What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"My interviewer (co-chair of the admissions committee) told me that all interviewers are specifically instructed NOT to give the interviewees a hard time. They try to make the interview experience easy for the students, so there is no need to get too stressed before an interview at Albert Einstein! I was definitely given the impression that all interviews at their school are supposed to be very, very low stress. Any stress I felt was due to the fact that it was my first interview, and I felt it was a little strange that my interviewer was hardly asking me any questions." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I had somewhat of an unusual experience in that my interviewer did most of the talking and hardly asked me any questions during our 90 minute meeting. It was very conversational throughout. He took me on an unofficial tour of the school and hospital (though most interviewers will not do this) and gave me some feedback on my file. He was very nice and friendly and made me feel at ease immediately. He was a both a student and faculty member at Albert Einstein and seemed to love and be very proud of the school." Report Response
