What are your general comments?

"My interview went well -- it was very comfortable and conversational. The students who gave the tour were very nice, and the food was great. Einstein seems to give a good mix of everything; the affiliated hospitals are all very different, and there's a good balance of research and patient care. No lecture halls were shown, nor were any hospitals. There was an optional tour of the Children's Hospital at Montefiore, but it's the day before Thanksgiving, and most people wanted to get out of there! Maybe there could be some way to incorporate one of the nearby hospitals." Report Response
