What are your general comments?

"I have heard very good things about Mt. Sinai overall. The students seemed fairly happy, and did not seem over-worked AT ALL. They have plenty of time to chill. Both of my interviewers were boring and not very friendly. One of the doctors kept flipping through my file as I was talking and was obviously not paying attention to what I was saying. He only asked me three questions. I felt like after hearing all these great things about the school, I got a so-so impression overall. However the students seem happy and for the most part the facilities are nice (The lazy-boy chairs in the library are the best!!) There is also a neat exam simulation center where actors fake illnesses. Aside from the student facilities, the hospital is pretty cool. The location is ideal for diverse patients, and right next to Central Park. pass/fail is the best! " Report Response
