What impressed you positively?

"Unlike some of the other feedback, the people at NYMC really impressed me. Everyone was incredibly helpful, and the second years seemed really relaxed. Can't speak for the first years, however, since they were taking a test. Also, I like the rural feel of the campus. Lots of open space. Also the facilities were pretty nice. Check out the Children's Hospital if you have the chance its pretty impressive." Report Response
