How did you prepare for the interview?

"My 7th interview" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewer was nice, however, I feel the program is sub-par to other NY medical institutions. I was much more impressed by Stony Brook and Buffalo out of the SUNY System. Driving from Cornell to Binghamton was closer than driving to Syracuse. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer was not a MD/PhD so not in a position to give me details about the program, but was sufficient in answering my general questions." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They weren't prepared/ready for me, and I felt I wasted my time applying here. The few medical students that I interacted with during the day seemed very "immature" in their behavior to say the least." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview went relatively well, however, I came away disappointed about the school. Focus on research seems weak and lacking strong foundation. Currently wait-listed at Cornell and NYU, accepted at all the 4 SUNYs, NYMC, and Mount Sinai." Report Response
