Hey guys! 😀 

I figured we could start a topic and connect a little bit for the time being. The program may have a better way for us to get to know everyone later on!

Where you guys from? Anyone else not from NY? I currently live in central NJ!

I'm from CA! Super excited for this program and to meet everyone 😁. Is anyone planning on living on or off campus? I'm hoping there's some graduating PAs we can connect with who need people to replace them when their lease is up

Huge journey to the east coast! Do you just really want to see NY in general, as well? Haha

I plan on living on campus for sure as I live in NJ right now. Honestly whatever lands me closest to school as I would not want commuting to interfere with our studies. I commuted for undergrad..traffic in NY/NJ is atrocious. I would rather not do that again for grad school you know.

Yep! NY was the first place I ever visited on the east coast and I fell in love with the city. That’s very true...hopefully we’re given options on off-campus that’re more affordable and walking distance as well.

I’m from NY, close enough to commute but considering renting within walking distance... traffic is terrible and I feel like it’s wasted time I could spend studying etc. It’s just so expensive to live in the area

@jtpng That is awesome! It will be an around experience. 

 

@slamm27 Yea that is true, it is expensive. But like you said it would be nice to be as close as possible to minimize wasted commuting time.

 

So this is the first time the program is solely a Master's program and does not include the bachelor's option right? Interesting. How many students will be in the class in total? I did not see it anywhere online.

How old is everyone haha just curious. I am 25 I will be 26 before this fall.

I just turned 22 this past week! There will be around 75 students in the class and that is correct, there will be no bachelor's option this year.

@TDL11 The acceptance letter I received through email stated you must submit the deposit, enrollment form, and contact Dr. Lee by email or phone within two weeks from the date of receiving the letter.

Does anyone who plans on living by school know more about the living situation for us? According to the school site the only housing it lists for graduate students is the Depaul apartment houses, since the graduate building is off the main campus.
