"Read SDN, very brief practice interview with an MD, read about Einstein on the internet and spoke to a couple of students." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The hospitals available for students to train in, had patients from every conceivable socio-economic group. My interviewer had this quiet poise and strength about her when she spoke about treating truly poor and mentally ill patients. From her words it seems as though the faculty actively try to always relate a patient's condition to their life. This seems to help students more easily identify better courses of treatment or support. I really admired this goal of Einstein's faculty." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour could have been structured better and more thorough. There was a glitch in the schedules of our tour guides." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would need much more time if I wanted to see Montefiore Hospital." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I left Einstein with a positive view of the students and facilities, and an exceptionally high opinion of the administration and the faculty. Many of the students seemed truly happy with their decision to study at Einsten and had substantive examples of how the administration supported them (study assistance, financial assistance for research interests, encouraging and funding abroad rotations) As I said, between this and the hospitals, it is easy to see why Einstein is looked at so favorably among medical students and critics alike."
