"Before my interview I was not too excited about Albany. After visiting the school and meeting the students, however, I was very impressed with the school and think that I would really like it there. There is such a nice community. Also, the interviewers were very nice and easy to talk to. The tuition is high, but the cost of living is so low that students end up with the average debt for a private medical school education." Report Response
