"The Bronx. Also, the school, hospitals, etc. are really spread out and the shuttle between is rather unpleasant. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The open vs. closed file issue was a little ambiguous. I went in thinking the interviews were open, but when I arrived, admissions handed me a packet with all my information in it to give my interviewer. She said the interviews were blind. But THEN when I got to my interview, the receptionist took my information to the interviewer, and I waited outside the office for about twenty minutes while he read over everything. If I had known this I would have arrived to the interview much earlier than I did. Also, I wish I had known how wonderful and relaxed my interviewer would be...it would have saved me a lot of stress :)" Report Response
