"SDN. Reviewed NJMS brochure and website. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Clinical experience received, hands down. NJMS has become a model for many other schools in terms of providing the clinical skills necessary to pass the boards (since they're adding a clinical skills assessment). In addition, the students seemed pretty happy, had great things to say about the school, and interacted well with the faculty. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No formal admissions/financial aid presentation was given by admissions staff (you just have to look it up online). However, the information given by the faculty and students there more than made up for this small bit. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the school would impress me as much as it did; that NJ transit is pretty efficient in getting you where you need to go (a matter of personal opinion). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a pretty god day. I got to the interview way too early, but got a chance to talk to the other applicants. After a brief interview, I was given a voucher for lunch in he cafeteria (a great chance to see the diversity of NJMS). One of the interviewers joined us, and so did a few students, so we got a great opportunity to hear more about the nitty gritty of the school. Then, two first years escorted us on a tour of the facilities. We ended the day with an evaluation, and we were done by about 2:30PM. " Report Response
