go to my other interviews, "just in case I change my mind".

    Doubtful that I will, but I'm going to them anyway.

    But I will likely see you guys at UMDNJ next year!

    Were health forms included in anyones packet, or are they coming at a later date? I don't recall seeing anything. I have the list that came with the interview information via email, but no actual form to be completed by the doctor.

    Does anyone know if we are supposed to get some kind of confirmation when the admissions department receives the signed enrollment form and the deposit. I sent mine in a week ago. Is it safe for me to withdraw from all my other applications now.

    Has anyone heard what the tuition is going to be next year. I think its supposed to go up but they are not going to officially announce the tuition until july. Supposedly, some nj newspaper found out how much tuition would increase, and published it. I cant find this info anywhere though

    No NJ state schools will officially know tuition or monies allocated to schools till just prior to July 1 (the start of the new fiscal year). Please post the article if you locate it, I'd love to have a heads up on the damage.

    Hey,
    I just found out today from another student at orientation that the assigned reading for the summer was "The DO's Osteopathic Medicine in America" and that we have to right a paper on it by the 1st of September...is that true?

    That would be ridiculous. Check the angel website or moodle if that's what they're using now. It'd probably be under the professionalism course.

    They recommended reading it during the summer to get a head start. Yes, we are required to read it and there are 3 reflection papers to write on various chapters. The due dates are spread out. If memory serves me, I think Sept 1 paper is only on chap 1-4.
