"NYUSOM puts you in the middle of New York City and gives you lots of opportunities to meet doctors at many stages of their careers, new people, and gain new experiences. But it also leaves a lot up to the independent student and doesn't necessarily offer a lot of support freely. It is also a fairly competitive environment."

"NYU is a fun school in the best location compared to all the other medical schools in New York City. The faculty really care about teaching and do a good job with the curriculum. Whatever it is you want to do in the field of medicine, you can find that opportunity here at NYU. It tends to attract a younger student population and there are many social events. For students who know what career path within medicine they would like to pursue, the three year MD pathway is an incredible opportunity."

"Pros: Great curriculum with lots of early clinical exposure, great teaching facilities, taking Step 1 after the clinical year, great location, friendly students and very accessible faculty Cons: Sometimes the curriculum moves a little too fast (but secretly this is a pro), there have been some IT problems but those have usually been resolved on time"

"Pros: - EXCELLENT clinical training in a wide range of settings - even at the beginning of my fourth year, I felt I was already at the equivalent level of an intern (and my evaluations from my sub-I reflected that). - Student-friendly neighborhood with lots of restaurants, convenient 24-hr shops, nearby public transport - Affordable (and nice!) student housing close to hospitals - dozens of clubs and student activities e.g. formal every semester, ski trip, etc. - P/F first 18 months makes students more cooperative than competitive, but during rotations it can get touchy Cons: - NYU is undoubtedly expensive. Financial aid is basically all loans unless you get a merit scholarship (but it's great that we even have those at all) - C21 curriculum is still kind of in testing/improving mode, but at least the administration are super-responsive to student feedback"

"I have truly loved my experience at NYU med so far. The fact that everything is pass fail is great and has allowed me to have a life outside of medical school. The workload is challenging yet manageable and everyone truly does work together and wants to see each other succeed, while still striving to do their best. The absolute best thing about NYU is our awesome location in NYC and our close proximity to so many great neighborhoods."

"NYU is a great medical school where you can really focus on tailoring your education to your own personal needs and future career. The early pass/fail curriculum allows students to get involved outside the classroom. There is very early hands-on patient contact that makes you comfortable as soon as you hit the wards. The C21 curriculum allows flexibility for the student to have experiences that most curriculums would not. From extra electives to 6 months of research, your opportunities for fourth year are endless. I highly recommend this medical school."

"Pros: Excellent clinical experience at multiple hospitals so you get to see many different patient populations and become familiar with different EMR systems. Faculty very encouraging and responsive to students. Student dorms subsidized so extremely affordable for this neighborhood. 18-month curriculum allows for great flexibility (e.g. listening to lectures in your room at 2X speed) and has extra time for electives/research compared to traditional 2-2 programs. Pass/Fail first 18 months so classmates send out a lot of study guides and help. Many clubs and school-wide social events (e.g. formal ball, ski trip) Cons: Financial aid mostly loans unless you get a merit scholarship, but counselors are very helpful in answering questions and helping look for outside scholarships too."
