What are your general comments?

"We met for lunch and a quick overview of the admissions process and an even faster presentation of financial aid. THe registrar said that they do not start sending out decisions until the end of November. Then we had a tour led by 2nd year students and it was back to the lobby to wait for interviews. I had two interviews, one with a 4th year student which was totally friendly and relaxed and another with a doctor which was a mix of friendly and ethical. AMC is known for its ethical interviews. One 4th year who stopped by while I was waiting for my second interview said the true albany interview experience is one friendly, one ethical interview." Report Response
