What impressed you positively?

"the location is cool... very campus like... Though it is isolated, white plains is only a 10 minute drive and there is easy access to the city. If you want city life, its there, and if you want quite suburbs, its there too. Also, quite a few hospital affiliations and therefore lots of opportunities. One of the most helpful financial aid departments I've seen. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I felt there are many better school in NY for the same price. The student body is very cohesive, but thats because its a very small campus. I thought their grade system of honors/high pass/pass/low pass/fail is just like saying ABCD,F. I generally don't like it when schools try to look non-competitive by doing this. Just go one way or the other. I was told that there were no opportunites for scholarships through the school in the first two years." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview wasn't bad. I got there though and I didn't have an interviewer. They came in at 9:40am and told me I had been assigned an interview at 9:45am. That kinda bummed me out... Guy was very cool however, but I guess he just found out about the interview as well, because he was not really ready to ask many questions. I don't like closed file because many questions can be answered by looking at the file. They say this is to see how you communicate, but you can ask more difficult questions by knowing my file and see how i can communicate those... oh well." Report Response
