What impressed you positively?

"The students have well rounded lives. They study, of course, but they go out and party, theres LOTS of student organizations (dance club with a breakdancing teacher that week), and they seemed to have alot of time to live and enjoy NYC. Also, NYU likes NYU grads. so if you go there, you have a good (better?) shot at getting into thier residency programs. Also, easy access to M15 bus line. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interview day felt sorta bare bones. No financial aid presentation, no dean of admissions speech. It was: interview at this time, tours at this and that time, lunch at noon. So you didn't get the feeling administration was accessible. Students say they are very easy to talk to however." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"NYU is quirky in that alot of the people there (deans, profs, etc.) are NYU grads (med school AND residency, and now working there)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was slightly stressful in that the guy interviewing me asked a question like "describe yourself" and looked at me without any change of expression. Even when I stopped talking. He was nice enough, but I felt like my answers sounded wishy washy as I was trying to gauge his reaction, and I wasn't getting anything from him. My interview was early too. I'm not a morning person. Other than that, I absolutlet LOVE the school. Since they are now part of the AMCAS system, they will rise in classification quickly. Now they are sorta like the bottom rung of the Ivy League.
