What impressed you positively?

"Everything. Everyone was very friendly, my interviewers were great, very thought provoking. I also really enjoyed the other applicants and the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Our student tour guides took every available opportunity to make negative comments on the ethics portion of the cirriculum. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That ethical questions are really no big deal. It is most important that you show that you have taken the time to think about ethical issues and to formulate opinions based on information from sound sources. There really is no need to prepare anything extra as the questions asked are on really hot topics, euthanasia, abortion, DNR, etc... that most educated people already know something about." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a really great time at Albany. I was very pleasantly surprised by my visit. Overall, I think that Albany is a great place for the right person, someone who is looking to become a physician and not a researcher. It was especially appealing to me because their focus is on treating patients and not on research. The faculty, administrators, and students that I met were very nice and enthusiastic. There seems to be a lot of focus on the students, they have a lot of opportunities." Report Response
