How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The students we met were extremely passionate and engaged. They really seemed like people who would challenge and inspire me. The DPC curriculum was stressed. It's rigor both impressed and scared me. The clinical rotations and hospital connections appeared to be very strong. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It is impossible to live within walking distance and there is no public transportation or shuttle. The prospect of driving everyday is not exciting (I don't own a car yet!). The facilities were sort of middle of the road compared to others I have seen. The price tag is very high." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be a snowstorm!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my time at NYCOM. Because of the high cost of tuition and living/ commuting situation I was hoping I wouldn't like it as much as I did.
