FYI: this is just a personal note, ladies please continue to dress appropriately for your interviews. 2. to shadow a little more in the field before my interview. that was the only thing I didn't have enough exposure to to be able to speak about. " Report Response

"Overall, no complaints. Nothing I haven't already known about the school facilities, staff, location, curriculum, etc. Everyone shared their perspective about NYCPM. It might be in a "scary ghetto" place, but I want a DPM from NYCPM, and nothing's going to stop me, if accepted." Report Response
