"Read over school's web page" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school's in a good neighborhood, with lots of things to do that appeal to students. Because the two main hospitals are so different (NYU Med Center is a well-known tertiary care center, while Bellevue is a famous [infamous?] public hospital), students can get all different sorts of experiences. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing at the school stuck out as being very bad. My interviewer mentioned that NYU is known for turning out specialists, not primary care, which may be a disadvantage to someone like me, who's really unsure about what she wants to do." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There was no introduction to the school. Interviewees just breezed in, had an interview, a tour, then left. That may have been because it was a Saturday." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First of all, any school with Saturday interviews gets a plus from me! I think my interviewer talked about twice as much as I did. We attended the same undergrad school, so we chatted about that for a while. I also talked about my research. The rest of the interview was pretty much him selling the school to me. The tour was good. The dorms seem pretty standard, but anything to avoid paying NYC rents is fine by me. The day seemed rushed, but that may have been because there wasn't as much waiting as at other schools, where you have 2 hours between the interview and tour with nothing to do. All of the students seemed nice and enthusiastic. Overall, good experience." Report Response
