"The anatomy lab has a nice skylight. My student host was awesome and really cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer. He answered a call during the middle of the interview which took up like 30 minutes. That was really rude. When I asked him about volunteer/research/ec opportunities, he said, "you won't have time for that stuff because you're going to be studying all the time here." That completely turned me off of the school. Also, there are/were rumors about the Touro system buying NYMC. I wouldn't feel comfortable being at a school that would need to receive funding from a for-profit DO system." Report Response
