"I liked the students and the people, everyone was very friendly. Housing is cheap in Albany." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tuition, also I wasn't really a fan of the city of Albany, probably because I'm from a big city in the Midwest. It wouldn't be so bad though..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was a little nervous about getting a bunch of ethical "what would you do" type questions, but I actually only got one in each interview, and they were both about my experiences with DNR/living will orders at the emergency dept I work at. A couple of other people I talked to got many ethical questions though, so I think it's just luck of the draw. Also, I stayed with a student, which was definitely worth it since there isn't great transportation aside from taxis within the city, and I don't think there are a ton of hotels in the immediate area."
