What impressed you positively?

"I enjoyed talking to the students who gave us a tour of the school. They seemed upbeat and really excited about osteopathic medicine." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"For starters, the admissions office was pretty disorganized. The associate director really didn't want to talk because she was sick. Then we were informed that a representative from the financial aid would not be talking to us - so instead we were given a large packet of handouts. In addition, they only had one doctor to interview that day so they were scrambling to find a second doctor to interview. The campus is two small buildings, and the library is very small. Even though all students are required to get their own computer, the computer lab in the NYCOM library was done away with. There was a lot of waiting time - bring something to read." Report Response
