What impressed you positively?

"good match list (though I found this online, not at the interview), students seemed happy, very quick decision turn-around time. I also liked that even though Albany is so isolated, this can be a good thing in terms of AMC having in essence a monopoly over medical care in the area so students get to see great stuff and are not in competition with other nearby medical students/facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"high tuition. grading is based on a curve. It's Albany...it's cold, isolated, and there's not much to do when you would potentially have any free time. I thought it was probably the most run-down looking school I have interviewed at. Looked like an old, run-down high school that hasn't been renovated in 30 years. The only nice looking room in the whole building, the student lounge, has huge windows overlooking a bunch of brick walls/smoke stacks. Obviously the appearance is not a deal-breaker though." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You don't have to use all of the time allotted in each MMI station (you can leave the room early once you/interviewer feel there is a natural ending to the conversation and you have nothing left to say), which threw me off personally." Report Response
