What impressed you negatively?

"facilities are notably not the newest... my interview was awful. this really surprised me as i had spoken to or read about numerous other interviews, and almost all of those were very relaxed and easygoing. mine however was given by a rather aloof, cocky, and not-so-nice guy who spent most of the interview focusing on my b-. admittedly a b- in orgo2 isnt a great thing to have on your transcript, but knowing my gpa and MCATs (both at and above NYU averages), extensive international and domestic clinical experience, and other strong parts on the app, i felt he was very much out of line and more just fucking with me. he seemed to get kicks out of brushing off anything good about myself i brought up and going right back to the b-. continually for the entire interview. on the positive side, i inquired at the admissions office, and they were disappointed to hear my account. they encouraged me to submit a written complaint which would be entirely confidential, and upon review, may offer me a second interview. if granted, the first interview would be entirely struck from my record and the interviewer would not be notified. " Report Response

"facilites are a bit dated..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"in general the guy was an asshole, asked irrelevant questions, and shot down any attempt i made at making a better case for myself (always using the b- as the reason why i obviously wasnt committed to being a med student). even still, the school was really great and i dont think he was representative of the faculty or the school as a whole.
