How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read these posts and reviewed the school's website. They sent me a pamphlet in the mail, I read that during my flight and found it kinda useful." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Almost everything. The doctor was fantastic who interviewed me. The students were friendly and clearly happier than most, the apartments and amenities were better than expected. I was blown away by this school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location... The school itself had a pleasant atmosphere and a great student body, but the surrounding neighborhood gave a bad impression. I took the time to explore before my interview. It wasn't scary, but not a good place. That being said, the teaching hospitals definitely receive a wide range of patients from all backgrounds." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school has a strong Jewish heritage. This definitely wasn't a bad thing, but I wish I had known. I was raised in a non-religious family, and the religious atmosphere caught me off guard." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"An absolutely fantastic school. The neighborhood was not good, I won't lie, but the school was beyond all of my expectations. The students are friendly and cohesive, the campus is really nice (it is really a bubble within the Bronx) and the doctor who interviewed me was funny, intelligent, and overall a great guy. Living in the Bronx might be less than ideal, but I imagine that the hospitals there are extremely busy and a great place to learn about medicine." Report Response
