What impressed you negatively?

"A lot! After asking some questions that my friends in medical school told me I should ask, I found out some things that really bother me. I asked students rather than the tourguides, because they are supposed to only tell you good things about the school, or at least neutral ones. So here's what concerns me: 1-They don't know what the cirriculum will be for next year. That worries me because med school is hard, and I want to know exactly how they're going to teach us. For this year, they are completely system based, which means they start out with a ''Fundamentals'' course, which according to the students was a MESS of whatever they felt you should know. There is only one exam per system, and then you have a re-test a week later. They said that 40 percent of the first year class failed the Fundamentals exam, and the same amount failed the neurology exam. That is a lot for me, and apparently the exam was not reflective of the material presented in class. It even contradicted some of it! To make that even more concerning, the students said that the only thing they're sure will change for next year is that they are getting rid of re-tests, so that means that you're dependent on one exam for 6 weeks of lecture. Doesn't seem fair. Especially if the exams aren't ''fair'' to begin with 2-The dean will only meet with students as a whole class in class meetings. There is no open dorr policy, and you can't make an apointment with him unless you are failing out. 3-They are supposed to post the slides on the internet for each lecture ahead of time, as well as have the printed handouts waiting for you in your mailbox, but unfortunately the students said that for the last system they haven't had the notes online or in the mailboxes until AFTER the lecture. It just seems like NYCOM makes a difficult experience even more difficult, as well as unorganized Also... the cost is insane!!" Report Response
