What impressed you positively?

"New labs and lecture halls, all the facilities are new so that's a plus, Harvey the cardiac simulator, i-stan, the area is vibrant and you are in the heart of the city!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Study areas seem cramped, small gym, cafeteria that doesn't serve food (only a few vending machines), there was NO official information on the curriculum or the timetables of 3rd and 4th year rotations (I had to get my information from the tour guides so I'm not sure if they covered all the points), only affiliated with 6 hospitals at the moment (none of which are in the Harlem community) for rotations. How are we supposed to know about the school if they don't talk at all about academics?? Obed's talk on how to impress the interviewers, it was unnecessary and I would have much rather heard about the curriculum and its offerings. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started at 9:10 with a 20 minute talk from Obed on Touro and what to expect/talk about in the interview. My interview was at 9:30 and was over by 9:50. There was a 10 minute talk on financial aid at 10:30. Tour of the facilities from 11-12. The dean of student affairs gave a brief 20 min talk about the school, he was very helpful. Obed then treated us to Silvia's (Famous for Soul Food)!! Overall, I was impressed by the school's facilities, but the rotation sites are severely lacking. I'm sure in the next 5 years tho, the rotation sites will be much better for the students." Report Response
