"The weather was nice that day." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Basically everything, except the sky lights in the anatomy lab. My interviewers both seemed really dense and kept asking me things like "oh, do you do that for school?" when I graduated almost 2 years ago. Also, neither of them had heard of my undergrad, which is hilarious because it's REALLY well-known and only an hour away from NYMC. The students all seemed like zombies, and it was clear that none of them wanted to be there. Nobody seemed intellectually engaged, and they openly talked about how the school was a lot like high school. Blech." Report Response
