What are your general comments?

"Overall good. I really enjoyed talking with the student tourguides and my especially my interviewer about the school. I can tell they genuinely like being at Downstate. The cons are that the school doesn't get enough funding for nice renovations like other schools, but the fact that the clinical experiences at the renowned hospitals are so worthwhile: students get much responsibility in the 3rd and 4th years so they enter residency feeling independent and confident. Interview was conversational and not at all stressful. My interviewer mentioned that the school is concerned about students adjusting to city life." Report Response
