At the school
"tell me more about your psych research"
"how'd you like your undergrad?"
"What do you desire in a medical school environment?"
"nothing tough... i was questioned about past research, but not interrogation-style or anything."
"Columbia brochure, self-practice with interview questions from SDN, reviewed application"
"New York is a happening place to be no doubt. Also was impressed when I was told by my faculty interviewer that Columbia was #1 in the country for highest Board Exam scores. Never heard that before."
"Bard Hall wasnt nasty as many folks report, but I hear many dorm residents occasionally have a tough time finding a meal. Students were very UNenthusiastic about their student experience (perhaps, hopefully, because on the brink of an exam week). No free printing!?!?!?! P&S really didn't appear to offer anything outstandingly unique for the students to speak highly of--much of the students positive comments revolved around either Columbia's IVY repututation (but is P&S reputation THAT distinguished compared to other top med schools?), or it's NYC location. "
"That Cornell had an 5-year MPH program with Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health. "
"Students had more complaints about quality of life @ P&S than positive comments. Students appeared to struggle in selling their own school(not much good to say)! From what I gained, the big reason to attend Columbia....it's a flashy-name school (duh!) in New York (duh!). Didn't walk away with much more than that."
