How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read the NYCOM website and read up on the new dean, Barbara Ross-Lee" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Both people who interviewed me were great, really friendly and made sure I felt at ease. The student who gave the tour was great too, and you could tell he loved the school. I also liked the two separate interview process, it gave you the chance to mention things in the 2nd interview that you might have wanted to say but forgotten in the 1st. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Yes the library is small and the gym is nonexistant BUT the undergrad school is building a new gym that will be open to NYCOM students and there is plenty of studying space throughout the school to make up for the library." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew there was going to be a lot of waiting around but I didn't realize it was going to be that bad. Definitely bring a book or something to study. After the 2nd hour of sitting in that room, you're going to wish you had something to read." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I thought it was great. I felt totally at ease and so comfortable. They also got back to us pretty quickly. I was interviewed on Nov 20th and found out on Dec 12th that I got accepted. There were no harsh questions like "Why did you get this grade in this class?" or even any questions on health care reform. It was more like they just wanted to talk to you and find out what kind of person you were. " Report Response
