What impressed you positively?

"Lot of money in the school (really old lecture halls, but the rest of a facilities are new: brand new Public Health building, Stem Cell research center, etc). Plenty of computer labs, study areas, etc. Very good camraderie among the students. Everyone seems ready to help each other out. Low competition according to the tour guides. Faculty seems very supportive towards students. They like to push the dual degree programs; you can get scholarships towards the MPH, JD or MBA part of your degree. Excellent Residency match stats." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It's a high school! They have cliques of geeks, cool kids, and jocks. Only difference, everyone seems genuinely nice to each other. The class is relatively young, and it seems like a lot of them went to med school b/c their parents made them. I got the impression few of them have ever spent a day working in their entire lives. Bummer for non-trad applicants who won't have much in common with classmates. No real patient contact the first two years, just actors. Also, they only have two hospitals where you can do your rotations." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Rotation choices are limited: RWJ in New Brunswick or Cooper Hospital in Camden." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Had to wait 20 minutes b/c my interviewer forgot the appointment. But otherwise, he was really nice, no difficult questions. I was impressed that he knew my application thoroughly! He even memorized the names of the people who wrote my recommendations and asked details about my work with each them. Asked a lot of ethics questions, and wanted to really get to know my personality." Report Response
