What impressed you positively?

"The dorms and prices!! The faculty and their enthusiasm, the first year lecture hall, the community service opportunities in NY" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"50% of the school is Jewish, which is a great opportunity for me to get to know a different religious group/culture, but it seemed a little too pervasive when I walked into the kosher cafeteria (the food was bland) and almost every guy was wearing a yamakah (sp?). I also saw strollers in the dorm, which reinforced how many students (mostly orthodox jews) were married and had families. Just very different from my current lifestyle." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Bronx is not a happy place, which I was expecting. I just didn't expect it to be as bleak and dead-looking as it did. It felt like I was riding a bus through a deserted 1950's neighborhood, and it was smack in the middle of the day, too. The medical facilities are all close together, though, so it's pretty safe and convenient. No good eateries nearby, though." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I'm really glad I visited - it was my top choice school from the logistics of the school, but it seemed a little depressing when I went there. I'm sure, though, that if I end up going, it'll be a great opportunity for me to grow as a person and physician, because the school offers some great research, cultural, and professional opportunities in the community, city, and abroad."
