What impressed you positively?

"The school is constantly revamping their curriculum so that it provides what students actually want. The faculty seem like they are truly concerned with how the students do on the boards and getting into residencies (and it shows). Students seemed happy. Lots to do in New Brunswick and other stuff related to Rutgers. Interviewer was extremely smart and chill. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The first-years have lecture in the same room all year. The library is VERY small - pretty much the size of a classroom (they have access to the big biomed library at Rutgers too though). No housing on campus, so pretty much everyone has some sort of commute. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great school for the value. Some people are turned off by it because it is VERY suburban, but it's super easy to get to the city....and let's face it - you're going to be studying most of the time. You can see how the school keeps the tuition low by cutting down on the non-essentials (for example, you have to pay for the gym)." Report Response
