What are your general comments?

"AMC gets a bad rap on SDN, possibly because of the population of SDNers. Albany's no great city, but there are two great cities w/in a 3hr drive (NYC and Boston), and lots of outdoor activities. The interview atmosphere was intense but not stressful. I talked to about 15 current students, from 1st-4th year, and they all love AMC. Some even chose it over ''higher ranked'' schools and are glad they did. Overall, it was a good experience." Report Response
