What impressed you positively?

"Students were very relaxed and easy going. I was surprised that they didn't seem stressed at all. Unlike the kids in my undergrad! They stressed the importance and the difficulties of a good biomedical education during the first 2 years. They did stress that they encourage research. I liked that they were really upfront about these things and didn't give a sales pitch. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The neighborhood really isn't that bad. I'm a New Yorker and I know the ghetto when I see it. This is NOT a Ghetto!
