What was the most interesting question?

"Since it's a closed-file interview, my interviewer spent a lot of time asking me questions about where I was born, what my parents do, where i went to school etc. i guess that's one of the downfalls of these type of interviews, but then it's a good opportunity to break the ice. the most interesting Qs came when my interviewer started asking questions based on my answers." Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"to recall what i've done every summer while in college and if there are any red flags in my application (time unaccounted for in AMCAS, particularly low grades, etc)" Report Response | I was asked this question too

"i should have been more prepared in listing my activities/classes in chronological order (what did you do during your summer sophomore year?) at this point, i know what i've done but it's hard to attach a year to it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's a fabulous school if you want to be in a suburban area for the first 2 years and NYC for 3 & 4th years" Report Response
