What impressed you positively?

"The students were very enthusiastic, mature and passionate about school and medicine; The interviewer seemed very interested in getting to know me as a person; The dorms are new and a decent size for only $270/mo (triple with 3 indvl rooms, kitchen, eating area, living room, and bathroom), and about $400 for a single I think; school encourages students to think about medicine broadly by funding conferences and summer/rotation electives/year-long medically-related experiences in and outside the country; the Pass-Fail grading system leading to noncompetitive atmosphere; the cafeteria lunch was very good (esp compared to lunches offered at other medical interview luncheons); and the free gym and pool facilities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"only that some students interview at Montefiore (a short shuttle from the Admissions Office), and in this case, you are given your application packet to give to your interviewer. Only then is she/he given the chance to review it (unless they specifically request it beforehand). Also, some people might care that the Bronx itself is very low-key (unlike Manhatten), BUT it is a short express-busride into midtown Manhatten and also short driving distance there. In my case, it's close to my home so I didn't mind. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. Others told me they wished that they knew that cabs from NYC won't know how to get to the school's location (so bring a map!) and to MAKE SURE you know which location at which you are interviewing, so you know whether or not to take a shuttle there after arriving at the Admissions office. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had Albert Einstein as my first choice before interviewing and the interview experience even exceeded my expectations. The people are all very helpful, even if the buildings are a bit of a maze (not different from any other hospital or school I've interviewed). I love the school's social commitment and felt it matched my interests very much. " Report Response
