What impressed you positively?

"pretty much everything. the three major things i didnt like were: 1) pretty much no problem-based learning 2) sinai hospital is private (im very interested in public hospitals)....they have a lot of public affiliates, but their main hosp is private 3) their md/mph program is crammed into four years. this might be good for some people, but im concerned that it will diminish the quality of both degrees (you have to cut your clinical electives to take mph courses)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"they have the best housing of any school ive been to yet. definitely the best of all the nyc schools. beautiful 4 or 6 person apts (with 2 and 3 bathrooms respectively) that are guaranteed for all four years. some are two floors and even have their own terraces. two blocks from central park. and only $550/month! (which for you non-new yorkers is super super cheap for that neighborhood)" Report Response
