What impressed you positively?

"the location is awesome, in upper east side manhattan, right next to central park. the curriculum is somewhat integrated, and they have lots of opportunities for people to explore their interests early on. the interview day is not pushy-they know the school isn't for everyone, but they have a really good program. the students have a lot of free time during the week. their apt-style dorms are huge, much bigger than i expected for new york city, and they're right across the street."

What are your general comments?

"my first interview with the student went pretty well, very laid back. my second interviewer started by asking me, so what do you think the purpose of this interview is? i told him, to select people who would be happy at mt. sinai. he said actually, all interterviewees are acceptable, but the purpose of the interview is find out what's wrong with people, their flaws, signs of "emotional instability." so he asked me what was wrong with me, and i gave him an answer to the "what are your weaknesses" question which he wasn't satisfied with. he proceeded to keep asking me because he said, "oh, you're not being very helpful." although that part was kind of stressful, i really appreciated his honesty throughout the interview. it was very clear that he knew the interview game, had heard all the standard answers. before we shook hands as we were leaving, he commented, lemme see your hands, yeah they're cold (to see how nervous i was);). overall though, liked his personality and i love the school, i hope after that somewhat stressful interview he got a good impression of me."
