What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed with the diversity of students on the campus, the facilities seemed decent, if not spanking new, at least up to date." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The surrounding town of Old Westbury is nondescript, though it is 22 miles east of Manhattan, the drive to the city is usually hampered by heavy traffic. The local area is supposed to be expensive (though I don't know why it should be) and also the tuition at the school is projected to increase 7% every year..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Mapquest directions to the school were wrong. I had to call school. From the Long Island Expressway heading East, take exit 39. Turn left at traffic light, keep going until you hit Northern Boulevard. Turn right. You will see NYIT on your right." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was in a group of 10 people. We were the afternoon session. I was surprised they didn't spread out their interviews more sparsely. We only had one interview with one person and it was, at least for me, a short one. But the school appears to have a large medical class, so they probably accept over >400 to 500 students to fill their class of 300." Report Response
