What impressed you positively?

"The school had a great little campus, in a very nice area. The four medical school buildings are in a different area than the rest of the undergrad campus. The med school recently renovated their interiors, so everything is new and updated (very pleasing to the eye). They are affiliated with 46 Hospitals!! Students and Admissions Staff were extremely friendly! Provided interviewees with their school's catalog, which provided information on every aspect of the school possible (from tuition, to course descriptions, and hospital affiliations). " Report Response

"High price tag, but a lot of schools these days have tuitions in the 40k range." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would be sitting in the conference room with nothing to do for 2 hours prior to my interview. That the interview was literally going to be a conversation. It was great, I mean we talked about how the pond outside attracts geese for 5 minutes. That my interviewer would be so awesome!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I absolutely loved my experience here. It really made picking this school (if accepted) over my other choices a no-brainer. Their modern facilities, combined with TOP ROTATION choices in NY and 96-97% BOARD pass rates, make this school really one of the premier DO schools in the country. The students also said there is a great sense of school pride among their classmates, which is always good to hear!" Report Response
