What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To not go to the interview. My flight to Albany was cancelled when I got to Detroit for the transfer. I guess the snow was too bad. I had to fly to white plains and rent a car. I drove 3 hours in the blazing snow to albany. I got 3 hours of sleep before my interview. I'm under 25 so i had to pay the "my parents had sex 3 years too late" 110 dollar charge to rent the car. (obviously i'm upset with the whole experience)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"For people who want to get in and get an MD, and do family practice, Albany is great. For people who want to be in a larger institution that gets funding from NIH, Albany sucks. The faculty members didn't impress me. They were really friendly, but I could tell that I wouldn't be happy here. I heard one guy was a prick and grilled some of the other applicants on ethics.
