What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are all new and very clean. Literally everyone I met was sweet as sugar, including the car rental guys- not what I was expecting for a weathier suburb of NYC. The Children's hospital is amazing, the campus is compact, easy to navigate, and seems like a real community. Parking for all students, including commuters, is free. Great security, saw many even during the daytime. There are so many options for things to do outside of school time: 30 min from NYC, 6 min from White Plains which has all the basics you could ever ask for, less congestion and noise than what would be found in downtown urban area, beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities and opportunities. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The on-campus student housing. I checked out other options while in the area, and for a bit more a month you can have a very nice place that would allow pets. Library is not open 24 hrs (I like to study in the library). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really blown away by NYMC. I have heard some not-so-enthusiastic things about the school, mostly here on SDN, but I really didnt find too many of them to be warranted. I was there during exams, and people still stopped and talked just walking down the hallways. Everyone is super friendly, many would stop and chat on their way to wherever they were going. I loved the community feel that the campus radiates, and the facilities are all you could ask for! They also offer great opportunities for getting a combined MD/MPH or MD/PhD, which you dont have to apply for off the bat but can wait and apply any time before the end of your second year. I hope I get an acceptance, because I see myself as a great fit there!" Report Response
