What impressed you positively?

"My interview. He wasn't "out to get me" and was a very laid back radiologist who asked me question -- mostly nonmedical in nature -- to just get a sense of who I was. It was my first interview so it was nice to be put at ease like that. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I asked a student what the impact of having 50% of the student body married was on the unmarried nonJewish students. She said there wasn't really a difference. I figured that couldn't be true! Also, I find the system of the student handing his or her own file over to the interview just before the start of the interview a little bit odd. It's strange to have your interviewer looking at your MCATs/gpa, recommendation and personal statement as you're sitting right there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think it has very much to do with your interviewer. I had a great experience with mine but some of my fellow interviewees said they didn't feel they had "clicked" with theirs. It's a great school, the downside is the location in the Bronx." Report Response
