What impressed you positively?

"housing is cheap. the taxi drivers in albany also happen to be fluent in english. that's pretty rare... though it speaks nothing of the quality of the medschool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the day wasn't well coordinated. my interviewer was a total asshole (Dr. Slowe? i forget his name). he has an office in the admissions office, and he is just this pathetic old man who thinks he knows everything, including everything about you... so why should i interview if you already had these preconceived ideas about who i am. there is no wireless internet set up yet. there are only 90 availble slots because 50 spots are already reserved for automatic admissions from upstate NY undergrad colleges like RPI, Union, etc." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i've intereviewed at 7 schools and this has been, by FAR, the worst. i would have a positive impression of the school had it not been for my interviewer who was totally rude, and unprofessional. he was (is?) a doctor, yet he doesn't know how to listen or remember what i said? he cut me off constantly, raised his voice, put words in my mouth, and expected me to agree with his ridiculous conclusions about myself?! other than the interiewer, everyone else was sweet. but it's hard to ignore the fact that albany is cold and isolated " Report Response
