What impressed you negatively?

"The location of the school is truly bleak. What is there but miles and miles of snow. Some of the students seemed pretty listless and unenthusiastic about school. Also, one of my tour guides was pretty adamant about how little you need to do to pass. Which is not too reassuring about our future physicians." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How difficult it would be to walk in snow in heels and how bizarrely the buildings are laid out. If you have an interview in the hospital, give yourself some time to get there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I liked Upstate more than I thought I would. Being from NYC, Syracuse has little cultural life to offer, but it has its Upstate charm. It's definitely a place to study. My first interviewer was a second year who asked me some tough questions. I really hit it off with my second interviewer, a faculty member, who was super interesting and we ended up talking for a while about books and stuff." Report Response
