What was the most interesting question?

"Give me an example of one of those ethical situations(I had said that while shadowing a doc I came upon some). So basically I brought up the ethics on my own." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Do you have any questions? I know it's good to ask questions but man, I didn't really have any--by the time my interview rolled around I knew more about the school than I did my own undergrad campus! Basically all the questions I was asked came straight from my application. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this website, their website, read my app, asked my student host some questions about the day, and learned from this mistakes made from my previous interviews." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Students are really nice, it's not that far away from Manhattan(I took the subway in from JFK and it took about 2 hours from start to finish) but really if you catch the bus and trains at the right time you can get into Manhattan(downtown) in decent time. Also the Pass/Fail grading system of 65% during the first 2 years. That really takes the pressure off; the 8 or so hospital affiliations--so good rotation opps; the admissions office being really nice and willing to get taxi's for you for FREE to all your rotations. And those taxis aren't ratty--they're nice lincoln town cars." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The north Bronx, where they are, really is safe, but there's just nothing to do there. When I arrived at 7PM into the neighborhood on a Sunday night everything was pracically closed(stores, restaurants, etc), and I was mad starving too so it was a trek before food was found. Also, I kinda don't like the fact that things shut down on Friday night all the way till Sunday Morning(namely the workout facility and the library). Granted, the students tell me they don't use the library but study in a nicer area but this whole closing thing is wack. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that people have interviews at all times of the day. My interview was at 11AM, while others had their interviews at 3PM or 2PM or 9AM. It's just a mix and kinda puts you on edge if you have an afternoon one and half to eat lunch/get a tour with students who are already done. That wasn't my case but I can sympathize with those that were in that situation(you're really not hungry if you know you have an interview right afterwards)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty good day. My interview was a very conversational, nonconfrontational experience. The students are really nice and seem to have a pretty good group synergy. Facilities aren't bad but I wasn't overly impressed in general. You know some places you go to and you just feel it. Nevertheless it's a great school and you just have to see if it's for you."
