    To Anyone who Recently Applied...

    Advertisements



    Who applied just recently? I sent in my stuff today... I wonder when is the next interview at the New York office? Is it in March?

    They will most likely contact you within a week of getting your application with the next available date. If you are eager to know the date, call the NY office and ask, they will tell you

    I applied late last year, heard back within a week and had 3 weeks to prepare for the interview. Best of luck

    I was wondering the same thing. I guess they do not have any real reason to reject anyone without an interview because most of the applicants are (or at least should be) very serious about applying to med school. That's just what I think. There are no real statistics out there... (I think.. I searched everywhere. )

    Dockie, did you join the university? If so, How extensive or hard the process? Finally, do you feel you made the right decision? Assuming you are in, How hard was it to be accepted and what is the real minimum requirements fro admission? Thanks

    Hey Mhawada,

    I currently have a conditional acceptance pending the review of my, undergraduate degree certificate, health certificate and immunization records. The process to this point for me hasn't been that hard although it can be frustrating due to lack of proper communication channels. It gets crazy sometimes since the New York office that I am in contact with are acting as a medium between the school and I, therefore, there was a period when things weren't as fast as they should be. Also, more often than not, if you dont ask, they wont tell: they somehow assume you know everything you need to know. Dont let these deter you from applying though.

    As for the admission requirements, the school doesn't publish any statistics so all i can offer is my own views. I think they are open to accepting any student that they perceive to be serious and with good grades (average and above). I think most people make the cut for the interview but I have only seen one instance that the applicant was told to work more on his basic studies and reapply (its on one of the newer threads).

    I went to University in Indiana (midwest) as an international student. Making the right decision is relative. Personally, its a good decision for me, I cant afford medical school in the USA and I would have to spend 7 years in my country to get a MBBS degree. There are no graduate entry medical schools in my country so I would have to start from scratch. A Research Fellow who came from Jagiellonian university to my school had good things to say about the Program and my professors that I consulted about the school did some research and recommended it too. So it all depends on the options that are available to each applicant. Another thing to keep in mind, is that its not going to be as rosy as schooling in the USA and it cant be worse than schooling in a 3rd world country.

    Hope I this is helpful.
    Good luck in your decisions.

    hey Dockie,
    Thank you for your quick response, I do appreciate your taking out the time to answer me. It is really my son who would be applying to med school, he is studying at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. he will graduate in may BA biochemistry, he and i decided to split the search for schools. his GPA is almost 2.5, he has not taken MCAT yet, probably in march if its not too late or in April, but the result is not till a moth or 2 later, as i understand it. Does this make it too late to apply? what do u think his chances are, for getting accepted, and if he can't join in September, can he do so in January? I know I am taking time from you but I do appreciate your help.

    And that's me he was talking about

    I certainly agree with Dockie here about how they don't tell until you ask, I personally have to make an average of 1.5 phone calls to the NY office everyday for the past week to make sure my case is in process and hear reply only when I asked for one, so don't hesitate to call
