CASPA Application Cycle 2018-2019 (bay shore, manhattan, NUMC)

Recommended Posts

Figured I would start this years thread!

 

I was CASPA verified (for all three programs) on 6/9 and received confirmation that my application was complete and under review from Touro Manhattan and NUMC today (6/29)!  Didn't get one from bay shore though.  Any one else apply to these schools??

I just got the email for an interview and I am not happy with the lack of advance notice. I will have to fly there for the day and flights are crazy expensive from where I am flying from. Don't know what to do...

Damn that’s rough :/.  Not sure what airport you were searching, ISP is closest,  but JFK or even LGA might be cheaper and you can take the train to bay shore?

I did not think about ISP, I will look into that, thank you!

got an email today saying they decided to keep my application active during this admissions cycle, meaning they will combine my app with the next pool of applicants.  did anyone else get an email like this?  or has anyone been accepted?

Hey!! Does anyone know which of the NY Touro programs have begun giving out interview invites? Is it just Nassua? Or have all of them begun to send them out?

At the interview she mentioned that it would be at least 2-3 weeks because they were most likely going to combine us with the next interview group and then have a meeting, so I think that’s what they meant by this email. I assume if they accepted anyone prior to the second interview they had to be really exceptional.  

I don’t think they do an actual “waitlist” until after all the seats are full, but the idea is the same, they’re waiting to see if they can do better haha
