What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Haight is a very nice person. There was somethings he said that I did not know or think about before about medical school admissions...but at the same time I think he may be overrated by many of the people who post their interview experience here. The anatomy lab is also great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Didn't have an opportunity to look at more of the facilities nor housing. The student who led the tour was very nice and laid-back, but I wish we could have seen more and had more of an idea of what to expect as students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You have to leave for your rotations...you are only on campus for the first two years and then off. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was accepted, but I am declining. The deposit is so large, and Touro is not my number one choice. I don't want to lose $2,000 in order to go to a school I'd rather go to later. I should mention that I was also accepted into another school that I ranked higher has a much lower deposit. I think Touro is a FINE school...but don't be fooled by the statistics they throw at you."
