What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities - having the feeling of being in a basement even when you know you're on the seventh floor. Shabby appearance overall. Dorms are terrible - for anyone who did NYU undergrad - it's like Weinstein singles but with communal bathrooms. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was very pleasant and the interview was relaxed and comfortable. I got the sense that she really understood what I wanted to emphasize in my application and we agreed on a number of points regarding education and medicine in general - it felt very much like a conversation. I have to say that while the interview itself went very well I wasn't impressed with the tour - one of the students who led it kept talking about how she does not enjoy doing a number of things (such as dissecting, studying with other people and living in the dorms... to the point that I wondered why she came to NYU or med school in general) Other than that, the facilities left me unimpressed. Bottom line is I wasn't sold on the school. " Report Response
