What impressed you positively?

"Admissions staff seemed very friendly. Students seemed pretty friendly also. The campus is very well maintained and pretty in that brick, East-coast, kind of way. A lot of the buildings and facilities seem to be pretty new. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is nothing on the campus except for the med school really (like no undergrad or major graduate schools). Valhalla is only about half an hour from Manhattan, but it feels pretty far away. If people like quiet, pretty settings then this is for you. If you are from a big city and need that environment, this may not be for you. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There was a lot of down time for some reason." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day at New York Med was not stressful at all. There is a curriculum and financial aid overview, and then a student speaks to you. It is not super organized compared to other schools, but still good. There is a brief tour where they show you the housing, lecture halls, anatomy lab, etc. Since the interview is closed file, you just basically explain your application. For some reason, I didn't get the impression that the students are really happy there...but maybe I'm wrong! Not a stressful day at all!" Report Response
