What impressed you positively?

"The campus itself--the classroom buildings and anatomy lab are absolutely gorgeous. I mean, the anat lab has hanging plants and huge glass windowns in it for crying out loud. where else can you find that? the student housing is also very nice and much cheaper than anything off campus. the apts are literally steps from classes, and apparently almost everyone who wants housing gets it. I also like the location, so convinient to the city w/o having to deal with the hassle of living there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I think it might feel a little claustrophobic living with all the same people and going to class with all the same people, esp b/c the campus is very small. it's only a grad school so the student pop is very tiny, esp for me coming from a big state school. tuition is also very high here as is the cost of living. and it's clearly a second tier school. a lot of the people i talked to said it was the only place they got it in but then again, they have much higher than average board scores, so obviously they teach and prepare you very well." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"fly into the white plains airport if you can. i'd say it's worth the extra money. bring cash for cabs and definitely do the student hosting program." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was really a pretty laid back day. You get a nice breakfast, interview, tour, then lunch and the day is over. The school is definitely unique in not being attached to an undergrad institution, which could be an advantage or disadvantage depending on how you look at it." Report Response
