What impressed you positively?

"the cheap housing, I believe your own room and sharing a kitchen and bathroom is about $300." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The surrounding area(Bronx) was pretty gloomy, AE's about 45 minutes away from Manhattan (20 min by subway) and yes, strangely enough, there did seem to be a palpable oppressive gloom over the whole campus, and students included - but maybe it was cause I visited NY during the rainy season. I talked to a first year from Santa Barbara, and my basic impression was that he was pretty unhappy about his final decision." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"prepare really good questions about the Jacobi hospital if you're interviewing there (I got interviewed by a surgeon, and even though I had no idea what to ask about the Jacobi hospital other than the standard questions, I had to fill up about 20 minutes of Q and A)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty relaxed, don't forget an umbrella or a raincoat, and you can take the subway from the JFK to Grand Central and save yourself about $15. The Metro bus to AE is about a block away from the Grand Central subway stop; and bring a rolling suitcase!" Report Response
