What was the most interesting question?

"Do you think a quadraplegic could be a doctor (ans: yes, AECOM alum, truly amazing story!!)?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None. It was actually just talking about the school, its wonderful alum, and the great programs and the happy students. My intervier cancelled and one of the co-chairs of the committee interviewed me...he already knew my file so he didn't have much to ask me except why I thought I'd fit into AECOM." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Thought over some basic questions. Read SDN. Read about Howard Dean. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How kind and happy everyone from the students to the faculty to the staff seemed. Everybody was helpful, honest about the school, and seemed to be having a great time there. I attended a couple lectures and felt the same there too. Also faculty seemed extremely approachable. And the Int'l Health program is even bigger and better than I read! Its great, and you're really encouraged to participate!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The Bronx is dreary and not a easy place to live in, despite the AECOM apartments and despite being 35-40m from NYC (supermarkets? safety? dreary buildings :( ). They really try to put a nice spin on it and tell you about all the positive (which might be true) but if you're not from NY, you're definitely taken aback, which is a pity because the school is so amazing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The bus from NYC to the Bronx takes the Metrocard too. Then I wouldn't have run around trying to get $5 in change. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved AECOM even before the interview. The Bronx kind of put me off: but it was seriously the only negative aspect. I just don't know if I myself could live there while going through the 4 difficult years of med school. But the interview experience was enjoyable, warm, comfortable, and very enlightening, and I left feeling I could fit in AECOM so well and love it...if it weren't for the area." Report Response
