I believe admission to the two year program is less competitive than for the accelerated program.

The two year program gets a similar number of applicants (600~) and has only 80 seats still. (with some reserved for veterans)

Yeah the 2 year has the same stats number wise but I wonder if they evaluate it with a slightly different perspective due to the differences in the program. With the vets seats taking off, the odds of getting in gets even less then with the 1 year

Hi everyone, I am also part of the accelerated program this year and would love to help with any questions you may have. I know the anxiety must be killing you with waiting to find out if you are in. I wanted to clarify that the 2 year program does not selectively only have spots saved for veterans. The one year program also has veterans in our program so do not only correlate the two year program with saving seats for veterans. Rumor has it that the school as a whole must have a certain percentage of veterans so it is not exclusive to the 2 year program.

Someone asked earlier about working in the program, and it is extremely difficult they are not lying or trying to turn you in the wrong way with telling you not to work. I stayed per diem at my current job to be able to work during breaks and maybe a shift here and there and during the semesters I was able to pick up a shift maybe once a month sometimes twice depending on if we had a break or it was somewhat light. I also know of some people who tried to consecutively work once a week but they were only able to do so because their job was extremely accommodating with their schedule because you MUST be flexible. Our schedule has been changed multiple times with short notice and you just need to be able to go with the flow, the school is your first priority so an excuse of I have work will not cut it because you were warned to not have other things going on.

As previously stated the clinical groups you get to chose during the summer, and they will explain what the different groups mean, but whatever group you get assigned to over the summer (unless it is sb24) it really doesn't matter because it all gets changed up come the fall because of the other options they have. They keep everyone at stony brook for the first semester to make sure you know something before representing the school at different locations. I'll try my best to continue to check the forum to help answer any questions you may have, should hopefully have more time with finals finally beginning to wrap up.

Good luck with hopefully finding out soon on your acceptance and be ready for a very long year that will be worth it in the end! This program definitely tests your determination and your will-power, but it is one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am so glad that I have had this opportunity. The people that I have met in the program are amazing also, don't know where I would be without them by my side.

I never received an interview so I am assuming I am going to be rejected, but I haven't gotten any email about it yet either.

I didn't receive an interview either so I am also expecting a rejection letter. However, I want to point out to those that are anticipating decisions this week that a poster earlier said that after her Nov. 8th interview she was told around 8 weeks before decisions are sent out, which would put it in early January. So it might be best to save the stress for a couple weeks in the future!

I'm hoping it will be sooner because some of us went early and they said 6-8 weeks to all of us!

Our Type A personalities are showing :laugh:
