What impressed you positively?

"The kids who provided the campus tour were very enthusiastic about their school/experiences but were also willing to honestly tell us the downsides of the school. The facilities are very nice and there is a real sense of camaraderie. Professors appear to be very accessible and willing to help." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Rain, wind tunnels, and getting stuck in an elevator during the campus tour did not leave me with the best impression of the school but I'm sure things would have been better on a different day. It seems like some students make time to go out and go into the city as first years, but overall, student life seemed a little less exciting that I'd hoped for. A tour guide pointed out that AECOM favors older kids with extensive life experience, and the majority of students are either married or in serious relationships by the beginning of the first year, certainly a negative for some prospective students. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I drove into the Bronx and missed my scheduled morning interview b/c of an accident on the GWB. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because the admissions office staff was nice enough to accommodate me by giving me a late afternoon interview, one that provided me with the opportunity to spend the entire day tagging along with some second-years. I sat in on two lectures, which, in addition to the campus tour/lunch, gave me a good feel for what it's like to be a student at AECOM. The interview itself was extremely laid back and barely addressed anything regarding my qualifications or applications. The interviewer stressed that AECOM seeks students with compassion, empathy, and humanity and does not believe in the "stress interview." I kind of got the feel that they don't believe in asking questions, period. As my interviewer pointed out, the interview was unlike any other I've experienced. He shared many of his experiences as a clinician as well as his views on medicine and healthcare, which was interesting. " Report Response
