What are your general comments?

"I was quite impressed with my visit to this school. The 4th year student (Dina, I believe her name was) gave a dynamite talk and shared her very honest opinions of the school (a rare exerience, based on my visits to other schools). My interviewer was extremely considerate and made a sincere effort to review what little info he had about me before actually meeting me. The facilities are really top notch and the vast range of hospital affiliates seems to give the students the ability to tailor their rotations and electives to their specific interests/objectives. I really like the fact that NYMC is tucked into this larger medical complex rather than some conglomerate research university. Clinical education clearly takes a front seat to research at NYMC, and I know that that's a turn-off for some. But, definitely not for me. Apparently, ~50% of interviewees are ultimately accepted, so I'm hoping for the best! All in all, wonderful experience!" Report Response
