What impressed you positively?

"The interviewer was very positive about the school and the hosptial (my interview was at Montifiore, an affiliated hospital). All pass/fail grading makes the atmosphere, for the most part, seem uncompetitive. Very nice, cheap housing." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No orientation talk from anyone (dean, financial aid...). No folder with info on the school. They expect you to know everything from the website, which is not a particularly good website. Longer tour of the gym than any academic facility. Tour leaders didn't really have anything to say unless we asked specific questions. Just seemed kind of weird." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"No orientation talk of any sort. Nothing fun surrounding the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I just did not get the best feeling from the students giving the tour, which was our only form of information about the school (no orientation, no information booklets). Hard to get a good feel about the school without talking to any sort of administrator. Learned nothing about financial aid or residency placements. For a top 50 school, I thought they could do a much better job with the interview day." Report Response
