What are your general comments?

"AMAZING! Interviewed at several top/prestigious schools, and there's really only one school I would choose over Sinai. Loved the student body - extremely down to Earth, dorms are $530 a month on the Upper East Side - insannnnnnnne!!! Loved the community feel, in that they are really the keystone of East Harlem, unlike other med schools, which sometimes seem to feel separated from the community they serve. Also great for research - it pretty much has it all, and I loved it!" Report Response
