What impressed you positively?

"I expected the worst after reading this site. I'm not sure where all of you guys are coming from. I came to Downstate very stressed(my flight was delayed, I was late for my interview, etc). The administrators were very accomodating and nice to me, and my interviewer even rescheduled me in for an afternoon slot. My interviewer clearly really liked Downstate, and I got the impression that the clinical experience is better than at most other schools, because at Downstate you can really get "down and dirty".
