SUNY it is, forgive a person watching a race from a back seat my girlfriend is getting into Downstate because of the BA/MD program in Brooklyn college... therefore, this is the only school that she can apply to (a minus) but she's guaranteed a place in there (a -big?- plus)...
The neighborhood is crappy though... been there... don't like the idea of her taking late busses but what is the alternative? She cannot drive to school everyday with the amount of sleep she will get... And I will be stuck somewhere in between Harvard-Cornell-Hopkins triangle... Four years road to fame and happiness starting next fall
I am glad to hear about curriculum and training... kinda knew this but yet, an independent opinion is very encouraging!
Sometimes two cents go the long way Thanks!

As someone who LIVES in Brooklyn, I want to make the point that Brooklyn is a huge Borough, and 3 million people live here.
Downstate happens to be in a poorer section of the borough, however there are some very nice, even upscale (gasp!) areas, along with the many middle class neighborhoods.
So dont speak in generalizations if you dont know what you are talking about.
