What impressed you negatively?

"I met a few students who seemed a little ignorant. As a minority student, I was a little offended. A student's dorm room door had some very sexist material posted all over it. Another student seemed subtly racist. 4th year student said he felt limited in terms of instruction in reproductive & womens health." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That NYMC doesn't have such a focus on primary care. I really want to be a primary care clinician. I actually felt like the orientation was trying to talk me out of this." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Believe it or not, I think this school is really where I want to go. There were a few scary students, but the majority were great; they overwhelmed the negativity. Most of the students seemed very close; roomates were close friends. The faculty I met were so pleasant, accepting, and intellectually stimulating. Overall, I think NYMC is on the right track. They just need to be more selective in thier admissions. Maybe recruit more minority students and expand their offerings in Women's health." Report Response
