"The high quality of education tht the students receive. Curriculum is geared towards passing the boards and as a result students do really well on them. They seem to have excellent access to professors." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How isolated the school is. I actually like small cities (I am from one), but the school isn't even in a town really. There is NOTHING around either, no grocery store, shopping, movies...ie no where to escape to easily. Housing is priced well, but you have to live with 3 others in a pretty small apartment." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How isolated campus is. You probably do need a car if you want to be independent and get around off campus at all. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a good interview experience. I really liked my interviewer and it was very conversational. Since it is closed file however, I felt like I didn't get a chance to talk about some things as in depth as I would have liked. We spent part of the time just sorting out the list of activities that the interviewer receives prior to the interview. Also, once I got going on a topic, the interviewer would switch gears and ask a unrelated question, so it was kind of surprising (maybe they have a list of ques that they have to get through?) I also liked most of the other people I interviewed with. It was funny becuase almost all of us were from Cali, so we were all freezing during the tour. I think overall NYMC is a good school, if you can deal with where it is and not being able to escape campus. " Report Response
