What are your general comments?

"I did not know what to expect from Sinai and came away simply amazed. Everyone, the students, interviewers, admissions staff, is incredibly warm and helpful. The students who came in during the day had a lot of interesting things to say and did not give off a sense of pretense as I noticed at other interviews. The 2 3rd-year students who had lunch with us and gave us the tour of the hospital/clinic/simulation room were really engaging and honest. The anatomy lab is incredible and the simulation and standard patient rooms were equally impressive. There's a strong sense of community and cooperation at Sinai, which helps when in a huge city."
