"Nothing was difficult. The questions were mostly about getting to know me." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Mock interviews, reading questions and papers from the bioethics class at AMC (posted online @the AMC website)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"First off, everyone was pleasant. Admissions staff, interviewers, our guides, students, everybody. A lot of schools say they have a family-like atmosphere, but I felt it here. The library was huge and the school is close to a lot of other colleges, so there are the resources associated with that. The city itself has nice parks and opportunities for outdoorsie activities, and Manhattan, Boston, and Montreal are all close enough for a weekend trip (without being so close as to be a distraction)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tuition is high, but the cost of living is a fraction of what you would pay living in or around a big city, so it evens out in the end. Also, some posts complain about the buildings looking old, but from what I saw the lecture rooms and hospital looked better than the ones I'm in now. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that I didn't need to neurotically study papers related to my research because I wouldn't get grilled." Report Response

"This was a totally laid back experience. I was completely impressed by AMC." Report Response
