What impressed you negatively?

"There are lots of hospitals in the Bronx area that are affiliated with Albert Einstein. They have an interest in creating a diverse class of students, but there are many orthodox jews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, a nice day. I wish the interview went better because the doctor I interviewed with really didn't ask me questions. She talked about her experiences and the experiences of people she knew. But seeing that she only had 5 minutes to review my file, I guess that makes sense. The students were great. I enjoyed speaking to them and I think they were honest." Report Response
