"Why NYU? My interviewer, who did not even read my file like every other adcom member did, asked me a bunch of stupid questions ALL revolving around, WHY NYU!??!? I answered the first time in about 1 minute with very specific details/reasons, and then he asked a few more questions, and then asked two more times throughout the interview, Why NYU? He did not look engaged at all during the interview and had a very strong chinese accent which I could hardly understand. Waste of my time....." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Not much......" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Where to even begin......The halls were extremely crowded, the labs were crammed full of students with a panicked look on their face trying to complete their work, and my interviewer (I firmly believe) did not pay any attention to me or what I was saying. I did not have a good experience there and I wouldn't attend the school if it was the only place I got into. Not worth the price and lack of quality education I could receive at any of the other 5 schools I got into." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"I honestly went into the interview with an open mind and disregarded all of the bad comments I heard others make about NYU before walking into my interview day. I was not impressed overall and there were so many things that I disliked about the school. I interviewed at 6 schools and got into 5 of them and could say that compared to all the others this was by far the worst school/program (at least for me and accoprding to me experience). This is the only place I interviewed at where I did not get accepted to (I was wiatlisted here) and was not at all surprised with my lousy interview with the most disengaged interviewer I have ever had. Now I must decide, Columbia or UCLA....." Report Response
