What impressed you positively?

"the rich suburban location that is nevertheless part of the New York Metropolitan Area. It is quite close to NYC (20 minutes rail accessible) yet offers a safe, relaxed, and beautiful scenery for the first two basic science years. It is quite a blend of the safety and beauty that a NYC suburb offers and also a short and easy travel down to the nation's media capital whenever one feels like having an adrenaline rush. The next two years of clinical rotations could well be spent in Manhattan where med students really need some patient interactions. The students were very friendly, diverse, and the facilities were very nice as well." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"New York Medical College is truly an awesome place! I love the fact that the first two years are spent in a rich (safer) NYC suburb 20 minutes from Yankee Stadium and 30 minutes from Manhattan, while the next two clinical rotation years are inside Manhattan. The excellent faculty, the HIGHEST board passing rate in New York State (yep better than Columbia, Cornell etc.), increased research funding, close to 1000 graduates currently serving on an American medical school faculty (18 department chairs), and its special dedication to training medical students as future practitioners (since it is purely a health sciences university) allow it to be a great fit for students who are interested in attending strong residency programs. New York Med is truly on the rise!" Report Response
