What impressed you positively?

"Cohesiveness of the student body--the folks there really seem to gel and competition among the students seems hard to find. The facilities are pretty nice and new(nicer than all the other schools I've been at). There is a study alcove reserved for just students. The admissions staff were very friendly and helpful. Cheap, on campus housing. Sure, dorms may not be what you're hoping for but at $650/month in midtown Manhattan(six blocks from empire state, you have a view of East River and the UN building) it's a steal. Bellevue hospital is a great place to do clinical rotations. If you have time after your interview I'd recommend walking through the hospital. When you enter the hospital ask for the House officer(his name, at least when I was there, is Alfred) so that he can give you some info. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of wireless capabilities in some parts of the school. My student host said that they are changing that so that wireless will be throughout within a couple of years. Currently there is wireless only in the hospital. I'm not some sort of tech nerd but I like being able to access the net to check on my ebay bids wherever and whenever :) " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I love the school. It's definitely at the top of my list because of the great clinical opportunities at Bellevue, the cheap on campus housing, chill students, location in NYC, and friendly admissions staff/faculty. My interviewer was a very nice gentleman who just wanted to turn the experience into a conversation. I don't know if I truly made a favorable impression but I'll just let the chips fall as they may. Another curious thing that I noticed was that most of my fellow interviewees were either from Ivy League schools or private schools...nothing against that at all but I'd be curious to find out how many students from state schools get interviews or get in.
