What are your general comments?

"This school is my first choice for a number of reasons, and I'm from the area, my family is nearby, and the tuition would be half that of any private school, so I'm biased. But SUNY Upstate strikes me as good as any school I've been to, including top schools in major metropolitan areas, and crouse is a great hospital where one would get an enormous diversity of experience. Nothing really gave me pause about my visit." Report Response
