What are your general comments?

"Interview was short, one professor and one 4th year student. I got an acceptance letter in 3 days. I declined it simply because I didn't like the location of the school AND the fact that the school is so SMALL (95 students in the class). Kennedy system is too small plus they don't have residency programs for the speciality I was looking for. I know that NYCOM is a much better school (I was accepted there as well) simply because of the location and the clinical affliations of NYCOM. Their students consistently get the best specialties and are not limited to just primary care/family practice as most DO schools as UMDNJ-SOM." Report Response
