What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was really nice and really wanted me to get to know the school. Students are GREAT! So many came up to us during the interview to tell us how much they love Einstein. Students are the friendliest, most down-to-earth ones I have met and they like to study but like to have fun too (this was my 8th interview). Housing is great, right across the street. Nice first-year lecture hall. Very diverse group of students. Pass-fail makes the first two years much less stressful and less competitive. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Umm...the Bronx haha. Not too much around there for sure. As everyone knows, kind of a run-down area. Not super..but there is an express bus that runs to Manhattan. That's the only major negative. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my day at Einstein. From the other interviewees, to my interviewer, to the students, everyone was really friendly. The interviewer was tough but still friendly! She even arranged for me to talk to an Einstein graduate who was a resident. Tour is good, they show you housing and the first-year lecture hall. Seems like a great place to go and EVERYONE seems to love it there, which says a lot. Only negative is the Bronx!" Report Response
