"If I gave you three adjectives to describe your high school experience: integrated, isolated, and neutral, which would you choose and why? (I took the easy way and chose all three)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This website, the school's website, AMCAS application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The student experience; everyone seems really happy, the pass/fail system takes off a lot of pressure, and 1st and 2nd years have tons of free time (even if the dorms are closets). The experience at Bellevue would be incredible, there are plenty of research and clinical experiences available, and NYU pumps a lot of money into extracurricular organizations." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the facilities seem on the small side, but that fact pales in comparison to all of the good stuff. This is what you get in Manhattan I guess." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it was so easy to get there and that the cab ride would be so expensive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My experience was kind of hectic, because the day of my interview the school cancelled their 1:00 tours because of some kind of conference. So everything had to be squeezed into a smaller time frame, and that cut into my interview time. The interview was great though, so it wasn't too bad. Give yourself some extra time to get there, because getting to the Admissions Office from the main entrance for the first time can be an interesting experience." Report Response
