What impressed you positively?

"Good facilities. Syracuse is very urban and kind of gritty, but the snow and old brick buildings kind of mute that and make it seem charming. The price also." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was below zero when I was there. The 'early clinical exposure' they speak of isn't very intense. They basically teach you to take vitals and pt histories." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This late in the interview season they have pretty much accepted all the people they are going to, so the best we can do is a 'high priority wait list'." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started with the Dean of Admissions (I think thats who she was) telling us that if we had any stress interviews to tell her and we would be given a new interview and that interviewer wouldn't be used any more. The students and faculty were very nice, as was the medical school building and the view of Syracuse University. It would be pretty hard to turn down, especially because you receive in-state tuition after your first year ($28,000 down to $14,000) wich makes it VERY affordable compared to a lot of private schools."
