What impressed you positively?

"The small class size is great for one on one attention from professors. 1st and 2nd year students take classes with medical students. Tons of clinical work available for 3rd and 4th year students. Facilities are new, clean, and well run." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dont' get me wrong, but the school had a slight elitest attitude. The school is wonderful and I understand that they are trying to get the best students to attend their school, but they were slightly degrading of other schools. Living is about 2x to 3x more expensive than Buffalo or other schools in the region. " Report Response

"Traveling to and from the airport is expensive and the public transportation on Long Island is not that great." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The faculty was wonderful and uplifting. For the most part, it seems that this attitude is genuine. The clinics are top notch and probably some of the best in the country. The other students I interviewed with were really nice and we enjoyed discussing our interviews with each other. Be prepared, however, this school attracts some of the brighest minds, so don't be afraid of them...they don't bite." Report Response
