What impressed you negatively?

"Honestly, I think that establishing a school in Manhattan (especially harlem) makes it really difficult for any expansion to take place. The school has had 2 classes thus far and many among the first year had to retake Anatomy at a separate location. really i have my concerns about this school. the fee for the secondary application was more than any other school and the deposit required to secure a spot (when accepted) is $2k, non-refundable. anyway, not my favorite interview."
