What impressed you positively?

"State of the art medical education building, beautiful campus with lots of trees. Stay with a student host! Then you get to see how student housing is like. Many students spend their 3rd and 4th years doing clinical rotations in Manhattan. I spoke to my first year tour guide and she said she knows a few people who live in manhattan and reverse commute to school every day/every other day. Podcasts help." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The whole place had a very undergrad/collegiate feel to it. It was very insular, even though it's only 40 minutes away from NYC. There is no life there besides the students at the college." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with a faculty member, and then a 4th year. They both had a checklist sheet in front of them and went down asking the same questions. They both wrote down every single thing I said, which was a bit unnerving. The worst part was when they both asked "What did you do the summer after freshman year, the summer after sophomore, junior years?"" Report Response
