What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed enthusiastic. They all loved their experience there, and seem to be having a good time even with all the work. Hospital is really nice, and many opportunities seem to be available for the students. Interviews were chill and they're looking for reasons to accept you rather than reject you. The student housing is really nice and cheap for NYC. Quick access to rest of the city (the 6 stops right next to the school). Really nice location. Excellent match list. P/F grading, non-PBL centered curriculum, and NYC rules! " Report Response
