What impressed you negatively?

"How old housing apartments looked. Didn't have an "orientation session" like most others schools. You just show up, interview, then have lunch/tour. No other info on financial aid or the school or selection process." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you're flying in from out of state, be sure you have directions ready from your hotel to the school if taking the taxi. I was staying at JFK airport and figured the taxi guy knew where the school was. Good thing i left plenty of time b/c the taxi driver had no clue and even had to stop by a gas station and ask other taxi drivers. Better off taking the subway into manhatten and then the express bus straight to Einstein. A lot cheaper too." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Got to school early b/c i had a 9:00am interview. School looks nice. Area around school looks okay, not too scary. You carry your file to the interviewer, so my interviewer took around 20 minutes to read my file while I waited in his research lab. interview was very laid back and more conversational style. he asked about my family. Got into the subject of language and if it was hard for me or my parents (i'm vietnamese, Cali born but parents from Vietnam). Also got into whole animal research ethics and peta (my lab works with rabbits) and if it was okay to do animal research. Also got into research ethics questions. Wasn't too bad for ethical questions b/c it was more like a discusssion than question-answer. Very pleasant interviewer. Lunch was good. We ate at their kosher cafeteria, which was not that much of a difference to me since i'm not jewish but was good for jewish interviewee. Lunch was all you can eat, better than some of the other places i interviewed at. tour did not extend to hospital, but we did see the new first years lecture halls (which were very sweeet) and one of the M1's housing apartments. I was done after the tour, took the express bus from the school straight into manhattan, then went sight-seeing. " Report Response
