    congrats! my app was deferred, but i'm out of state and not sure if i really want to go there anyway. even if i get in, i'd rather choose the traditional path, only because all the residencies people get after med school in NEOUCOM are local ohio hospitals. its a really good program, still, since it gives a helluva lot of scholarship (i think kent state offered me like 50,000 or something).

  • spartanbananasspartanbananas Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    Yep I did early action. I had interviews at youngstown state, kent state, and the medical school

    oh...good job! hey do they offer scholarships....and how many people enter the program in all three schools?
  • zliaquizliaqui Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    Yup they give scholarships! $2500+ at least, i think...

    Ummm I think there's like 110 or so total...with 35-40 at either Youngstown, Kent, or Akron

    I was accepted as well through YSU, had interviews at all 3 schools+NEOUCOM. The NEOUCOM interview was new this year I heard. And scholarship money is a bit less at most of the schools, for instance I'm only getting $4500 from YSU for having a 4.0 currently. BS/MD students unfortunately aren't eligible for the Cochran full ride scholarship.

    Hey wat r the interview questions they give? and wat r they?
  • thedarknight9thedarknight9 Registered User Posts: 38 Junior Member
    oh and how many of the 35-40 come from early decision and of the 110 how many are early decision


    in my words...early decision= those who apply to the program for the oct. 1 deadline
  • zliaquizliaqui Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    They ask you stuff like:

    "Tell me about yourself." (be prepared to rant a bit)
    "Why do you want to become a doctor?"
    "Why is the 6 year track better than the traditional route for you?"

    Well, those are the main ones. Do some research about NEOUCOM and some general medical issues. Just to be safe. :) (They love their five C's.)

    I think they try and fill 75% of the class during early action? I have no idea.
