"The new classrooms being built in the basic science building" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Since the basic science/admissions building is in Piscataway, while the main hospital is in New Brunswick, interviewees don't get to see it (unless the interview is held there)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How high the tuition/avg debt is -- the costs are about $15k less than private schools, but compared to other state schools, it's a lot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had been to the open house RWJ held in June, which involved tours of both the Piscataway campus and the hospital. Frankly, the hospital's a lot more impressive (especially the new children's wing). This was the most traditional, least conversational interview I have had, so it was a bit more stressful. The video shown seemed to be pushing research, so I guess they want to become more high-profile in that area, while still being strong in community medicine." Report Response
