"the friendliness of the students and interviewers! Sinai seems to have a very chill environment. Plus, it's got a great location in NYC (you can see Central Park from their anatomy lab!! what more could you ask for?)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was raining (not pouring but not sprinkling either) and instead of taking the tunnel our rude tour guide took us outside instead, getting all of us interviewees and our not cheap suits wet. That really annoyed me because we were approaching the building that would have taken us to the tunnels but then our tour guide just cavalierly decided it didn't matter and without asking any of us started walking outside. Grrr...Luckily, our other tour guides were nice. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There was a brief intro then a thirty minute orientation. Then the two interviews are scheduled from 9:30-11:30am with any downtime you experience spent in talking to the med students who come by the admissions office periodically throughout the morning. The interviews were open-file and very relaxed, focusing more on me than on my app. My interviewers could not have been nicer :) Then there's a financial aid session, lunch and two tours. Overall, it was a pretty pleasant experience and the fact that we got done early was just the cherry on the top! " Report Response
