What impressed you positively?

"Everything was very new." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tourguide was constantly talking about "partying" and ran around with his head phones on... like some club kid who managed to get into medical school but isn't sure why. Given the fact that we'd all flown in from various places and were under time constraints to learn about the school, who CARES how much this guy parties? Every student he met in the hall, he'd ask if they were going to come partying with him and his friends. It was irritating and unprofessional. He was pretty knowledgeable about the school, but you had to pin him down to get much more than superficial info from him. The building is in a warehouse, next to an auto mall. "Las Vegas" per se (primarily the center of town and "The Strip") is a good 1/2 hour away, so calling it the "Las Vegas" campus is misleading. You might as well start calling the other campus "Touro-San Francisco" while you're at it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school-day seemed like another day of going to the office. Study rooms aren't sufficient to accomodate the current class, much less 2 classes at a time. They want to put PA's, optomitrists, and RN's in the same building, but pray tell where they all should park? Where the campus is, even though it's called "Las Vegas." How polluted the air was there, as the plane descended through a dense haze of tan/rust colored smog, I wondered how the asthmatics in LV were doing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I don't know if I would attend Touro "Las Vegas," I guess I'll see how my other interviews turn out. There are a lot of risks with going with a brand new school, and no one seems to address those during the day. It's like they're trying to distract you from looking at the entire picture and focusing on the highlights. For most of us, this is essentially a business decision, and we want the entire picture before laying out thousands of dollars to hold our seat if we're accepted. (Non refundable, BTW) The school is in the middle of the Mojave Desert... so if you like interminable shades of beige, brown, tan, and grey (including the sky, houses, and surrounding mountains and hills) you're going to love it. Or if you dig bars, strippers, and smoky casinos, you'll love it too." Report Response
