What are your general comments?

"Albany has a nice hollistic patient approach. The school's systems based teaching seems a good fit for my style of learning. The students are very involved with clubs and the school. The interviewers were relaxed and nice, despite the large number of ethics questions.The medical school and the hospital share space, making the hospital easily accessible by students. The doctors are all very open to being shadowed and there are many opportunities to be in the hospital (if you have time). The current students and my fellow applicants were all very friendly. The students seem to be well balanced and felt like they had time to have a life outside of school." Report Response
