What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was extremely attentive, took notes, and asked follow up questions. He seemed to care about what I had to say and was genuinely interested in getting to know me. The medical teaching building is in great shape and the anatomy lab is the best I've seen so far being on the top floor of the building with abundant skylights. My interviewer as well as the staff made me feel NYMC cares deeply about its students. Check out the brand new Children's Hospital. For kids and baseball fans (as well as sick patients) it is a true treat. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students. One second year tour guide seemed like he stepped straight out of a frat party apathetically describing the med. school. Many of his discriptions included words such as "dude, crap, shit" etc. He didn't seem to respect or take his medical education seriously. I also talked to students at lunch who seemed somewhat distant and not too excited about NYMC...however, it was only three days before one of their finals. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I knew more about the housing as basically all students live in the dorms on campus. Also, NYMC is a fairly isolated campus. I car will be required. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was very informative; both with what it had to offer as well as some of its drawbacks. I would absolutely recommend visiting as it is a unique campus; somewhat isolated, congenial, yet only 45 min. from NYC. " Report Response
