"nothing" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"structure of the interview day- nonexistent. I really didn't get any feel for the school. Most schools try to impress you even the really top tier ones. Usually, they advertise and talk about their program, but AECOM really didn't do a good job selling the program to me. And I am definitely not sold. I looked up their matchlist the night before my interview. And it wasn't impressive at all. Out of ~190 students, only one student matched to derm program. Location is pretty bad. NYC is an hour away, but still an hour is a long time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I looked at their matchlist ahead of time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They really didn't do a good job explaining their program. I can't even recall if they even attempted to. Having one interview was a bit odd. I wish they had two because sometimes you don't connect with both interviewers. Interview day was absolutely the worst out of all the schools I have interviewed at. Overall, not very impressed with the school at all." Report Response
