"question related to my work experience "
"why do you want to come to Columbia? "
"where else are you applying? "
"Nothing was really interesting"
"None were really difficult! "
"read sdn, interview feedback. browsed columbia's site. "
"quality of clincal experience seems awesome. love ny. "
"some students seemed a little immature. the location in washington heights sucked. on the way to the subway station i got stares and catcalls from random guys loitering the streets, and no i'm not *that* good looking :) "
"location in washington heights..."
"Very laid back interview. the day is very unstructured and they don't really do much to sell the school. some students dart in and out and talk about how much they love the school. one of the students seemed really cool. others kept talking about how they got wasted each weekend. dunno, i'm not really into all that anymore (even though, yes, it IS New York.) they didn't have any presentations, speeches by deans or organized tours. our tour guide was a very nervous student who seemed to be pretending to be someone he wasn't. my interview was truly laid back and started on a really positive note--the interviewer said she was "impressed" w/my file! i liked the school, but the location was a terrible problem. i don't know if i could handle that for 4 years.
