What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything. The school's facilities are absolutely amazing, as is the entire campus. All of the students seemed to be in a very good mood. The dean, Dr. Silvagni, is absolutely amazing and gave the best speech about a doctor's duty and role in society I have ever heard. Also, Nova has a very structured and well planned out review to help prepare students for the COMLEX. Also, no issues setting up 3rd year rotations, as the school is affiliated with all 13 of the core sites and they are set up for you, even though you may not get your first choice it is usually in your top 3."
