What impressed you positively?

"The anatomy lab was in tip top shape, state of the art. Great ventilation and very new. Possibly the best I've seen." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dr. Haight kept on talking about how Touro only invites qualified students and doesn't want to waste their money. However, the $2,000 deposit 2 weeks after acceptance is ridiculous. Also, he talked mostly about how good of a chance interviewers had in being accepted, much less was talked about board scores, matches, and financial aid. The school's location on Mare Island stinks, there is no source of food beside a tiny fruit shack. Campus is smaller than my high school, school library is a joke as was the gym. Only had what, one new lecture hall. While Vallejo is in the bay area, it is nothing like San Fransisco, the area is pretty stale. Without a car then you would be stuck in Mare Island without food, and the city of Vallejo is nothing to sing about. Furthermore, when entering Mare Island there is a warning sign about enter at own discretion, chemicals due to abandoned naval yard may cause health risks. The schools poor appearance, location, and overall lack of communication about academics make you wonder where they spend the money? On opening new schools like pharmacy? Lastly, the students I asked why they were there said that they were not accepted anywhere else. I think just the overall school will not be a pleasurable experience. It is a medical school in California. However, it is a shoddy one at the least." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Group interview did not allow for faculty to know the individual deeper. I was asked 4 questions only. And by the end, there was very little time to ask questions to the interviewers. " Report Response
