What impressed you positively?

"The attitude of the students, and the huge hospital system. THE FUNDING...YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT AND GET PAID FOR IT! The cheap rent for APARTMENTS (not dorms). " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It's located in the Bronx so not really Manhattan style. If you are familiar with any other borough than Manhattan, you'll know what I'm talking about. The school is older, but a good med school is based on the latest gadgets...its based on the faculty and the students (which seem great). However, everything taken together I would still love to go to this school. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"So, everyone ahead of time tells you about all the Jewish people who go there and how its uncomfortable and the food is bad. Well, that was not my experience at all. I think if you are a half-way open person, you'll get over the school being closed on Saturdays in a heartbeat. The students are really nice, and only a small percentage of students are orthodox. If you are another religion you'll only feel weird if you generally don't like being around people that are different from you. The food was good too. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved this school. I thought I was going to hate it. In fact, I was telling my mom I don't even know why I applied to AECOM, because I already know I'm going to hate it!!! It went from being number 6 on the list of schools I had interviews at to number 1 or 2. Seriously. " Report Response
