Why is there a lack of NYCOM questions on this post?

    For such a huge osteopathic school, NYCOM barely has any questions or posts directed towards it. I always wondered why.

    NYCOM is a school that pretty much speaks for itself.

    Strong academics with a great set of clinical rotations.

    Do you have any questions about NYCOM? I interview there this year, and although I will not be attending, I was impressed with the facilities.

    You ask why not many NYCOM posts.... well, most likely it is because once NYCOM students are on clinical rotations, they try not to think about where they are.....
    and pags, if your who i think you are.. i'll see you wed at radio

    Hey Pags,

    Is it just me, or does it sound like the current NYCOM students are having a MUCH different experience than we did? It almost sounds like a different school - one you could actually like. :D

    Happy New Year!

    DRSTACY,

    It is possible because they have changed the exam system around. Instead of gettin exams every Monday, we now get blocks every 4-5 weeks. Thank God.

    All of these questions have been answered before. Please do a search of previous NYCOM posts.

    As I am only a second year, i cannot answer all of your questions about residencies. If you want to know more about this particular subject or are seriously concerned about where you will end up after graduation, I suggest you visit the school. Before you go, make an appointment to see Mr. Schaefer (the admissions director) and Dr. David Broder (the Dean for Post doctoral education). They will be able to answer all your questions and concerns. As far as your observations go concerning the 2000 match, most students at NYCOM do aim for primary care residencies. There are a minority out there who want to specialize and from what I've heard do not have problems getting a residency in the field they want, provided they do the work. If you don't get the grades and the COMLEX scores, you won't get the residency.

    You want to know if people like NYCOM. The majority of students, while they do have some complaints here or there, do like NYCOM. The more important thing is whether you will like NYCOM. No matter how many people on this board tell you that a certain school is great, it really doesn't mean anything. You have to visit the school and see if you will be happy there.

    As far as the lack of NYCOM posts. I'm really not sure how popular this board is at NYCOM. We don't exactly sit around and chat about the latest post on SDN. NYCOM is also a tough school. it requires a lot of hard work, discipline, and studying. We don't always have the time to waste perusing SDN.

    My suggestion to you, okonkwo (and all other NYCOM hopefuls) is to do some work on your own. Visit NYCOM. Call the administration and ask them questions. Show some real initiave. This is your education and you are the best predictor of how well you will do, how far you will go, where you will end up, and how much you will like a certain medical school. I can not tell you that.

    I don't mean to discourage questions but the fact remains, there are just some questions that we current NYCOM students can not answer for you and there are several other questions that have already been answered in previous posts. If you want the most recent info, do a search in Osteopathic and Pre-Osteopathic for the past two years. That is when the new block system came into place. Go to the NYIT and NYCOM websites. Call the school and talk to admissions. Visit NYCOM. Request a school catalog. Once you've done all the research, if you have any further questions, they will be happily answered. If at that point, you are not satisfied with NYCOM, do not come here. Its okay to apply out of the BS/DO program. Its okay to do what you feel is best for you.

    Good luck with med school.
