How did you prepare for the interview?

"Took a nice bath." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Inexpensive and great, convenient dorms. Laid back atmosphere of the students, but hectic atmosphere in the hospital - a good thing. Funded international exchange/study/research abroad programs. They seem to have $$ and if you want to rotate in the city, then you can get housing there too. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The student body was not as diverse as I want it to be. Many were Jewish and yamukahs are a norm there. I don't know if I would fit in. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you're from NY, that part of the Bronx is not bad at all. If you're not, it would be a great learning environment if you wish to serve a diverse patient population. Anyway, you can always rotate in their other great hospitals in Manhattan and Long Island. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I hopped on the Express Bus from the city in the morning. The ride was not bad at all, $4.00 exact change only. It was as safe as I can get in NYC. My interview was in another location and I was sent off in a limo cab (for free). There are restaurants and stores around. I don't know what some previous posts were talking about, but you would have to walk around to see. From the previous posts, I thought that the surrounding neighborhood would be bad, but it wasn't that bad at all. It's representative of the diverse population of NYC. You would be living like a real New Yorker (a perspective living from another borough) and not a Manhattanite. " Report Response
