"Read my application/AMCAS and the school's website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Happy students, innovative curriculum, lots of technology integrated, school appears to be building a lot in the area, nice location. People will also try to tell you that Cornell students don't get a lot of exposure to "real" patients because of the school's location on the upper east side, but they have a preceptor program where students shadow physicians in all boroughs of NYC for four semesters, and your physician changes every semester. I also liked that it seemed they get out of class earlier." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really...I would miss having a more suburban-city setting but it IS NYC. Also, there seemed to be some hostility towards Columbia (and vice versa)--both schools just need to chill and start to get along for the love of god!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The preceptor program" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very laid back....just know your application and WHY Cornell is good for you, because you WILL be asked this" Report Response
