What impressed you positively?

"Everything. The school is in a remarkable area. The hospital is gorgeous, the curriculum is second to none, and the students are very involved. The match list is pretty solid. I was felt especially welcomed by their openness to non trad students, married students and commitment to diversity. Interviewers were very friendly. Cathy (the interview coordinator) really makes you feel at ease once you arrive at Weill--good conversationalist while I waited for interviews... Financial aid is pretty solid too. The PBL rooms are like a four sided whiteboard box (on the inside) with a floor and overhead lights. There are four large screen Macs in there as well with internet access." Report Response
