What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing... I don't think either one of my interviewers actually asked me a question. They just made comments like... so, New York? So, Medicine? Why Medicine? They weren't even complete questions. They just kind of stared at me and waited for me to talk about anything I felt like. It was not stressful at all, but it was strange." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Several thing. First of all, they made us wait FOREVER. We arrived at 8:15, had a quick talk from the dean. Then we had two 20-30 minute interviews at some time between 9 and 12... so for two hours, you had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do. Then, from 12 - 1, NO ONE had ANYTHING to do... we all just waited. At 1, we finally had our lunch and tour. We were absolutely starving by this point. The food was pretty good, though. The tour was absolutely the most poorly conducted tour I have ever had. They didn't have any idea what they were doing. They just talked to each other the whole time. The tour guide confessed that the school was called "Camp Sinai" because they never did any work. IN fact, they told me that even if they had an exam on a monday, they would go out over the weekend before... that seemed a little strange to me. They really didn't sound like they did any work at all. The school didn't seem that bad, but the interview day was horriblely boring." Report Response

"That I was going to spend the entire day doing absolutley nothing." Report Response
