What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was a couple minutes late, but more than made up for it by providing a few extra minutes at the end. She was very kind and truly wished to learn about me. She took notes during the interview and had trouble understanding me when I spoke quickly, but she was very easy to talk to and made the interview very comfortable, especially since this was my first. The campus is small and most buildings are the Westchester Medical Center, but the facilities are great and newly renovated. The student housing is very nice and not horribly expensive. The financial aid department is great and helps the students with advice and assistance. The students are happy and relatively stress free (non-competitive) and they do exceedingly well on the Boards." Report Response
