What impressed you positively?

"Nice facilities, huge hospital, new and airy anatomy lab, overall community feel. A NYMC graduate doing his residency there talked about the school, he gave excellent advice and explained why he liked NYMC, it was pretty convincing. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students seemed extremely stressed and borderline suicidal, apparently they had an exam that day. During the financial aid talk, the guy told us to think of it ''as an investment'', great advice and reflective of the school's high tuition." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"NYMC is not (or is no longer) a primary care medical school, dont cite that as a reason for why you want to go there. If you're driving there, take some extra time, I got lost in the country side." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was impressed with the school. After the experience, I feel like NYMC gets an unfairly bad rep from some people. The interviewer was a PhD who asked interesting questions and seemed like he really wanted to get to know me. I left with the feeling that I'd get a good education here. That being said, the students were definitely more stressed out than in other places and the place is really out in the country side. You can spend the last two years in New York City for the clinical rotations, so its not that bad. I can see myself going here." Report Response
