How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, medical ethics websites" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The people who are there seem truly happy - physicians, students, secretaries. Everyone. Seems like you can get a lot of good clinical training in your first two years if you have a little initiative." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Facilities and Albany itself are not great. Also seems like you have to go a little out of your way to get shadowing opportunities your first year - but if you do, supposedly they actually let you do procedures." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would be sitting around for a while waiting for interviewers to show up - expect to be there from 11-4:30. Talk to the other people interviewing - it will put you at ease!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't listen to what people say on SDN. Those are people who only care about prestige and name and are not secure enough to make comments with factual information. Go to Albany and see it for yourself. If you are the type of person who can make the most of something and is not afraid to go out and get it, Albany might be the place for you." Report Response
