What was the most difficult question?

"What is the best advice you have ever been given?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Introspection, made sure I had thought about a list of interview questions, read up on the health care debate. A lot of my interview prep was for the first interview I had, which was not at Einstein. That interview, I over-prepared like a mother (mock interviews every three days or so, practically memorized responses)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I really liked the students there. The tourguides were not just MSI's and II's. There were a few MSIII's and IV's. They all seemed to enjoy the school. I personally liked the Bronx, but that might be because I grew up in Baltimore and enjoyed Baltimore. The two seemed very similar to me (even down to being split by I-95). PURE P/F first two years! Students seem very chill and help each other out." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I like walking alone at night which is probably something I can't do in a city like this one." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview is super relaxed. Mine was essentially 30 minutes of the top 20 med school interview questions followed by 15 minutes of just pure conversation. The day is largely guided by students, so it is a hit and miss if you'll get a good group of students that genuinely like the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you're going to interview at Einstein, get a student host and stay overnight. It makes a WORLD of difference the perspective you get." Report Response
