How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN Medical School Interview Feedback. Wrote down questions I wanted to ask prior to interview. Drank 3 cups of coffee. Paced around nervously." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"There were many attractive females. Everyone seems approachable and smiles. It's in a pretty, woody, relatively secluded, relaxed area, but still within a reasonable distance to NYC." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"As I was waiting for my taxi to arrive, professor Hahn (I believe this was her name) was yelling at a student who had parked in her parking space, got security to show up, and pretty much made an ass of herself (I'm not sure what she teaches). I'm not sure of the circumstances of the incident, but it was a bit alarming." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It was as I had expected. There weren't really any downers. Everyone seemed happy to be there, barring the crazed professor. Maybe this happens to her a lot, but I'm sure she's making a reputation for herself, even it's not neccessarily fair to her. This may have been an isolated incident, but it was a little shocking to see a professional middle aged woman as upset about a parking spot as she was." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's a nice school. It is relatively compact, but it seems to be a convenient arrangement. I saw several students who, upon seeing me in a suit, wished me good luck. So that was good. Also, I noticed many attractive girls, not something I was expecting. That part was excellent. High five for admitting them!" Report Response
