How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"My fellow interviewees, the clinical opportunities (both Bellevue and Langone seemed AMAZING), the global health opportunities. The students there seemed genuinely very happy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The curriculum is in flux and nobody seemed to be able to provide definitive answers for next year's class. The main med school building is kinda old and the attached dormitory is just so depressing (although inexpensive rent in that area is obviously a huge plus). All the students I met were young white fratboy types. My faculty interviewer hit on me like whoa, which made me feel kind of weird." Report Response

"nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I really liked NYU and felt like I clicked there. The clinical training has got to be amazing, and of its location in Manhattan is a huge plus. At the same time, I felt a little unimpressed by the students I met, who seemed pretty young and privileged, and my faculty interviewer, who verged on inappropriate. Also not too impressed with Rubin Hall, one of the main MI dorms." Report Response
