What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was very friendly and really just wanted to have a conversation with me. Zero stress! A million students came up to us throughout the day and answered our questions and were all very nice. The school and patient population is very diverse. Bellevue is a great public hospital with diverse patients because of the urban location. NYU is the best located of all the med schools in NY!!! " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Facilites (classrooms and lab) are not so great. Student housing isn't so great because it is dorm style. But most people can't afford an apartment in that area, so it makes sense. Sooo many people apply to NYU, seems REALLY hard to get in. Other interviewees seemed a bit stuck on themselves because they all came from Ivies. Hmmmm." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That most students at NYU are from the tri-state area. I am from the West Coast...not too many west coasters at NYU but this may change next year because now NYU is on AMCAS. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a great time at NYU. Although there really is no formal welcome (just interview, tour, lunch) I got all the information I needed to from all the students who drop by and talk to you. Everyone was very nice there, and students seemed down-to-earth and normal work-hard play-hard kind of people. Interview is totally conversational so don't even worry about that! I don't know what they can gather from the interview, but it is not stressful at all which is good. This is a great school in a GREAT area...only major negative is the housing (see below). But that is not such a big deal given everything else the school has going for it. " Report Response
