  1. Medical Student
    Hello All!

    I am a grad student doing a research paper about admissions practices in US-based medical programs ... I've already contacted a bunch of schools, so I figured I'd go ahead and contact the Sackler kids since you're a NY-charter program and regularly place into great residencies in that area.

    please find a quick 10 question survey - which you can fill out from your own experience regarding getting into Sackler and your time there. Please be honest, and this is JUST for a research paper - nothing will be published. It will just be graded by a professor, or possibly a miserable Doctoral student.
