"Yes, dorms aren't my first choice, but you can't complain about affordable rent in Manhattan." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Horrendous weather, but everything (the med school, the dorms, and the admissions office) is connected, so I wasn't outside much. The interview was really relaxed. I was only asked the three questions below, and my interviewer spoke (about assorted topics, including medical school and NYU) for the rest of the interview. I would have liked more of a chance to talk about my application. The students were all very friendly and seemed to like the school and their experience there. It was a short day, but I really didn't miss the usual financial aid presentation or speech from the dean." Report Response
