What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing was really interesting, just standard med school interview stuff." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The setup was an mini-MMI so each interviewee was given two ethics questions. One of them was a little hard to answer. Can't give more specifics but brushing up on ethics would be a good idea." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Just re-read my application and tried to relax. I also read up a little on the school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything. I was especially impressed by the dorms (and how low-cost they were considering the amount of space you get and the crazy rent costs of the area) and Bellevue Hospital. The medical students who spoke with us seemed really confident and independent and attributed that to the training they received at NYU." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Almost nothing. The price tag on the school is definitely hefty but I think that's mostly unavoidable if you're planning to go to medical school anyway, and the tuition cost is lower than some of the other schools in the city with equal or better financial aid. The students seemed to have a work-hard-play-hard type of attitude which was really impressive but also a little scary for me since my life policy is mostly work-hard-play-rarely. :P" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known to bring an umbrella! It was raining that day and I got soaked." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was so impressed by this school. Everyone was super friendly. I came in with a huge lack of interest in this school having applied a little half-heartedly, but when I saw the school, was told about the curriculum and clinical training, and received feedback from med students, I realized this school is a gem in the NYC med school scene and anyone would be lucky to attend."
