What impressed you positively?

"On the whole, I think Einstein is a terrific medical school. Many people have previously complained about the location but I do not think it is that bad. I did my undergraduate work at Stanford (believe me, Palo Alto is as rich as any community on this planet) and was not shocked/disappointed/scared/etc by the Bronx. I think as a medical student, the location is a great asset because you will see cases and patients that you will not see elsewhere. Einstein offers excellent clinical training and a good amount of research opportunities. The students seemed nice. The Pass/Fail grading is a big plus (real pass/fail, none of that H/HP/P/LP nonsense). Residency placement data were fantastic. In past years, people have done things like dermatology at columbia and head and neck surgery at mass general (some of the most competitive programs in the country). More importantly, Einstein's affiliated hospitals are well-regarded and provide the entire spectrum of medical services. And so, you can always get good training/do your residency at Montefiore if you desire. The student housing is great. And for 300/month a bargain you won't find anywhere else. Columbia puts its students up in closets and, I believe, charges more. At least this is the case with Bard Hall facility. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The on-campus gym could be better. It is decent, but the ones at big state-schools and private universities with good D1 athletic programs will be better (obviously). There is a New Yorks Sports Club nearby but that may be expensive. " Report Response
