What impressed you positively?

"The fact that my interview was more of a conversation rather than a Q&A. Comlex 1 scores, OMM instructor spoke to us and gave us an informative demonstration. Dean of the campus and other assistant deans came to speak with and they were very open about themselves and their school. They also had breakfast and a pretty decent lunch. Faculty and students were pretty friendly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Facility was a bit of a major issue for me: it’s one building that’s a bit rundown outside, it’s pretty dull inside as well. Gym and cafeteria is small as well as the library compared to other schools. Tour would have been better if given by student instead of administration. Grades are based on a Z scale where the average class score is compared to the previous 3 classes and their standard deviation defines your grade (I’m used to pass/fail grades so this is... different)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"N/A" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Parking is a pain, school is on W 124th st, not W 125th. School uses the flipped teaching method where you watch videos outside of class then you go to lecture and review the content if necessary. Like undergrad they use clicker questions to see if you understand and yes they graded and lecture is mandatory but it’s 3-4 days a week." Report Response
