What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING!! This school is my first choice. I thoroughly loved the housing (best housing in terms of price and quality that I've seen yet from NY schools I've interviewed at), integrated curriculum, pass/fail grading, students all are very happy and geniunely express that they are not overly worked and stressed out. The school shows excellent residency placements while giving their students room to have a life outside of schoolwork to become their own people. I stayed with a student host, who was very nice and accomodating. The admissions officers really know your application and know who you are when you get there for the interview. I had a great time speaking with both of my interviewers and both gave me room to show myself rather than suffocating me with their ideas and thoughts. I finished my interviews feeling as though I really got to show MSSM who I am. The area is great. I personally am looking for a lively, vibrant environment to spend my Medical School years and MSSM is perfect for such an atmosphere. " Report Response
