What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"What other schools are your top choices and why? (I think the question that should have been asked is "what are you looking for in a medical school and why?")" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"If you don't get into medical school, what will you do? (I know this is a standard question, but for some reason, once asked, I felt offended.)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Questions specific to my application." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"My interviewer put me on the spot a few times, challenging some parts of my application, which was fine, but it was done with a bit on a confrontational tone." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Bellevue. New York City. The students seemed to really like NYU, and the school throws a lot of money at them to do just about anything, from research to travel to throwing open bar parties after tests. I was impressed by the interviewer's knowledge of a high level of detail in my file." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I really did not like NYU. I won't rant on about it, because I think it was just a gut feeling about the school all around. When asked why the students like NYU, almost all of them talked about how unstressed they are and how much they get to party, which is nice, but it gave me the impression that the students use the P/F system to party it up. I was not impressed by the facilities or the dorm, or the somewhat confrontational attitude of my interviewer." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I don't want to go there. It's a good school, but not for me. If you want to live in NYC, get a good education, and party it up while you're in med school, this is your place. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We went on a tour, which included the anatomy lab, classrooms, and study areas, but not the dorm or hospital. Lunch followed and then a one-on-one interview." Report Response
