"Arrived at the admissions office, picked up my sealed folder, went on the tour, had lunch. Then took the shuttle bus to Montefiore and walked to my interviewer's office, had my interview, which was pretty relaxed and casual. He read my file before I came in, but he definitely paid attention and asked me questions relating to it. He was very kind and encouraging. Overall a good experience. (It was my first interview, so I'm glad it was pretty calm.)" Report Response
