"There seems to be a running theme of negative reviews for the speech pathology program. They are all correct. Very nasty professors who talk down to you and purposely try to overwhelm you. A couple of good ones but most are terrible people including the head of the program. Petty and arrogant."

"Please, please, please do not attend their speech pathology program. I agree with the Phillip and John (do not even know them), but will tell you I am still recovering from my experience there. There is so much pressure and favortism in this program. The mental breakdown and lack of support is ridiculous. I do not even know how this program is still standing. When I decided to leave it was almost as if it was expected by the staff, they had my processed my papers and sent them to the enrollment office. It was obvious that my extra support was an issue to the name of their program and they wanted me out. I even wrote a letter to the Dean of Schools and he never wrote back to me. This place is all about reputation. They want to be number #1 no matter at what price. There were like 2 good professors, but admin and the other professors were not helpful. I had to pay crazy amount of loan for a school/program that scarred me for life. Please do not make the same mistake I did, find a valuable program. This is not it."

"NYMC was an experience I will forever be grateful for. Most of the classes were amazing, and clinical experiences beginning first semester were so beneficial. Not quite sure about that "hazing" comment, but that was not my experience at all, nor did I witness anything like that. Focus on medical practices is just what I wanted, but there was no shortage of study in child language too. The externship placements are great."

"I recommend avoiding the speech pathology program. Students had a very hard time with the pressure and poor treatment by the faculty including the head of the department. There are definitely a couple of good professors but most are terrible. Go somewhere you where you will have a good experience. Not here."

"The graduate speech program was the worst experience of my life. They haze their students and treat them like garbage. In addition the professors were extremely incompetent. Do not go here. There are so many better programs in the area. That’s why so many students transferred out."

"The MPH program is designed for people already in full-time careers. I would not recommend this to young adults who want or need networking opportunities and new experiences. There are no career services available for students. Any opportunity you find will be on your own and in the NYC MTA it is VERY competitive and hard to do on your own. One of my professors told me that most alumni here don't find jobs for about a year or two after graduating and even then they get low pay and struggle for a while. Other schools offer intensive internship programs where you intern at a news site every semester. Here, you're left to your own devices to find a site and most of the time it is a half-a$$ed site just to meet the credits and graduate. American students then have to go out into the work force in the most competitive area and field and fight for a job against the people who went to schools that provided them opportunity for the amount they paid. I wish I had stuck with SUNY. Public schools provide much more bang for your buck with various and unlimited resources. I have found three internships looking high and low and still it is not enough to make it in this area. Professors eat their young in this program. I will actively advocate for younger students to go anywhere but this MPH program."

"Great facilities with diverse hospitals. There is an excellent match list that gets you where you want to go. Support from the administration can be difficult at times but accessibility is available when needed. Happy with my time here and loved living in New York City."

"It is challenging, but there are people to guide you along the way. You feel like part of a family, and you will get many opportunities for hands on experience on patients."

"New York Medical College is quiet and small. I always felt that the professors cared about me. Students are not so cut-throat so I learned a lot from their spirit of camaraderie."

"The faculty of the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences at New York Medical College have been absolutely outstanding in directing me to achieve my career goals. The professors care about what you are doing with your studies, how you are handling the curriculum, and what you can do to get help if needed. They have been nothing but supportive of my goals and reach out to me to see how I am doing along the way. The workload certainly keeps me on my toes but the value of the graduate program is impeccable."
