What impressed you positively?

"There are obviously a lot of smart people here with a lot of exciting research. The student housing is a nice perk. I also like the medical spanish emphasis they have, extre appropriate since the Bronx has such a large Spanish-speaking population." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities I saw were a little sad looking. The location was not ideal - still the downside of the city (parking, cost of living, etc.), with not a lot of the perks (bars nearby, subway). It took me a solid hour and $5 to get from Manhattan. Also, the tour guides were not very excited about it, he spent most of his time looking at his watch and telling us what he was missing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How remote the Bronx can be without a subway nearby. How much I just don't really think living in New York is my thing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was the best part of the day. It was in the lab/office of my interviewer, with some students doing research milling around. The only curveball was renovation to a room next door, leaving my interviewer and I to shout at one another a couple times. My interview was the first part of the day - kind of a different approach, but nice to have any pressure out of the way. Actually, I felt pretty bad for the other people who arrived first thing in the morning with me. The admissions people were late, leaving one student to find out he was already 15 minutes late to his interview by the time he got his packet. I don't want to sound overly negative because it was a good interview, but the approach of the admissions was a little off-putting." Report Response
