"Gorgeous facilities and location, students were happy and friendly, team-oriented classes, interviewers gave me some positive feedback about my application and put me at ease (they also seemed like the kind of professors I would like to learn from), fellow interviewees were friendly and nice (seemed like the kind of people I would want as classmates *very important*)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Mandatory attendance enforced with card swiping along with long days of lecture cutting personal study time, even though the students seemed to love their school you could tell that most weren’t happy about the new attendance policy. 10 people to a cadaver (two groups of 5 alternating dissections and teaching other group). The tour was very rushed and the professor who was supposed to talk about the first two years at NSU didn’t show up and neither did the Dean for “wrap up with the Dean” later on!" Report Response
