What impressed you positively?

"The MSTP program itself- it speaks for itself, its willingness to change yearly, the intercollegiate spirit amongst students, the dedicated/concerned coordinator- truly a learning institution. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The running around to different buildings, we had 4 informal interviewers in addition to the two and had to run from building to building without a map to make it to the next one in time. It was cold, windy, and several of the interviews were off campus. The Bronx ain't that pretty either. Think gray skies and red brick buildings. There's no coffee shops (which means that corporate starbucks hasnt corrupted it, but youre going to have to get used to folger crystals)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is nothing you can do to prepare. One of my formal interviewers and I talked for over an hour, and it didnt follow any format. Your personality/common knowledge will come out with the flow of an unprepared conversation and that is what will truly speak highly of yourself. It's a waste of time to sit there and think of answers to possible questions. Maybe some MSTP interviews are better that way, but not here. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The other applicants were really cool/diverse/interesting, the other MSTP students were really nice/helpful as well. I could see myself being friends with all of them. You don't feel like youre competing when youre surrounded by people so willing to help each other. I had a great time having dinner with other applicants/students and strongly urge all of you to make it to the dinner because thats where you really attain an understanding of what life may be like for you for the next 7 or so years.
