What are your general comments?

"NYU is the easiest school to get into but hardest to stay in. While talking to currently enrooled dental students, I got the impression that the faculty members are more interested in failing students than teaching dentistry. They also told me that the exams are so difficult that 50~70 students fail the science course exams. No matter how hard you study, they'll kick out as many as 50 students each year to make more room for AP students. Even a friend of mine who just started NYU told me NYU should be my back up school as shcool is known for dropping students. " Report Response
