What impressed you positively?

"The hospital is part of the medical school making it easily accessible. The faculty seems open to having students shadow them." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I only had 1 interview because they ran out of interviewers that day (everyone else got 2). I traveled across the country on the red-eye because they only do interviews on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You would think they could find someone to do the interviews. The tour guide was not overly friendly and her answers to questions during lunch were not very positive. Albany isn't the best area. The school doesn't really go out of its way to help the students. If the students take the initiative, they can get involved and get more exposure but I would like a school that provides more structured advising and mentoring. My interviewer didn't seem to believe what I had written on my application as she was really grilling me about my experiences. Her questions seemed more like she was trying to see if I would slip up." Report Response
