What are your general comments?

"SUNY Upstate was an OK place to go visit. The location and hospital facilities were not very impressive, even though they are making renovations on the college of medicine right now. Your basic med-school curriculum, just phrased a bit differently AND little patient exposure during the first two years. The interview process seemed a bit disorganized (we had a couple of last-minute interviewer changes on my day); we were left on our own after being given our schedule and such." Report Response
