What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was great. She had this feminist vibe to her and I asked her about how hard is it to be a female in medicine while managing a family and a career. Needless to say, we really bonded over that question. Overall, i really liked the facilities. The building was built in 2001 so everything is spanking new (the anatomy lab was gorgeous). The staff was really inviting and friendly. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only complaint are the directions to the school. I traveled via car from the upper west side and we got really lost once we got to Valhalla (The admissions office officially opens at 9am, so you won't get any help from them). The directions aren't exact - so make sure you know where you are going." Report Response
