What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Have snacks while waiting for interviews or immediately after. We were starving until lunch. Student ambassadors didn't really seem happy about going there. When asked why Nova? He basically said he got in 6 plans but came for the weather and it didn't matter where you went to medical school as long as it's accredited. The facilities were not impressive. For that tutition iPads should be be provided. I got the sense that clinical volunteer opportunities abroad were just resume boosters especially since in the Dominican republic students stay at a 5 star sandals results because it's the only place the school deems safe. Cost way too much. I would be able to sleep owing almost 400 k. Dont like 2 years essentially have a midterm and final. Don't like exam rooms used to practice and test patient encounters have rooms were some of the sinks work and some don't that hasn't been fixed. Area where school is located is very crowded. Too much traffic." Report Response
