What impressed you positively?

"staff, professors, students were very friendly and happy. lots of laughter! many students (even though they had an upcoming exam) chose to spend time to eat and chat with interviewees. i felt like i've known these people a long time, because they were so friendly and real. the extent of their Open Door Policy is unheard of; you can drop by anyone's office, including the Dean and always get time to discuss anything. they are like one big family." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"while the facilities were entirely new (they had just moved in a few weeks ago), they were the bare minimum. expect long halls of white tile, nothing else. clinical rotations have not all been set up. there are no 3rd or 4th year students yet (but that could be positive or negative depending on the individual)."

"exorbitant cost of traveling around the city. use the subway if possible." Report Response
