"Streaming videos, OMM lab is nice, good match and clinical rotations, know graduates who are great physicians" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very pleased to see how NYCOM is consistently pushing to be on the cutting edge of technology. Robot-patient thing, massive amount of mock interviews, and streaming lectures (although most schools have this now). The clinical rotations and match list are also quite impressive. I also really like the fact that NYCOM conducts research. NYCOM's health center had the capabilities to treat students with OMM. That really shows they stand behind what they are teaching. Also, it is very superficial but I really liked that there were so many windows in the OMM lab (I really like natural lighting) and I am not sure but I think there were windows in the Gross lab as well.

"School is technologically advanced- have robot simulated patients" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is like being the middle of a forest. The facilities are very clean and look new (don't forget the school was funded recently in 1977). The school is 30 minutes from Queens if you know how to get there. Basically, any major department store/ restaurant is within close driving distance. As soon as you get out of Old Westbury and into the city, you'll get anywhere. This is New York. We have tons of subways, trains and busses. While the school only has 2 buildings they seem to use, the buildings are large. Surprisingly, the school has a high tech simulated patient they let you use. I know this since they charge you a special fee to use this robot. Before the interview, they gave you the residency listings for 2004 and I was very impressed with the wide choices of residencies DOs were able to obtain (ER, orthopedic surgery, surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics etc..) This openness impressed me. The 4 medical schools I interviewed at didn't even give you this info! They also gave you a whole lecture on how much to school will cost and about financing options. What I enjoy most about the school is the laid back attitude the students and faculty seem to have. It's hard to explain what I mean, but you can feel it in the air. I really don't care about the large class size of 260 since I am used to large class sizes and they do get good residencies anyways. It is little concern to me how long I cut up a cadaver or how long I can speak to a lecturer. What really matters is what kind of residencies I can get. This is one of the most underestimated schools in the nation and I was happy to get accepted on June 23rd. Also, the school is the only one I know with a very fair admissions department. I got a 31 MCAT, 3.73 avg and Biochem major and all the Med. Schools rejected me. This was the only one I got in to! Thank G-d for one fair school out there!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was positively impressed by the 2nd year medical student who took us on the tour. She was great for getting questions answered, and we got to see the OMM lab, the Anatomy lab, and the ICC (Institute for Clinical Competence). The other interviewees were impressive as well, as I noticed that I had a lot in common with many of them. The NYCOM match list and the breadth of rotation sites where one can learn in the 3rd and 4th years is important. Also, an interviewer ate his lunch with us and spoke to us, very conversationally, about his life in medicine. He seemed like he would be a very good teacher/mentor at the school. I have the utmost respect for people who don't always need the barriers of rigidity and heirarchy, but rather, show a humane willingness to reach out to all. That, to me, explemplifies what osteopathic medicine should be about. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot! After asking some questions that my friends in medical school told me I should ask, I found out some things that really bother me. I asked students rather than the tourguides, because they are supposed to only tell you good things about the school, or at least neutral ones. So here's what concerns me: 1-They don't know what the cirriculum will be for next year. That worries me because med school is hard, and I want to know exactly how they're going to teach us. For this year, they are completely system based, which means they start out with a ''Fundamentals'' course, which according to the students was a MESS of whatever they felt you should know. There is only one exam per system, and then you have a re-test a week later. They said that 40 percent of the first year class failed the Fundamentals exam, and the same amount failed the neurology exam. That is a lot for me, and apparently the exam was not reflective of the material presented in class. It even contradicted some of it! To make that even more concerning, the students said that the only thing they're sure will change for next year is that they are getting rid of re-tests, so that means that you're dependent on one exam for 6 weeks of lecture. Doesn't seem fair. Especially if the exams aren't ''fair'' to begin with 2-The dean will only meet with students as a whole class in class meetings. There is no open dorr policy, and you can't make an apointment with him unless you are failing out. 3-They are supposed to post the slides on the internet for each lecture ahead of time, as well as have the printed handouts waiting for you in your mailbox, but unfortunately the students said that for the last system they haven't had the notes online or in the mailboxes until AFTER the lecture. It just seems like NYCOM makes a difficult experience even more difficult, as well as unorganized Also... the cost is insane!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The first thing that negative thing about the school was the location. 35+ miles or so out of Brooklyn, Long Island didn't feel like it had a lot going on that I would be interested in. It was just rich suburbia. Most of the students I talked too said they came to NYCOM because they are from Long Island or the New York City area and wanted to stay there. It seemed more about location to anyone I met than anything else and the location didn't impress me. The campus was not warm, inviting or pretty. None of the students besides our hosts smiled or greeted our tour group. The gross anatomy lab appeared to be fairly cramped and there were 6 people to a body which seems like a lot compared to other schools. The class size is huge (300 students) and there wasn't any common areas that students could collaborate together. The cafeteria looked as if it could fit maybe a 100 people at maximum capacity. After adding in the cost of living and expected expense (with a potential 7% increase in tuition a year) NYCOM's estimated cost was ~$63,000. Which means that average student will have about a quarter of a million dollars in debt (not including accrued interest) from the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

Tuition is FORTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR 07-08, WITH AN AUTOMATIC 7% INCREASE EVERY SINGLE YEAR!!!!!! Mandatory student health insurance is ~$3,000, with an AUTOMATIC 10% INCREASE EVERY YEAR! The woman from financial aid was very very VERY blunt. She said that if our parents aren't helping us pay for med school, we should reconsider NYCOM. She also said: ''If you're parents aren't going to be helping you, and you have bad credit, NYCOM is not the place for you. You don't want to come here.'' The school offers NO financial aid.. no loans, no grants...nada. Cafeteria is SOOO TINY. I don't think it can hold even half of their entering class (~320). The Problem Based Learning program. In it, you don't even take Biochemistry as a foundation to build off of. The only class you take outside of the PBL seminars and things is OMM and Anatomy. My interviewer apparently teaches in several different courses.... made me question the size of their faculty... No on campus housing. The students there didn't look like doctors-to-be.

Many seemed to go there because they lived in the tri-state area and didnt really pick it for academics, etc. The school is in Old Westbury which is an expensive area in Long Island, NY.

"Well, I know NYCOM outside of this interview and always held it in high esteem. Unfortunately they did NOT put their best foot forward that day and it made me re-think a lot of things. Basically I didn't feel like they were trying at all to impress us and that we were supposed to impress them. Other schools made it a point to say that we were interviewing them just as much as they were interviewing us. We were stuffed into a room for hourse, the financial aide lady didn't talk to us and they "lost the hand outs" she gave them to give us so we have no idea how much the school will cost overall. Also, the asst financial aide person was there but "doesn't speak in front of people"... ok then. They "didn't know" exactly what the cirriculum is like this year for lecture based students and "didn't know" what it will be like next year, esp since it's changed 3 times in 4 years. We weren't given the offer tosit in on any classes. The students admitted to not knowing eachother and fourth year still meeting people they've never seen.

The library was a joke (The first floor is about 100 X 30 feet). I didn't see too many computers there to use (about 10). You won't get too much attn. Class size is 260.

THe students were extremely stressed out. They said that they get an average of 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. All the tests taken are in a weeks time, so you have 8 tests in a week rather than spacing it out. Their pass rate for the COMLEX is very low compared to any other osteopath school. They do not have a lot of lab classes, slides are shown during lecture. There is no where close to live to the school. I want to live as close as possible since med students are on campus so much. The admissions director kept pushing that students can go into allopathic residencies. If I wanted to go into an allopathic residency I would have applied to allopathic schools! I found it very upsetting, it seemed like they were puting down their own profession. They wouldn't stop talking about money. We all know how expensive it was before we applied. They seemed like they are very unhelpful if students run into money problems. Other schools that I applied would give students emergency loans of upto 20,000 in two days if needed. I left very, very unhappy. " More from this Member | Report Response

I also wasn't too impressed with the school's facilities. However,as a caveat, I might have come in with grander expectations of the school, based on what others have told me.

And despite the massive volume of incoming students, the tuition is prohibitive and keeps going up. The cost of living on Long Island is very high. The library is tiny. The curriculum is less integrated than at other DO schools I've visited. While some of the rotation sites are well-known, others are mediocre, while others are, well, just bad (I searched for HHS assessments of each of their rotation sites). There were few smiles to be seen on students' faces (no, it was not exam time). The anatomy lab smells and is by far the worst I've seen yet on the interview trail." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff---they made us feel unwelcome and annoying. Like we were such a hassle to have (and this is how they were at the BEGINNING of the interview cycle!). They make you sit around in a COLD room for 3hrs waiting for your interview with nothing to do...and noone to talk with. " More from this Member | Report Response

Maybe this happens to her a lot, but I'm sure she's making a reputation for herself, even it's not neccessarily fair to her. This may have been an isolated incident, but it was a little shocking to see a professional middle aged woman as upset about a parking spot as she was." More from this Member | Report Response

I made one of my references write her letter in less than a week just so her letter will make it before my interview day.

"The Medical school administration/faculty is convincingly determined to push NYCOM into the foreground in terms of Osteopathic schools, and Med. Schools in New York in general. What the school has to offer is becoming more appealing than several of the other Med. schools in New York.

"I absolutely loved my experience here. It really made picking this school (if accepted) over my other choices a no-brainer. Their modern facilities, combined with TOP ROTATION choices in NY and 96-97% BOARD pass rates, make this school really one of the premier DO schools in the country. The students also said there is a great sense of school pride among their classmates, which is always good to hear!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Hands-down, the best on-campus experience I've had at any school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very happy with my interview experience. All the students with me were very friendly, so it definitely relaxes you to chat while waiting.

" More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed my time at NYCOM. Because of the high cost of tuition and living/ commuting situation I was hoping I wouldn't like it as much as I did.

"wonderful school, made a wonderful impression on me, first choice!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview is open file, but they do not have your GPA or MCAT scores. The interviewer has your AACOMAS personal statement and secondary application. My interviewer was quiet garrulous during the interview; she had a personal story for almost every topic we discussed. I kinda had to make an effort to say all I wanted to say. However, she was friendly, and I liked the fact that she participated in neuroscience research in addition to being an osteopath. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewers, Dr. Ahn, DO and Dr. Dixson, PhD were really nice. They made me feel comfortable and were really laid back. I highly suggest that you buff up your knowledge on osteopathic medicine. Also, ask the tour guides as many questions as you can...they answer them honestly. GOOD LUCK! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience was pretty laidback, more like a conversation, though at times it was alittle hard understanding him." More from this Member | Report Response

"The person who interviewed me was a MD who didn't speak English very well. I had a hard time understanding the questions she asked me, and she obviously couldn't understand the answers I was giving her (as she asked me two of the questions multiple times). She abruptly ended the interview after realizing she had asked the same question twice. She wouldn't shake my hand upon entering the interview or leaving. I don't understand why they would have an allopathic doctor interviewing applicants at an osteopathic school, let alone one who doesn't speak English very well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews were practically stress-free, more like an informal chit-chat. Campus is pretty. Just be prepared for a long day.

"Whole office is actually nice, interviewer was really laid back, tone was conversational, people i was interviewing with were friendly, ambassadors were nice, facilities were good; no real complaints" More from this Member | Report Response

"The doctor who interviewed me was extremely nice. She had no intention of intimidating me or making me nervous in anyway. From the start she told me that if I see her writing anything they're only good things. She said that she doesn't have much of a say in the decision making process unlike in some schools where the interviewer decides whether you get an acceptance. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the doctor wasn't very warm, but most doctors aren't. she asked lots of questions that could clearly be seen in my file (Ex- what is your mcat score?) and made the interview feel rushed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the people at NYCOM. They were really happy to be there and be DOs. The interview was really laid back so there is no need to stress. I know everyone tells you that anyway, but in this case it really is true. Just be yourself!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It is a good school. Very technological (two human-like robots Stan and Peda), lectures streamed online, wireless everywhere, video-recorded simulations with patients... It's pricy and school does not give much of financial aid. Averall, the scool is good!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxing but I am paranoid about my answers. It seemed too easy..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was in the PM session, so it was nice to have the tour and time to chat with students before the interview. My interviewer was a DO and professor at NYCOM who I had a few things in common with, so my interview was rather conversational. It wasn't extremely stressful, and I feel as though he got to know me as a person, even though it was pretty short. I believe the interview was open file, although we didn't discuss grades or MCAT, only LOR, EC's, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"I registered and waited around with other students for about 20 minutes before they started the day. They spoke about the day and financial aid for about half an hr before the student ambassadors came to eat lunch with us and take us on our tour. The tour is nice because they take you through the anatomy lab, the OMM labs. After that, we return to a conference room and wait there while the interviewers call us one by one. After the interview, we're free to leave." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a nice school. It is relatively compact, but it seems to be a convenient arrangement. I saw several students who, upon seeing me in a suit, wished me good luck. So that was good.

"I was in the afternoon section. My interviewer was having a bad day and didn't want to be interviewing 5 students. In the actual interview she seemed to try to be nice though. The interview started with some specific questions but eventually led to a normal conversation about things besides medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was in a group of 10 people. We were the afternoon session. I was surprised they didn't spread out their interviews more sparsely. We only had one interview with one person and it was, at least for me, a short one. But the school appears to have a large medical class, so they probably accept over >400 to 500 students to fill their class of 300." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview experience was great. The whole day went by smoothly, the students who gave the tour were really nice and honest. When they found out who our interviewers were, they gave us tips on what to talk about, and the areas of our applications that we should make sure to stress. The interviewer was very laid back, no ethical questions, and just wanted to know about me and what I've been doing and where I would like to go in the future.

"This school has a lot of positive aspects as well as negative ones. I know I could go to this school and become a competent physician. However, I do not think this school is the best fit for me in terms of location, culture and people, but it would provide an excellent education. I received an acceptance letter about a week after interviewing and I have to figure out which school I should accept (NYCOM requires a $1,500 non-refundable down deposit on tuition). If you are considering NYCOM I highly recommend visiting the campus to get a feel for the institution to see if it is right for you. Good Luck! " More from this Member | Report Response

This was my first interview and it was a great way to start." More from this Member | Report Response

He did not look down on me at all as if i wasnt the best canidate, which helped a heck of a lot. Honestly if u show them that u are a better person than you are a student and that u have human qualities like fun, being social, and still showing a love for your field you will do fine in the interview.

"Got there at 8:30 (for a 9:00 interview slot), and was NOT the first one there. I was maybe the 6th of about 10 or so that came for a morning interview. I just so happened to run into an old friend of mine who I've seen ONCE since high school (last summer)...who woulda thought? Anyway, there were two interviewers for all 10 of us: one a male pathologist, DO, and the other a female MD with a tough accent to understand. Another interviewee said that the male pathologist is also head of academic probation or something like that...the bottom line is he deals with people who are failing. After like 2 hours, we got lunch, got presentations by two people who's names I have written somewhere else (I don't feel like getting up), including the aforementioned woman from financial aid. Four student ambassadors held a Q&A with us, then took us and the afternoon group (also ~10 people) on the tour. I was back in my car by 1:00PM. I was not asked why I want to be a doctor, only why I want to be a DO. " More from this Member | Report Response

There are no "facilities" as such, such as housing, gyms etc. The library is small. Anatomy labs seem like they can get crowded with 8 students to a cadaver. They are pretty-techno savvy, with the simulation robots and the streamlined lectures. Classroom are decent sized with wireless connections. They are also trying a new problem-based-learning curriculum. Instead of sitting in lectures, students work in small groups on case studies mentored by a faculty member. Its a more hands-on approach with no classroom time for those who hate sitting in hours of lecture." More from this Member | Report Response

In most interviews I went on, the interviewers did not even bother to read your stuff! For a good portion of the interview, we talked about my hobbies. Even though the guy was a DO, he did not pound me with questions about what's so great about being a DO. He just asked what interested me in applying to a DO school and I gave him a good answer. Basically, it was a nice laid back interview with predictable questions and it was evident the interviewer was experienced and read your material. The only "bad" thing was that I left the interview thinking the interviewer was uninterested in me since he did not seem to enjoy interviewing people. But don't let this fool you, since I got accepted in the school." More from this Member | Report Response

Once in, about 10 of us interviewees waited for our names to be called and interviewed. The interview literally took 10, maybe 15, minutes. We were all done by 10 am, and then had to wait until 11:30 when the afternoon group arrived. It would have been torturous but I took advantage of the oppurtunity to get to know my fellow interviewess. There is a Dunkin'Donuts and Starbucks nearby to pass the time. At 11:30, we heard from financial aid, and about NYCOM's PBL curriculum, while having lunch. Then we went on a tour with two first-years, and the day was done.

"Overall positve experience. The interviewer did not ask me any direct questions with the exception of tell me about yourself. I suspect that this was an attempt to see how I dealt with uncertainty or stress. I also think that this particular tactic may have been used when the interviewer managed to go off on a tangent from something that I had mentioned in a fairly extreme fashion. Either he was a little peculiar, or he was trying to throw me and see how I handled myself. He did not challenge me or say anything confrontational. I would say that the interview was more of a conversation than a Q&A session." More from this Member | Report Response

Be confident in yourself and that your reasons for wanting to be a physician are genuine. Don't try to be impressive because sincerity and character shine through on their own. You are the expert on you, not the interviewer. So, don't be sway from your true thoughts and answers. And if you don't know an answer, just admit that (see question 2--I had no clue, and I'll bet that he just wanted to see if I could say, "I don't know" without tiptoeing around it or blurting out some ridiculous answer).

Then we had our interviews. My interviewer was very laid back. He didn't ask any difficult questions and we had a very nice chat. Everyone at the school made me feel very welcome and extremely comfortable. Then we had lunch and tour with first year students, who answered all of our questions. We then spoke to more people from administration and financial aid. Everyone was very very friendly and easily approachable." More from this Member | Report Response

"i got there over an hour early b/c i was afraid of hitting traffic. i sat in my car and tried to talk through some answers in my head. then i went inside and met the other students. they put us in a big room, with snacks, and then interviewers came in and took some people. i was brought downstairs to another office, and chatted with my interviewer on the way down. as soon as i sat down, he asks why i want to be a dr, then why DO, then why nycom. i kept my answers pretty brief, i was nervous. then he asked about what i like to do for fun, and we started talking about the outdoors and the campus. he never once mentioned grades or scores or asked about my research. he just glanced at the secondary i had just handed in. at the end i had the opportunity to ask him some questions. then more waiting, got to chat with the other interviewees (who were so nice!) had some lunch, talked to the tour guide and fellows, and walked around a bit. i felt our tour guide gave us the inside scoop on alot of things, it was great."

"The interview was much more of a conversation than someone asking you a million questions. We informally discussed the issues of stem cell research and medical malpractice insurance. Also, we talked about my research experience and the basics of osteopathic medicine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall very positive although it is my first interview so have nothing to really compare it to. I was very impressed with the facilities but mostly NYCOM's affiliations with so many different kinds of residencies within the NY/NJ/CT area. Look forward to hearing from them. Now if only they could do something about that tuition!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I thought that the interview itself was the most interesting ones that I've had so far. I think some of the the other people who left interview feedbacks had the same interviewer. I actually really liked him and his interview style made the process somewhat of a fun challenge for me. Although, I must say that the interview, in general, did have a mini-therapy session feel and I could see how other people could get stressed out by this particular interviewer. The student seem really happy and it looks like there are a lot of opportunities at NYCOM, especially in NYC. Also, I am acquainted with a large number of NYCOM grads, who have nothing but positive things to say about the school. However, I was slightly disappointed with the facilities and large class size."

"Day began with no presentation, no introductions, nothing. Just 3+ hours of sitting in a room chatting with the other interviewees, Luckily they were all friendly. Since this was my last interview (out of 6)I was able to share experiences with them. Interviews ran long, and around 12:30 we were given a box lunch (cheap), and a discussion with current students who seemed enthusiastic, but knew very little about the new curriculum. Quick presentation by a student services person, who also seemed evasive about the "new" curriculum, followed by a tour to show off the woefully inadequate facilities and saw several unhappy students. Overall my least favorite of 6 schools, both in facilities and in general "vibe"." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was initially a lot of sitting around. We had a few friendly visitors who tried to keep us relaxed. The other candidates were great. The interviews were relatively casual, however I was thrown a few biology-related questions concerning my research. " More from this Member | Report Response

"In the morning when I arrived there was a good half an hour where all of the interviewees were able to talk and get to know eachother. The interviews were held downstairs. I was asked questions, but the interview was at times like a conversation. My interviewer spent quite a while telling me that medical school was like having your head in a vice. He talked about it for about twenty minutes. I thought it was a little strange, but somewhat understandable. After the interviews, some current students came to talk to us. They were great. They were really enthusiastic and seemed so happy to be at NYCOM. Later the Dean and a woman from finacial aid came to speak to us. They were both warm and seemed excited about us being there. We then went on a tour with the students and got to look around the facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I thought it was very relaxed. She didn't really ask me any ethical questions. She did refer to my grades and my MCAT, so if you have any discrepancies between your grades and MCAT scores, be prepared to answer that. Most of the time we were talking about my interests. Just smile, relax, and as long as you're honest about your answers, you shouldn't have a problem." More from this Member | Report Response

"Since this was my first interview, I felt that this was the most I would have to prepare for any of my interviews. Right before the interview, as I sat in my car before going in the building, I pepped myself up and calmed my nerves by just appreciating the fact that I got the interview in the first place. Also, they stick all the interviewees in one room, and there's lots of waiting, so it also calmed me down to talk to others. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a very good first interview experience. I was able to connect with the interviewer since he did his post doc at my undergraduate institution. Met really nice people that were also interviewing. The negatives I cited are made up for by the atmosphere of the school and the opportunities and success graduates have had getting into residencies." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the NYCOM interview experience is very laid back and relaxed. We only had one interviewer, as there was some type of faculty function going on in the afternoon. After asked a few questions, my interviewer asked, "Do you have any more questions?" It almost seemed as if he just wanted to get out of there. I'm curious to know how critical interviewer comments are in the entire admissions process." More from this Member | Report Response

"NYCOM is a great school in a great location. You have access to some of the best hospitals in NYC in which to do your rotations. However, NYCOM is a very impersonal school. From the moment I walked in the door, I was already sweating. I didn't get a very welcoming feeling. The secretary was very dull and only talked collecting our secondary applications and fees. My interviewer was very impersonal. All she talked about was the MCAT. She was very obsessed with it. Granted I got a 25 10(V) 9(B) 6(P) R(W), all she talked about was my physical sciences. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I thought it was great. I felt totally at ease and so comfortable. They also got back to us pretty quickly. I was interviewed on Nov 20th and found out on Dec 12th that I got accepted. There were no harsh questions like "Why did you get this grade in this class?" or even any questions on health care reform. It was more like they just wanted to talk to you and find out what kind of person you were. " More from this Member | Report Response

"As this was my first interview, I was a little nervous. However, during the interview I was very relaxed and calm. The interview just made sure that you want to become a DO and not an MD." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I didn't get a positive view of the school, but I noticed that a lot of the people I interviewed with did like it. Because you have to wait in a room for 3 hours while you wait for everyone to be interviewed, the day drags on - try to get to know the other people there while you wait. The interviewers only look at your application for like 30 seconds before you walk in. The school seemed to me to be impersonal - everyone does their own thing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too stressful. One interview was with an MD who teaches at NYCOM (she asked the basic questions about why I want to be a physician and osteopathic med in general, my grades, and my activities), the other was a PhD in neuroscience (he asked me about cytokines, haha)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I didn't like the school much, but I didn't have a bad experience. I felt like the interviewers didn't get to know me much. Plus, I'm not a big fan of the NYC area in general, since I lived there for most of my life. It's too crowded and the traffic stinks. Plus housing is really expensive and a car is necessary to commute. The campus is very nice though, and there is plenty of parking!!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview and it was pretty low stress. There were about 10 of us there for the day. We all just chatted while we waited for each other to interview. I guess the other interviewer (there were 2) did ask a bunch of DO specific questions, but the person who interviewed me didn't." More from this Member | Report Response

"NYCOM is really great and its my first choice! The student diversity is great and the atmosphere is really very friendly and laid back. Students showed genuin interest in what the were doing and in helping us learn more about the school. The day began at 9am, we had interviews until about 12 and then we had lunch at their cafeteria with a 2nd year med student. After that we toured aroud the whole campus and were given a closing speech by the admissions dean. The day ended at around 2:30pm." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was really laid back. there are two interviewers who interview you individually. i was first interviewed by an anatomy professor who was EXTREMELY cool. he was lying back in his chair with his hands behind his head. he also had a pretty good sense of humor. after my first interview, i had about 30 minute wait before my next one, with a physician. the physician seemed a bit more serious, but his interview was extremely short. he seemed to have looked at my accomas application more than the anatomy prof. after my interviews, i had to wait till the rest of the interviewees completed theirs as well. we then were given a brief tour of the campus and had lunch." More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interview was conversational, the second was a bit more confrontational. Overall, I think they balanced each other out. There was nothing on ethics, just questions that were aimed to make you talk about yourself. The director of admissions gave us the opportunity at the end to make sure our files were complete, which helped me because I got to give him an answer for something that the interviewers may not have been able to convey. The school itself seems to be undergoing a lot of renovations. The campus is fairly small, but the facilities are adequate. The students seem to have made the decision to attend for reasons other than "I didn't get in anywhere else"." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had heard horror stories about this school. I was not even going to interview with them just because I didn't think it was worth it. Once I got there, I was able to make my own opinion about the school. I loved it. If I get accepted I would go there. Their residents are well placed, the % of students that pass the USMLE and COMPLEX is very high. I'm glad I went & I hope I get accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The day began with my arrival at the Office of Admissions located in the newest building on the med school campus. The admissions people were very receptive and helpful. The interviewees were placed in a room off to the side in which a small breakfast is served. Make yourself at home because this is going to be the room you will be spending the majority of the day in. We were then asked to submit our checks and complete our supplemental applications. The interviewer arrived about an hour later and began calling names. As it was not my first interview, my stress level was a little lower than the others with me. I was the last one to be called so it raised my anxiety level slightly. The wait is long, but there are others in the same posisiton as you to help you pass the time. Make sure to read the blurbs on the wall in the room - they tend to ask you about them. First-year students then came to give the tour and we had lunch following. WHen we rturned to the Admissions Office, the Director of Admissions spoke for a few minutes and proceeded to meet with each of us individually. We were then free to go. Overall, the interview was really laid back and I wasn't asked any questions about Osteopathic Medicine nor my motivation to go into medicine. According to the others with me, neither were they. We were all asked the same questions. NYCOM is my first choice and being there seeing all that the school has to offer only solidifies my decision. Good luck and make sure to bring a pen, resume, check, picture, and small paragraph on why NYCOM. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The environment is really relaxed, I thought I was going to get a panel of interviewers but instead it was a one-on-one deal. Time really flies after the interview but the wait prior to that is nerve-wrecking. Overall, the experience was better than I anticipated. All you really need is a copy of your resume and maybe the AACOMAS app, beside for the check and picture." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was so easy...they asked me a few things I wrote about in my essay, and they also asked me about my volunteer experience and other extracurricular things I wrote about, so the interview to me was basically just expanding on my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"For the interview . . . know why you want to be a D.O. and why NYCOM. Also be prepared for the long wait. As for the tour. . . it was ok. The tour guides seemed a little aloof." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, the experience was good. I'm not from NY or NJ, so I expected the traffic to be a little hectic. Yeah it was...I had to have a beer when I got to my hotel. But for you city folk, I'm sure you're used to the traffic. Anyway, I got to the interview and had to wait for a while before they started calling us back. Like I said, it's a good idea to bring a copy of your application or resume so the secondary is easy to fill out. The interviewers were very casual; they weren't out to get me. Just go in there relaxed, know what you put on your application, know the name of their new dean, and know the principles and general ideas of osteopathic medicine. If you take care of this, you're golden. The main thing is to relax. Trust me, the whole experience is not as bad as people imagine. Just put a little time into preparing, like anything else, and you'll be fine. Personally, for me, the tour was agony. This is not a reflection of the school, the facilities are actually pretty nice. The two med students, who were very nice, told some stories during the tour. Everyone was enjoying themselves, but all I could do is think about getting out and avoiding the @#$* traffic. The tour eventually ended, so I quickly walked to my car, tried to start it, and guess what.....I left my lights on!! The car was dead. I ran back to admissions office and told them about my stupidity. They were very nice about it, and called security to give me a jump. The guy found me in the parking lot, and obliged. This showed me that this was a pretty organized school, I was grateful. I made it out of New York, drove back to Pittsburgh, and had a six pack in celebration of my interview day.

"Just the basic get to know you questions. If you have an interview you are 90% there just be able to talk about red flags in your application and why medicine, specifically DO? REMEMBER you have to fill out a supplemental application, bring PEN, resume, small paragraph on why NYCOM, photograph and CHECK! I heard exactly two weeks after my interview. Good luck ALL."

"It was definately postive. I was stressed in the beginning waiting to get called in but the interviewers were really laid back. The people I interviewed with seemed like the type of people I would like to spend 4 years with. " More from this Member | Report Response

"During my interview, I was repeatedly asked why, since my grades / MCATs are high, I was only applying DO and not MD. This is not an effective way to sell me on your school. Then at the end of the interview I asked, "What can NYCOM offer me that the other osteopathic schools I've applied to [UMDNJ, PCOM, CCOM, MSUCOM] can't?" Their answer: NYCOM is the "premiere" osteopathic medical school due in no small part to its hospital affiliations. She mentioned North Shore University Hospital at Manhasset as an example. Give me a break. North Shore has a fine reputation, yes, but they have NEVER admitted a DO into their general surgery residency program. So what good are they? In this respect, the interview was insulting. The tour was nice--I love the pond!--but the tour guide (MS-II) didn't know that much and responded to difficult questions with, "...I'll find that out for you." My advice: If you're serious about going to NYCOM, do A LOT of independent research. I was really disappointed. Pay that much money to be one of 320 (320!!!!!) members of the class of 2007? No thanks. Caveat emptor..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Out of the 5 DO interviews I had, this one was by far the worst! The interviewers were extremely abrasive and impersonal. It didn't feel like they were interested in getting to know me at all! The bulk of the time was spent on me explaining DO stuff. The secondary gives you little to no room to explain your extracurricular activities/experiences and I didnt have the chance to talk about these much in my interview either. With all this said, I was surpised to get an acceptance! I'm not sure what they are looking for in the interview.... Even though my interview experience was so negative, NYCOM is still high on my list of DO schools because of its location & reputation." More from this Member | Report Response

"IF THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU ARE READING A POST ON SDN - SMALL PIECE OF ADVISE: AT THE END OF YOUR INTERVIEW ASK QUESTIONS!!! ASK ABOUT THE CURRICULUM, THE GRADING SYSTEM, ANYTHING. THE INTERVIEWERS LOVE IT." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a great experience. Our student guide was awesome and was a great advocate for the school. Very diverse student body and the clinical rotations are the best. I will definitely go here if I dont get into my state DO school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the whole morning is really inefficient. they give you about 45 min to fill out the secondary-- which is really short (bring your resume to help fill it out)and then everyone has to sit there while people are interviewed on at a time. half way through, another interviewer arrived,which sped things up a little. the interview isn't really stressful, just make sure you know as much as you can about osteopathy. i'd bring a book." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was really nice. I thought that students would be unfriendly and stressed, but people seemed happy and eager to talk about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"They make all of those being interviewed wait in one room and they call you individually, which made it nerve-wracking. They should have scheduled different times for each person to show up to minimize the amount of time that you are waiting. I think they were more concerned with the fact that you know what Osteopathic Medicine is and less about yourself and your accomplishments." More from this Member | Report Response

"NYCOM is my 1st choice. I was impressed by the efforts the school is making to change the apprearance of it's campus. I am excited that Barbra Ross Lee is the dean of the school. I heard from a friend that she "owns osteopathic medicine" in three states." More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxed" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was really easy. Bring a book because there is a lot of down time. Also bring your resume because you have to fill out your secondary application there and a resume helps with dates." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be prepared to defend everything in your application. They asked me about everything (grades and MCAT). This increased the stress level and left me feeling like total CRAP. They were cold and antagonistic." More from this Member | Report Response

"NYCOM is a great school. I have the greatest respect for the people who work and study there. I wasn't impressed by the surrounding area. Many of the students seemed unhappy. I wouldn't have fit in at a school with so much tension amongst the students." More from this Member | Report Response

"One on one in an office. It felt more like a conversation in which they got to know me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was in a relaxing place and I thought there were a lot of good opportunities for 3rd and 4th year rotations. I don't like the fact that it's not in an urban setting with sidewalks and apartments across the street from campus. The director of admissions was probably the most informative person there. I expected a bigger campus because it's such a large school, but there are only three buildings. It was adequate, though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I enjoyed my visit to NYCOM. The school is nice and the faculty are very helpful. I didn't get a chance to talk to many students because we were pretty busy and they were in class, but those that I did meet were very nice. The Admission staff are amazing..they really made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout the day. Overall, I came away with a more positive impression of NYCOM than before I went for the interview." More from this Member | Report Response
