What impressed you positively?

"On-campus dorm-style housing is guaranteed for all 4 years ($575 a month for a single room, there is a communal coed bathroom per floor - I'm not saying that's a highlight, btw) and the dorm is connected to the medical school. Also, NYC is a great location because of the wide population diversity, convenient public transportation, and great hospitals in the area. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was disorganized and our first-year student guide, although very friendly, often didn't elaborate on the places he showed us. We were left to ask him for all the details instead, and I tried to but it felt a little odd because no one else spoke during the entire 1-hour tour. This might have been because it was Saturday morning, but there was no welcome given by the dean of admissions, nor was there any talk about financial aid. All information it seemed was to be read on our own in the pamphlets we were handed." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Since my interview was on a Saturday morning, no lunch was served but there was coffee and tea provided with a nice selection of breakfast pastries for us. The tour happened to be before my interview and that lasted 1 hour with much up-and-down stair climbing. Great exercise but not fun in heels. I interviewed on Satruday the day after all first-years finished their exams, so the atmosphere was very quiet and probably not typical. My interviewer was 10 minutes late but was smiling and friendly - until I sat down for the actual interview. He turned stone-faced and asked the first question before I even settled down in my chair. What made this interview a little stressful was he didn't ask me any followup questions even though I asked him twice if there was anything else he would like to know. I talked for 99% of the interview and then asked him 5 questions about the school. At the end, though, he finally cracked a smile and said that there's no guaranteeing anything but I have a good shot of being accepted to NYU and should seriously consider this as my school of choice. That was the best way I've ever ended an interview." Report Response
