What are your general comments?

"Robert Wood is a fantastic place. I was so impressed with the facilities. They all look like they've been built within the last 5 or 10 years. All the doctors I saw and spoke with were really positive and good natured. The Admissions staff was also very friendly and answered all my questions. The inteviewer was totally laid back and prefaced the inteview by saying that he didn't ask specific ethical questions cause he thought they were unfair. He was also very up front on the admissions process and how it worked. Totally relaxed atmosphere, but that was partially cause I had gotten accepted to my first school the day before, so I knew I was at least going somewhere. But, seriously, RWJMS is a fantastic place and I would definitely go there if accepted." Report Response
