What are your general comments?

"Be sure to arrive early, several interviewees had their interviews bumped up for the convenience of the interviewers. My afternoon interview wound up being in the morning. Visitor's parking at the hospital is $1.50/hr, $7.50/day. Admissions office didn't mention free parking and I forgot to ask. Interviewers in general are experienced and volunteered to help find out more about the students. My interviewer claims the interview has a small role in the admission process, while the medical student tour guides claim otherwise. Regardless, the interview covered anything that I wanted to talk about, and he would follow with questions about details. 4-body per cadaver seems to be the lowest out of any other schools I've seen. Class size at 100 is the smallest of all the SUNYs. A car is essential throughout each of the four years." Report Response
