What impressed you negatively?

"The school's location: it's in the middle of nowhere, and NYC is about a 45 minute train ride away. There is nothing to do, and it seems like the students are really stressed and just study all the time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If I had known that it was in the boonies, I wouldn't even have bothered to go for my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I hated the school. I felt like the environment wasn't supportive or helpful, and the students seemed to me to be really stressed. A lot of them had not gotten in anywhere else, so NYMC was literally their only choice. If I had known about this earlier, I would not have gone to the interview. The interview itself was not that stellar, since the researcher kept asking me about my clinical experience (or lack thereof). All the interviewers also ask if there are any red flags on your application, and the interview is blind, which I wasn't too fond of." Report Response
