What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, and if I knew how relaxed it was going to be I would not have been half as nervous. I was part of a group of maybe 12 other interviewees. We went on a tour together, ate lunch, had a Q & A session with the med students and then had our individual interviews. The facilites aren't wonderful, but then again, who cares when you're in NYC. At Downstate, it seems guaranteed that you'll be taken above and beyond as far as acquisition of hands-on skills are concerned. " Report Response
