What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing too out of the ordinary - How did you get to where you are now? Why NY? Why the Bronx? Could you live here? Why Albert Einstein? Where do you see yourself in 10 years? With a physician for a father, how much did that influence your decision to enter medicine? Are you happy with your application? Overall, he seemed to be testing (in a nice way) my resolve to attend Einstein. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing was overly difficult. He was very friendly, easy to talk to, and peppered me with a lot of questions about myself and my interests. More like a conversation than an interview. Not very structured list of questions so I was able to steer the interview in the direction I wanted it to go. The hour flew by." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"great school website, sdn, talked with current students" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Great program with lots of opportunity to tailor your medical school education to your own interests. Medical Spanish program, 75% financial support for studying abroad after 1st year, research opportunities. Students genuinely happy. Everyone friendly and helpful. My interviewer was just a really cool guy and great to talk with!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Windy. A general complaint about this school is that it is way off in the Bronx. However, I didn't find it all that bad - a lot of the students go into the city on weekends either to play or study. Rotations 3rd and 4th year are also not only isolated in the Bronx, but include places in Manhattan and Long Island. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had a 2:00 interview, was told to be there by noon for tour and lunch. I got there earlier in the AM and was able to sit in on a 2nd year lecture. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very positive. Students are happy and friendly. The program is a solid mix of traditional lecture and integrated/pbl. Interview was laid back and I felt he was genuinely interested in what I had to say and who I was as an applicant." Report Response
