What impressed you negatively?

"I was very negatively impressed by the admissions office/planning of the day. Everyone in the office was very nice, but it was disorganized. I was told to be there at 8:30 and no one was in the admissions office until 8:50, there was no coffee or tea/breakfast (I know that is not so important, but its nice after a long morning of getting to the bronx). I also did not like how there is no presentation or information packets given. My interviewer was awesome, but she does not teach at the med school so could not really answer questions about it. (It is possible to meet with the Dean of Admissions, but you must plan this ahead of time and I had to catch a flight back home)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I did not really need to be there at 8:30 for my 9:30 interview, takes awhile to get to the bronx, but not that bad once you know where you are going." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my interview and the lunch with students, but I found the set-up of the day to be the worst I have seen so far. The admissions office seemed disorganized, I would have liked either a short presentation or a packet/booklet for information. Also you bring your interviewer your file, they review it for 10 minutes and then you talk. Most people seemed to have positive, laid-back interview experiences and the school/program seems great overall!" Report Response
