What was the most interesting question?

"My interviewer gave me a speech about how AECOM performs the academic cut-offs and his job is to simply get to know the applicants. After this he just opened up with "just talk, tell me what you think I should know." This would have been a little stressful if it had been my first interview, but luckily I was a little prepared. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None of the questions were very difficult. I felt like he was giving me advice on schools and medical schools in general, I almost felt as though I was meeting with an advisor or mentor. He asked at one point what other interviews I had been on and then proceeded to tell me if those were good or bad schools for me. He seemed very honest and open, I really liked him." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over SDN, my AMCAS and a list of typical interview questions. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were very enthusiastic. I sat in on a lecture, and one of the students immediately started talking to me about how great the school is. They have great programs, even during your first year, and a lot of clinical experience early on. Once you talk to the admissions office, they are very nice and helpful, but they seem to keep contact with the interviewees to a minimum, which was kind of surprising. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This is a very unstructured and laid-back interview day, which is good or bad, depending on what you are expecting. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the Bronx is quite an unattractive area. Great school, and the buildings are beautiful inside, but the outside is pretty blah. I wish they would plant flowers or something." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You should arrive earlier than they tell you to. Depending on your interview location, you will have to walk to one the hospitals across the street from the teaching complexes. There was construction going on, so I had to walk around to the main entrance of the hospital I was going to, which was slightly stressful considering I was getting short on time. You give your file to the interviewer, and talk for about an hour. It is pretty conversational. After that, you return to the admissions office and wait for a student tour and lunch at the kosher cafeteria. After that, you are free to leave and walk around." Report Response
