What impressed you positively?

"The people are nice there. The student host is especially nice, who prepared a bed, answered tons of my questions and allowed me to stay for two nights." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The dorm is...little dirty and shaggy. The administrative stuff were late on my scheduled appointment time so another applicant and I sat outside wondering what happened. Also we had to find our own interviewers. If they could give us more time, that will definitely decrease our nervousness of trying to get to the place on time. However, they did take their time to explain the route!" Report Response

"Do more research on the NY sightseeing spots...haha..since I didn't leave right away after my interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was less nervous than I thought. I took the advise on the SDN to talk to the applicants. The one I met in the morning was very nice so chatting helped me to divert my attention. He later on even showed me how to take the subway = ) The interview part was a little uncomfortable since my interviewer kept standing up to fix the heater. Because she is a physician, so she kept looking at the watch. After 15 mins, she already wanted to stop, but I just seized any chance I can to keep talking. Nonetheless, it was also because of that I slipped out some stupid answers that I should not have said. So...don't be nervous if your interviewer keep looking at their watch, that's just a doctor's habbit! Stay Calm! THe interviewer did try to develop a conversation with me. The experience was like a pretty relaxing situation. I have not received their response yet, so I would know how my "chatterbox" strategy worked! The students tour was informative. However, the tour students kept talking about where you can have drinks and have fun, which did not really help me to learn more about the medical school. But they did a good job trying to answer all the applicants' question and chill with us = )" Report Response
