What impressed you positively?

"The lecture halls were really nice, the apartments were nice and cheap, plus apparently they have a deal with IKEA so you can furnish your apartment for cheaper than normal. The students seemed happy there, and they SWEAR it's a safe neighborhood, although it didn't really look like it. Also, I liked the way the campus was set up, everything's close by. The anatomy lab is up on the 7th floor (instead of in the basement) and has windows and is really well ventilated and there's only 4 students per cadaver." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities seemed kind of run-down, but I suppose that happens in heavily-trafficked city hospitals... The day was pretty disorganized. No official presentation on the school, just what we could get from the students at lunch and our interviewer." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The NJ Turnpike going south, on a Friday during the evening rush hour, is hell. That I'd have to do a good bit of walking (wear comfortable shoes). No one was giving us a presentation of the school or a tour of the hospital. Also, kosher food is much less scary than it sounds (I'm not Jewish)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I'm still pretty neutral about my experiece at Albert Einstein. The school itself was pretty nice, as was the cafeteria, apartments, and gym. The area doesn't look too great though, plus the hospitals could stand a renovation. It's really close to NYC, so you can get there on any given weekend, but it's also far enough away that you won't be distracted during the week. I interviewed with a pediatric oncologist; we didn't really "click" but the conversation kept going for 50 minutes, so I guess that's good." Report Response
