What impressed you positively?

"INCREDIBLE, NEW FACILITIES. The OMM Lab, and Anatomy Lab were spacious, well-arranged, and well-kept. The entering class is large, but the auditoriums where lectures are given were accommodating with ethernet access at every seat, and there is adequate study space (given the large study room, and group study rooms) for the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1. The class size is just too large; without purpose; will get clumsy during the 3rd/4th clinical years. 2. There are TOO MANY lecture hours per week." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Medical school administration/faculty is convincingly determined to push NYCOM into the foreground in terms of Osteopathic schools, and Med. Schools in New York in general. What the school has to offer is becoming more appealing than several of the other Med. schools in New York. Structured by a new Dean whom has shown significant promise and intelligence in the few months of her term, and newly motivated administrative staff. You will DEFINITELY need a car to move around the vicinity of the school and for Rotation years." Report Response
