What impressed you positively?

"The students are SO happy, kind of ridiculously so. The MSTP program director is great, too. The location isn't as bad/dangerous as it has been made out to be. Housing is SO cheap and SO close to the labs, and it's super cheap to keep a car there, too." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location, while not super dangerous, is BORING as all hell. How can Blockbuster be the only thing open after 10 pm?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"New Rochelle (where they put you up) is pretty far away from the campus, and while they'll bus you from the hotel to the campus for the interview, they have no intention of returning you to the hotel after the interview day is done, so it might make more sense to drive from the hotel to Einstein the morning of the interviews, if you are driving to the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two formal interviews (~50 mins each, though they can be as short as 25, depending on your schedule) and several informal interviews (to learn about your interviewers' research, mostly) make up most of the day, which is broken up by lunch (the food really is terrible) and a tour." Report Response
