What impressed you positively?

"The interviewer and the student who gave me the tour. Both of them were enthusiastic about what they were doing and also about the school. Both of them were organized and knew their stuff. They knew what they were doing. I was greatly impressed with my interviewer because she was really nice and friendly. It was my medical school interview and I was really nervous because as we all know people make a big deal out of it. But as I started talking to her I started feeling really comfortable and 60 minutes went by so quickly. Really, she is such a cool interviewer." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't see any negativity during my visit. Most of the people complain about the neighborhood. But if your main goal is to go to a medical school, then you shouldn't be worrying about the neighborhood. It is a bad nieghborhood, but it isn't that bad. It is pretty safe. If you think about it, these are the kind of neighborhoods where you can really make a difference as a doctor." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was really nice. I am a junior in my undergrad school right now and at the time of my interview I had just finished my sophomore year at Rutgers, New Brunswick. I had applied through a special program between Rutgers/NJMS where one applies at the end of his/her sophomore and if they get in they start medical school early. I applied and fortunately I was called for an interview. I was really nervous for the interview especially because I was an early applicant. But my interviewer my really cool. She was so nice and friendly. She just asked me to relax and make myself comfortable and we talked for an hour. It was kinda informal. After I was done with my interview I had a good feeling about it. Literally, all the credit goes to my interviewer. She made it seem so easy." Report Response
