What impressed you positively?

"The school has a yearbook and a student literary magazine as well and a journal of student research publications. The school also has immense diversity within the student population (students from their Quebec program were there) and their patient population (apparently one of the hospitals third years rotate at is an entirely spanish speaking hospital). The school also pays for one night at a nice hotel (Aloft Harlem) and they will pick you up from the hotel the morning of the interview. They are also opening a new student housing complex very close to the school." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"To be a little more organized. The interview day only lasted from 10:00-2:30, but it definitely felt long because of how unorganized it was. There was a lot of just waiting around and at one point there was a lot of confusion with the admissions staff of who had had both of their interviews (a student interview and a faculty/dean interview). Also the student interview didn't seem necessary." Report Response
