School Overview

School Info

Located on a beautiful 300-acre campus in Fort Lauderdale, NSU has more than 25,000 students and is the largest independent institution of higher education in Florida. Nova Southeastern University is the largest independent institution of higher education in the Southeast, and it is the 7th largest independent institution nationally. NSU awards associate`s, bachelor`s, master`s, educational specialist, doctoral, and first-professional degrees in a wide range of fields. The university is comprised of undergraduate, graduate and professional schools of osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, optometry, allied health and nursing, medical sciences, dental medicine, law, marine biology and oceanography, business and entrepreneurship, computer and information sciences, humanities, conflict resolution, family therapy, interdisciplinary studies, education, psychology and counseling, and family programs

Curriculum

Our innovative curriculum is designed to fulfill our mission of training primary care physicians. Its design is based on successful academic models, carefully developed and integrated. A notable aspect of our clinical training program is a three-month clinical rotation at a rural setting where many residents have little access to health care. You will learn to treat various cultural and ethnic groups whose lifestyles and attitudes toward health care differ from those you will see in more traditional training sites. It is an enriching educational experience.

Facilities

Nova Southeastern University's Health Professions Division offers a rare blend of tropical South Florida weather, plentiful sunny beaches, an easily accessible campus, a dedicated and professional faculty, well established affiliations with many hospitals, clinics and health care systems in the area, and a mission to educate professionals capable of providing the highest quality health care service. The university's main campus is located on a lush 300-acre site in Ft. Lauderdale, 10 miles inland of the Atlantic Ocean and readily accessible via several highways and Florida's Turnpike. The Health Professions Division complex, dedicated in June 1996, is located on 21 acres and encompasses more than 1 million square feet of buildings. The division is comprised of the Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy, Optometry, Allied Health and Nursing, Medical Sciences and Dental Medicine. The division elicited input from students and faculty members to incorporate innovations in architecture, ergonomics and computer-aided technology that provide facilities to enhance the learning experience.

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved this experience, and I loved the student ambassadors, but the admissions office here was enough to deter me from ever accepting an offer. They were disorganized, and I felt as though they wasted our time. Ask them (first thing in the morning), about any wait-lists, because they WILL NOT tell you." More from this Member | Report Response

"Have snacks while waiting for interviews or immediately after. We were starving until lunch. Student ambassadors didn't really seem happy about going there. When asked why Nova? He basically said he got in 6 plans but came for the weather and it didn't matter where you went to medical school as long as it's accredited. The facilities were not impressive. For that tutition iPads should be be provided. I got the sense that clinical volunteer opportunities abroad were just resume boosters especially since in the Dominican republic students stay at a 5 star sandals results because it's the only place the school deems safe. Cost way too much. I would be able to sleep owing almost 400 k. Dont like 2 years essentially have a midterm and final. Don't like exam rooms used to practice and test patient encounters have rooms were some of the sinks work and some don't that hasn't been fixed. Area where school is located is very crowded. Too much traffic." More from this Member | Report Response

"none" More from this Member | Report Response

"None really. It was a smooth process and they let me know their decision quite quickly, unlike some schools that make you wait a long time." More from this Member | Report Response

"Keep doing what you're doing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"They are harder to communicate with early in the interview process (June/July). Understandably due to high demand. Give these wonderful people more help." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be more responsive to students trying to understand their application status and provide them with a time frame in which a decision about the application will be made." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is very hard to get in touch with anyone from the admissions office once students are accepted. Additionally, it takes approx. 15 mins for anyone to even answer the school-wide phone number after being put on hold." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ensure that LORs are uploaded to avoid confusion." More from this Member | Report Response

"Every time I called them about my application or scheduling a interview experience day, the office was so disorganized it was embarrassing. Even after withdrawing my application, and receiving a confirmation email, I still continued to receive calls. One of the emails with the invitation to the experience day had my name misspelled on it and when I mentioned it to the admissions office employee on the phone, she suggested that I had misspelled my own name on the AACOMAS application (I can say I definitely did NOT.) It really seems like none of the employees in the admissions office communicate with each other and I was definitely left with a bad taste in my mouth over it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make decisions faster!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Definitely lacking in the administration/admissions department. Great school, great staff and great people but the admissions people could be a little more on top of things. I had to initiate almost every single interaction, and I was given minimal information about where my interview took place. Should have used webSTAR, but as this was for the BS/DO program and not the regular DO program, it was not used. Still, great experience overall." More from this Member | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
