"You're definitely not in NYC here, and don't let people tell you its just 15 mins away. If you're taking the train, count on your trip being over an hour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The usual suspects - school overview, tour, financial aid talk, interview (though not in that order). As I had heard before, the facilities at NYMC are very nice. The staff and all the faculty members that I met were very nice, as were the students. However, the students reminded me of the premeds who probably had decent credentials (bio major, hospital volunteer, a little research, etc.) but not a whole lot else. Bear in mind that I only met about a dozen of them, so maybe I got a bad sample. I left positively impressed by the experience because it beat my expectations." Report Response
