What impressed you positively?

"Nothing the school and education in general are substandard. Several students told me that they were not very happy with the attitude of many of the professors nor were they happy with the location of the school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was told by a med student at Downstate that the teachers at downstate treat their students as inferiors. Professors apparently often jump down students’ throats for asking questions. I don’t understand why because the school sucks and is so run down. Their anatomy lab was one of the worst I have ever seen. Downstate apparently has one of the worst records on safety likely a result of the location and facilities. Most other SUNY schools provide better preparation for the USMLE and residency."
