"The PBL curriculum, the international rotation, the connection to places like Sloan-Kettering, the 24 hour rooms for viewing slides and problem solving, etc. The students were nice and pretty helpful. The Dean of Admissions was very cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour wasn't great (novice students) and the housing for single 1st year students is an extremely small dorm room where you share a bathroom with one other person and one kitchen per floor. As an older student, I was appalled. The building that holds these dorms is very old with an icky common room and a gross work out room in the basement but it's cheap. If you can stand it for a year, you can move into an apartment as a 2nd year." Report Response
