The mission of this school stems from from a longstanding tradition of engaging with the community. The school was founded by physicians who wanted to provide healthcare to the struggling immigrant population of Brooklyn, and this identity propels the work they do today. The school prides itself of diversity and cultural competency, and prepares students to give back in their work.

I love Downstate! Pros: 1)New York City! 2)The faculty are super accessible and always willing to lend an ear. 3) The atmosphere is relaxed and encourages cooperation. Cons: There isn't a LOT to do in the immediate surrounding area, but you could easily take the subway or bus to really anywhere in NYC!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The sense of community is incredible. Students are always ready to help each other with whatever problems they encounter because we, students, are all going through the same experience for the most part. Professors also are ready to aid students, and often very late at night. I do not regret my choice. However, the con is that there aren't many scholarships that are offered, and the cost of living on campus is high.

Pros: Learn very much about Public Health and how to administer real health aide to communities of color and poor. People are very nice, friendly, and above all down to earth hard working people. Cons: None
