What impressed you positively?

"*The students so welcoming and friendly. I stayed with a great student host who answered all of my 1 million questions about the school. To help me get other perspectives, she introduced me to her friends at the school who had more insight on certain issues than she did. *I was able to sit in on class and check out the lecture hall - they were comfy and had good visibility. *I really got the feeling that most of the students really wanted to be there and were happy with what Einstein had to offer." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"*The courses are pass/fail. I got the impression that students did not really have to go to class to do well and were not overly motivated to go to class regularly. Apparently, their board scores are not negatively effected by this." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"*The student housing is subsidized, so living expenses at the school are VERY reasonable for New York. Also, the location of the student housing was great. *They have a medical Spanish program that helps students learn clinical Spanish so they can do exams in a second language. *They are the only NYC school with a community-based free clinic for students to practice at." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved Einstein and I would feel lucky to get into the school. They are a stone's throw from Manhattan, students complete their clinical rotations in 5 very different hospitals and graduate with a wide range of skills. I was postively impressed with their social medicine and community medicine focus. They also encourage and allow their students to do research and take advantage of opportunities to learn in an international setting. Einstein offers its students many perks and makes student life comfortable and I think it shows in the positive attitude and demeanor of the students there. It is also a very family-friendly institution. If you are married or have children they are very supportive." Report Response
