What are your general comments?

"I stayed over with a student host in the dorms, I really didn't have any trouble arranging that. Cathy was very helpful in setting it up. Also I wonder why anyone should feel guilty about choosing a program in New York - it seems to offer a wide variety of experiences for training. Seems like a good reason to choose a place. It does seem like other city schools do a good job of rotating through commmunity and borough hospitals as well. Cornell seems a little easier since classes are over in the early afternoon for the first two years. Anyway, good luck everyone!" Report Response
