What impressed you negatively?

"Location is super isolated (just around trees), all the students felt like they needed an excuse as to why they ended up there (clearly it didn't seem like it was their top choice, but ended up there anyway), I felt as if it was a boarding school for high schoolers: tiny cafeteria with not many options, dorm living right across the street that ~80% of the students stay at, takes a ton of time to get to NYC via public transport" Report Response

"I really wouldn't recommend this college. It didn't have a good atmosphere (despite the amazing weather they had today), the students seemed really depressed (not that they aren't at most med schools), but they didn't seem to be happy to be there, while I've seen amazing students with amazing enthusiasm at other schools at which I've interviewed" Report Response
