What are your general comments?

"When I applied to MSSM (and when I showed up for my interview), I knew virtually nothing about the school. I applied because it is a decent school and I would like to live in New York. I was very impressed by what I saw during my interview day, and Mount Sinai is now one of my top choices. The interviews were very relaxed and non-stressful, more like conversations than interviews."
