"SDN, NYU website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Clinical experience about the best you can get b/c no other school treats 250,000 patients/year!; Books are all on DVD, and lectures are recorded; No diessections in anatomy b/c the guy who plasticized cadavers for BODIES: THE EXHIBITION works at NYU and did the same thing for their cadavers; Actually have very good pt. 1 board scores over the last couple years and a LOW attrition rate; faculty are friendly (they sack the mean ones if students give bad reviews) and there is a good faculty to student ratio; despite the high number of students, the ones I talked to say that access to lab facilities or chair time is never a problem; students seem happy overall and recommended their school highly" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cost; Number of students and patients (though they handle the volume well)Many of the recently renovated facilities are reserved for clinical research or use by postdoctoral students pursuing specialty degrees; Other than that, no negatives. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Be wary of prior posts on SDN alluding to high attrition rates, low board passing rates, "mean" faculty, and unhappy students. From the information I was given, and from talking to and observing the students, these are all myths. If you are considering NYU, make sure you get a chance to visit the school to see if it would be a good fit for you, b/c it certainly isn't for everybody. If you need your hand held, you may get lost in the crowd. But if you're motivated, they have extra clinical and social opportunities out there for you to pursue " Report Response
