What impressed you positively?

"The facilities at NY Medical are all very new. The students seemed pretty happy and I thought my interviewer was great - he was personable and welcoming. The student apts are nice too but not entirely cheap. The campus is nice & quiet too. It's a good environment for study and the city is only a 45 min train ride away." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One aspect of NY Medical that I didn't like was the small campus feel. There's 180 students in each class, which isn't all that small, but the cafeteria, the lecture hall, the apts. across the street from the lecture hall made it seem like a high school boarding school. I also didn't get the feeling that the students went to NY Medical because they wanted to be there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"NY Medical has high USMLE scores for a reason. They work you pretty hard and their curriculum is still pretty traditional. But it seems as though this works for them. Also, it takes the school 10-12 weeks to get back to you after the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was mostly conversational and although my interviewer helped me learn a bit about himself, he left room for me to talk about my experiences as well. Make sure you can handle distractions during a conversation though...my interviewer left his office door that leads to the main hallway open for the majority of the interview." Report Response
