What are your general comments?

"Great experience in the actual interview. Kind of tough to be there at 8:00AM, but it was alright because we got out early. Once again, being relaxed was key. I don't think that anyone in my group had an aweful experience. Know why you want to go to NYMC (what appeals to you)." Report Response
