Why you decided to come to our program: During my interview at Upstate, I was surprised by how friendly and happy the residents and staff were! It seemed that everyone I met was committed to the education of residents and I knew this was the place I would be most successful and prepared. Also, I loved Upstate, New York while at college, so I knew right away Syracuse would be perfect for me.
