What are your general comments?

"I have to admit Albert Einstein wasn't my first choice at all. I had thought about going there but it wasn't exactly a school I was dying to go to. I got to the admisisons office early and waited around a bit with another interviewee until the secretary came and gave us the material. Right away I saw that they were extremely organized give us maps and tickets and directions. There was no waiting room though which was a downside. I took the shuttle to Montefiore hospital. The secretary was very good at making sure I knew exactly what to do and where to go and even when I got lost the medical students were all extremely nice with directions. My interview...was confusing. My interviewer had a sense of humor and I thought our talk was ok but right around 25 minutes in, he cuts me off in the middle of my answer and basically tells me to leave. I left confused. The tour and lunch happened afterwards. You use your meal ticket to eat at the cafeteria. The food is good, better than normal college food and the conversation is also good. Seeing the school was not too fantastic as we didn't get to see the anatomy lab, or the library. They did show us the apartments and they were GREAT! For that price that they pay it is basically a steal. Doorman, right across from two gyms, kitchen bath, huge bed room, great view, 2 blocks from the school is amazing!!!! Plus, the neighborhood doesn't seem too bad. Overall, visiting the school made me really want to go to Einstein college of medicine. It has definately gone up on my lists of potential schools. However it was also the only bad interview experience I've had yet." Report Response
