What impressed you negatively?

"I feel like the school is really deceptive. I was bothered that they hold the interviews on the New Brunswick campus, because there is a large chance that you may not spend any time there. They were very unclear about the fact that classes were on the Piscataway campus, and I feel like they held the interviews at the hospital in New Brunswick because they don't want you to know that the actual campus is in the middle of industrial park nowhere."

"Dr. Dickson was so great. She was really friendly, and all of the questions she asked me were really tied into the conversations that we were having. What I liked about her was I felt like she took the questions she had to ask, but really made them a part of our discussion, so I didn't feel bombarded or nervous." Report Response
