What are your general comments?

"PROS: 1) the facilities are very nice. 2) pass/fail grading system and honors/pass/fail grading sytsem in second year means the students work together a lot and are not cut throat 3) students do well above the national average on the USMLE 4) students were extremely happy with their experience at Einstein 5) student housing is cheap (approximately $300 a month) albeit it feels like you're living in a dorm again 6) beginning of each class, the students get a list of all the power point slides that the professors will use, so you don't need to go to class and can just study the power point slides (which can be good for some students and not good for others) 7) there's an express bus that goes to Manhattan that leaves pretty frequently CONS: 1) the library closes early on Fridays and is not open on Saturdays since its a Jewish-affiliated campus. this is not a big deal though--students I hear study at Fordham's library which is right down the street. 2) the interviewer does not see your file before hand. when you first arrive, you go to the admissions office and they give you a sealed packet with all of your info that you must give to your interviewer. when I reached my interview location, I gave the packet to my interviewer. i then i sat in a room for 20 - 30 minutes while my interviewer read over my file in another room. the interviewer then called me in and i had my interview with the interviewer. i have no idea why the heck einstein does this. if the interviewer had more time to prepare, i feel that he could have asked better questions to get to know me aside from the standard--"why medicine? why einstein? what should i tell the admissions committee about you?". they should really change this. i see no reason for it to be this way. this pertains to the interview though and not to the quality of education at einstein which, overall, is pretty darn good.
