What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are modern and the school is well-kept. The campus consists of only three buildings, besides those belonging to the undergraduate institution, allowing for less time spent traveling from building to building. The OMM lab is state-of-the-art and the Anatomy lab is well-kept, spacious, and well-organized. There is plenty of room allotted to silent study and the students genuinely seem happy. I was told by one of the students that, "The education here will blow you away." The new dean is really an asset. She is very accomplished in the field of Osteopathic Medicine and plans to take NYCOM head-on into the 21st century. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The gym is somewhat small and not very well-ventilated - there are no windows. The library is also small, but sufficient. Should you be unable to find what you are looking for, there are inter-library loans." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The surrounding area is a shopping mecca with Miracle Mile a few miles down the road." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day began with my arrival at the Office of Admissions located in the newest building on the med school campus. The admissions people were very receptive and helpful. The interviewees were placed in a room off to the side in which a small breakfast is served. Make yourself at home because this is going to be the room you will be spending the majority of the day in. We were then asked to submit our checks and complete our supplemental applications. The interviewer arrived about an hour later and began calling names. As it was not my first interview, my stress level was a little lower than the others with me. I was the last one to be called so it raised my anxiety level slightly. The wait is long, but there are others in the same posisiton as you to help you pass the time. Make sure to read the blurbs on the wall in the room - they tend to ask you about them. First-year students then came to give the tour and we had lunch following. WHen we rturned to the Admissions Office, the Director of Admissions spoke for a few minutes and proceeded to meet with each of us individually. We were then free to go. Overall, the interview was really laid back and I wasn't asked any questions about Osteopathic Medicine nor my motivation to go into medicine. According to the others with me, neither were they. We were all asked the same questions. NYCOM is my first choice and being there seeing all that the school has to offer only solidifies my decision. Good luck and make sure to bring a pen, resume, check, picture, and small paragraph on why NYCOM. " Report Response
