What impressed you positively?

"Touro has an MPH-DO program which sounds interesting, but since its a newer program it does have some accreditation issues which might prevent you from getting a few jobs(mainly government jobs). Overall student's seemed happy and friendly. I thought the faculty and staff were also friendly throughout the day. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The entire interview day felt unorganized and they did very little to try and impress me about their school. The scheduled presenters such as the Director of Admissions and Financial Aid person were all unavailable durign our interview day. We spent most of the time discussing the MPH-DO program and then they showed us their research facilities, while trying to scramble and get some students to take us on a tour. Very little was discussed about their new curriculum for next year and people didn't seem to know much about. People in my interview group kept asking questions about the new curriculum and everyone always got a very general response. The school is also in a pretty run down old shipping yard.
