What are your general comments?

"Weill Cornell has a great location with strong facilities and resources to help students succeed (especially MD-PhD students and those interested in Ortho or Heme/Onc - will make it easier to match into HSS as a resident or MSKCC as a fellow). I was kinda put off by their admin/student body, but everything else about Weill is great." Report Response
