What impressed you positively?

"Happiness and warm reception of student body. The SNMA VP came to give me a tour of the school. Apparently it was her first time giving a tour but she was so thorough I had no idea it was her first time until she told me. After we came back to the waiting room in time for lunch all the interviewees convened into one meeting room to talk with the students. My interviewer, Mr. Wright, is a very nice gentleman and made me feel very comfortable during the interview. At NJmed you have the opportunity to have early clinical exposure and get involved with the community in various ways. Also the student body seems very diverse. NJmed undergoing a lot of new changes to its curriculum and its received alot of funding within the last year to open up a new institute for humanism. I think there's also some construction going on to build a new dental school and add on a new parking lot." Report Response
