What impressed you negatively?

"the tour was so werid. i spent who knows how long learning about how there's a security guard but he's not needed, and details like mail delivery in the on-campus housing. at easch location, instead of just looking in, we stopped and even sat down to have a long talk about it. weird." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that it was so expensive to travel to and from the city by trains, and that the catholic church has influence over the school to the point that they can't call their gay club a gay club, they have to call it student of every orientation or something like that. i learned that religion and medical school don't mix..."

What are your general comments?

"it's true that it is no one's first choice. it was very strange that every student i met immediately told me that ny med was not their first choice, but that they've been reasonably happy. the whole day basically repeated this theme. as i said, the tour was loooooong. when we got to the lecture hall, the tour guides directed us to have a seat and each talked at length about the lectures and their experiences and the scribe service, etc. sorry to go on about the tour, but it was really strange to get all kinds of details that really don't mean much when you are choosing a medical school. i mean, it's nice to hear about parking and see the facilities, but i didn't learn anything interesting except that there is way to much lecture time and it costs a bundle to access the notes in case you don't go to every lecture."
