What impressed you negatively?

"When I asked the tour guide what she didn't like about AMC, she gave a one-word answer: "Albany". I agree." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That admissions officers at AMC read this. So before you bash the school, make sure you don't put the day of your visit so they can't trace it back to you;-)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Because AMC is not integrated into a larger university, their entire academic mission is medical education, so all of their resources are devoted to teaching you, which is nice. Also, having the hospital for the campus means you have a lot of access to doctors and plenty of opportunities to shadow, etc. Conversely, it means that if you want to step out side for some fresh air, you're on the city streets of Albany, which leave much to be desired..."
