What impressed you positively?

"My second interviewer did NOT try to make my experience as pleasant as possible and I actually respect these kinds of interviews a lot more. He was honest about the school and said several negative things about it, and his questions were intended to challenge me. In general, people at AMC felt very low-key and honest; the interview experience did not feel like a commercial for their school, which is the case for a lot of schools." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was no sense of pride among the student body about living in Albany or attending AMC. Albany is only a town of 90,000 and it is quite dilapidated." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"AMC is an old-fashioned school that doesn't stand out. The faculty, however, seemed very knowledgeable and focused on educating medical students. It is a school you would want to attend if you want to just focus on getting your medical education. It isn't a good place if you want a lot of distractions from traditional learning."
