What impressed you positively?

"The tenor of the school really shown through when there were about 20 students from all different years who showed up to talk to us and answer our questions during lunch. The tour was also given by a first year, a 2nd and a third and i really felt I got a good feel for the school based on their down-to-earth approach to why they chose Cornell. The facility were bar none. Nice 24inch flat sreen monitors, Plasma screen tv's in a beautifully new anatomy lab. Awesome hospital too (very new) with lots of other different choices in the network (I think someone mentioned Lincoln in the South Bronx is esp. busy). The thing that really impressed me most was the quality of the people (and age: many older students) I met there, and I think they really try to make it a system where everyone tries to work together versus look out for themselves.
