What impressed you positively?

"Students and admissions staff were really friendly. The students seemed to be really happy to be at Albany. 4th year students just stopped by to say hello and good luck for the interview. Also, the rent in Albany is very cheap and Albany is very close to Boston, New York and Montreal. Finally, there are lots of outdoor recreation opportunities nearby (sailing, hiking etc)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The medical center is not located in the nicest neighborhood (although that is the case with most older city medical schools)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Park in the Garage and take the bridge into the hospital (and then ask for directions to the medical school). That way you won't have to be in the winter elements too long. Also, the admissions office is in a separate building from the hospital (though there is an underground passage). Definitly arrive 30 minutes before your check-in time. Finally, bring some reading material since there could be a long lag time between your 2 interviews." Report Response

"I had a GREAT experience interviewing at Albany Medical College. It is a very high quality school, with most students getting top residency choices. I would definitly go there if accepted." Report Response
