What are those BS/DO programs that do not need to take second interviews before matriculate into medical schools ?
For example, LECOM early acceptance program interviews students only once i.e., before getting into the program. Once enrolled into the program, it doesn’t need to take second interview before matriculate into LECOM.
It all depends on what NYITCOM program you get into if you are a local NY resident, I recommend you attend a SUNY school that has the partnership BS/DO program with NYITCOM, that is what I did. So far, it has been the best decision. We’re all helping and studying together and it isn’t cut through. I’ve heard the opposite for the NYIT/NYITCOM undergrad program.
Compared to BS/MDs, it is not hard to get in. I believe if you get a 1290+ and 90+ HS GPA, then you should be able to secure an interview.
I believe it’s 90+ and 1290+, but it does not guarantee acceptance. If you meet that threshold, it will guarantee an interview. It should be said that I know a few BS/DO members that have a 1290 and were still accepted. So as long as you do well during your interview, you should be fine.
It all depends on which NYITCOM program you attend. The main one, which has NYIT as its undergrad, I believe its either 70-90 people accepted but I don’t recommend that one. The SUNYs with NYITCOM have a max of around 10 people I believe.
Well obviously many qualified BS/MD applicants will apply and get accepted here as a backup. Although I didn’t apply to any BS/MD programs, many of my peers did and did not get in.
We have a high school junior interested in BSDO so appreciate the posts here.
I do believe for the SUNY Old Westbury UG leading to NYIT there is a MCAT required and score needed is 508. Do not know if the UG education is such that the 508 score should be manageable…but will post if we hear more, does NYIT to NYIT BSDO require the MCAT?
…thanks for the info!
