What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed laid back and confident instead of stressed and competitive. Moreover, the fact that the associate dean of admissions gave a welcome address and got to know each applicant was impressive. The hospital is beautiful, and according to several students, does not just cater to the Upper East Side elite." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a slight time pressure since my first interview started before the tour ended-- I wasn't able to see the dorm rooms. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Honors/pass/fail for all years-- this apparently helps the students to learn without the added pressure of grades. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Most of the interview addressed specific points from my application. The interviewers were obviously not trying to stump me, and they really gave me the impression that they were trying to find out information that they could use to convince the admissions committee to admit me-- it was very reassuring that they seemed on my side in the whole process. Also, my student interviewer said that they report to the committee if a student seems too uptight or not personable, so keep that in mind as well." Report Response
