What impressed you positively?

"Admission staff is amazing, they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. By far the friendliest I've encountered thus far. The tour guides were excellent, they knew the school inside out and offered us their contact info. The clinical experience would be superb, and housing is not as big an issue as I thought. Cafateria food is actually decent. Students seem cool. They know how to work hard AND play hard. The school is expanding." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cafateria is burried in a corridor without being labelled. NO AFFILIATD FREE GYM!!!! Oh well, I have to pay for my membership :( Newark is not the nicest place to live but it has it's decent locations. The taxi driver didn't know how to get there! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day went very well. I arrived on time for an early interview, which lasted about an hour. The interviewer and I clicked on many levels; she is definetely someone I'd keep in touch with during my years there if (when!) I get accepted. The admissions staff is a great group of people. I had 2 hours in between my interview and the tour, so I went to the library (very nice) and had lunch with 2 other applicants. The tour was given by two very knowledgable students, who will surely be 2 of my good pals during school! I look forward to matriculating; I am confident that I will be accepted. " Report Response
