What impressed you positively?

"I had very little expectation for this school, but by the end of the day I was really impressed with it. The facilities are really nice, and the students that I met seemed really comfortable and happy where they were. I was initially turned off by the idea of dorms, but the students seem to see it as a great way to develop a community, and it seems like it helps people concentrate to have everyone around them doing the same thing. The other thing I was nervous about was I thought that maybe the opportunities to do your rotations in Manhattan were limited, but all of the staff and students said that if you want to, you can. I enjoyed how the day was very self-organized. I was able to sit in on a lecture, and I felt like I could roam around the school and get the informal sense of what it would be like to go there.
