"Nothing difficult." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Went online, read about NYU, spoke with students who are currently enrolled at NYU, studentdoctor.net interview feedback..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How happy the students are; even my interviewer kept repeatedly saying this -- and it's true! When the tour guide took us into the anatomy labs there was a lot of laughing and just a really warm, congenial atmosphere. You can tell the students are happy. Bellevue is amazing too, of course..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wasn't all too impressed with the amount of study space and just the layout of the campus -- there were a lot of new parts and old parts that sort of randomly came together...that and the dorms...teeny, but doable. Oh, and the students seemed fun, but perhaps a little TOO fun...apparently a lot of parties are had." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I would have known that I truly do have a horrible sense of direction. after i got out of the subway, I went west instead of east for 3 avenues. And I'm a native New Yorker. So, I was about 1 minute late for my interview -- which is, of course, a complete no-no -- but I was taken in right away, so I don't think my actual interviewer had any clue about my tardiness. That and I wish I had done a bit more research about NYU's class size -- 160. Big!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was really, really chill. My interviewer was basically selling me the school the entire time and encouraged me to find out if I clicked with it. As I'm not the most competitive applicant, this made me feel really good! The other students also interviewing were really nice and conversation flowed. Lunch was fine: sandwiches, nothing special (and nothing vegetarian -- so be forewarned!). Tour was informative and the vibe was great. I really like NYU!!!" Report Response
