What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"I was asked to explain a low grade on my application. This was the first question he asked after sitting down so I thought it was going to be an ugly interview. It was the only negative he asked about." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"What do you think the academic environment of medical school is like and what does it take to be succesful?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"No suprises in the interview questions...very conversational...was asked to explain what osteopathic medicine means to me." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"This was a pleasent interview. The question about osteopathic medicine required the most thought, but I had been asked that in a few previous interviews." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"looked over sdn interview feedback, school website, reviewed ACCOMAS app." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilites look nice. Lecture halls, anatomy lab, availability of streaming lectures etc. all modern with integrated technology (even when compared to DMU!) I was impressed with the Stan and Peda patient models as well as the clinical practice set up. The problem based learning type pathway was also appealing. Also, the affiliation hospitals are second to none for DO schools, which is advantageous to competitive residency placement." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The large class size is not ideal. However, its always up to the individual to remain either an anonomous member of the class or get involved in clubs, groups, volunteering etc." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The one advantage to NYCOM starting interviews later than all the other DO schools is that I had a chance to check out a lot of other places before going here." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After reviewing the mixed interview feedback and forum posts on SDN about NYCOM I didn't know what to expect before my visit. My impression of the school was better than I expected. I made a list of the strengths that each previously visited school had. This list included technology, facilities, affilation hospitals, availablity of problem based learning pathway, and residency match list. Unlike any of the other schools I have visited, NYCOM is strong in every one of these catagories. Obviously, if accepted, this is where I will be going." Report Response
