I think the FB group has to be started by an admission director and she goes accepting ONLY STudents…i contacted her and she is working on it. I'll keep you guys posted, also anyone interested in pushing for TITLE IV?? PM me i have a from you guys can send to your congressman, the more we send the higher chance we will be heard and get it approved!!!

Congratulations to all the accepted students! Decisions are usually rendered 4-6 weeks after an interview. If you've been waiting a month that doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong, but send me an email and I can check on your file [email protected]

Is there a page started? I'm happy to start one, though we prefer student run pages. I'd like to join to add information about dates and answer questions relating to admissions.

I apologize if anyone has messaged me recently. There was a system glitch and I lost private messages from the last few weeks. Please resend or email me.

Students are welcome to start the page. I was an admin on the last few student pages. We usually welcome anyone who requests to join and then the SGA leaders remove anyone who doesn't end up starting after the start of the class. Let me know if there's a page up and if you'd like admissions officers to invite applicants to join.

There is a spring 2016 page started.

Call_Me_MD
10-08-2015, 07:44 PM
...to my understanding, basic sciences. There is probably a separate premed group that @Chelsea is referring to.

Hi I am also starting Feb 2016. I am thinking about buy all the books through amazon only the ebooks. I am not sure if we need all of them though :(

gasdogg1
12-17-2015, 03:15 AM
Me personally I am waiting to buy all the books when I get there because I here that you can usually get the PDF's from other students or buy other people's books cheap. Plus I don't want to worry about having to pay for shipping or carry the extra weight when I travel. But don't go by what I do, do what you think is best for you. Where are you from?

gashopeful
12-17-2015, 07:34 AM
Regardless of what school you go to, only buy books if you plan on reading them, and have done so in the past. Otherwise, you will be wasting your money and precious cargo space in you bags. I suggest that you get e-versions of the books (easily found) and use as references. You will not have time (especially in first semester) to read books, you may need, however, to reference them every now and then.

For medical instruments, especially the stethoscope, invest in a good quality one and do not be cheap. I have seen many students buy the crappy Littmann Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscope, which is the cheapest. You are learning , so you will need a good quality one to be able to hear things. Beside if you take good care of it, it can last you for years to come.

I would suggest not to buy any books or order them from Amazon. When you get to the island you will find upper med students selling all the books you need for really cheap prices. So DO NOT buy any books at the moment.

Hey all! I have been accepted into the Spring 2016 semester. On Feb. 8th I'll be flying in from Fayetteville, NC (Fort Bragg). I'm looking forward to meeting you all in a couple weeks! I've joined the FB page via my wife's account since I no longer have a FB account. I haven't purchased books yet. I'll probably do that once I get on the island. Take care everyone and safe travels!

When did you apply? HappyJVT How long did the process take and how did they tell you you were accepted? Mail, email, phone?

HappyJVT
01-25-2016, 02:45 PM
I started applying in July but I hadn't finished the prerequisites yet, so my application was open for about 5 months. I was able to interview about a month before finishing my last two prerequisites and then about a week and a half after submitting those transcripts I received a call from admissions informing me of my acceptance. I receieved an email not long after that and an official letter in the mail about a week later. My understanding is the average turn around is 4-6 weeks after the application is complete, but I suspect as the semester nears they may process them a bit faster than than that.

HappyJVT correct with the typical turn around time of 4-6 weeks following an interview. However, seats remain in our February class and we can get decisions to candidates within a week of completing an interview. We're trying to phone all accepted candidates to speed things along, in addition to mailed and emailed decisions. Students who interview with me or our field staff may get a text message. Our financial aid team is actively reaching out to accepted students to see if they can assist with the aid process, but candidates who have filled out a FAFSA already have told me the process is pretty quick. Students who apply for aid after they start medical school may have some delays in receiving their loan, but there is currently no deadline to apply.

Hi! I have been accepted for the Spring 17 class. I was wondering if you guys could provide some information on which apartments are safe, clean, and affordable. And any other tips or things you wish you'd knew before arriving.
