What impressed you positively?

"Everything!! Wow..loved how chill the day was. Having oreos, chips, trail mix, coffee, tea, and water available in morning was awesome! Also love that during the tour, the students actually allowed us to see inside their apartments. They're pretty good for the price! Note: for the price;). I just love the whole campus, oh and the pre-clinical years are actually true P/F so that is amazing:) Lunch was pretty good too. And the 3rd year student we had for the tour was amazingly funny and real about everything about Einstein-the good and the ugly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was extremely impressed by everything! Except the gym. It's pretty small, so if you're someone who goes to the gym a lot you should get a membership at the gym down the block. Oh and the library is kind of small as well, but there's a bunch of empty classrooms and other study areas available." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Just be yourself, It's a a really chill day! Also had my favorite interview lunch at Einstein, but maybe that's because I got tired of sandwiches/wraps all the time:D Oh and don't look up the name of your interviewer before your interview, you may be intimidated by his amazing accomplishments, and then you may cry haha. But my interviewer was only intimidating on paper so you can if you're that curious. :D" Report Response
