What impressed you positively?

"smart DT and students, partnership w/ AECOM, MPH training if wish, 3 years of externships. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"no tour, no meeting with other faculty, nothing. this is a great program, and it advertises itself horribly, and is talked about on the NYC interview in a somewhat negative way as a result. the students themselves seemed very smart and driven and happy (despite the lack of funding), but i made a real effort to search out people to talk to. needs a serious pr makeover." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"no chance to meet other faculty, no tour. i was surprised at these omissions (it was my first interview) and would have been more proactive about exploring the facilities and campus. also, express bus is $ and made me carsick, and subject to the vagaries of NYC traffic -- take the train!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the student was great, but the faculty interview left me feeling shaky and like i failed (even though i ended up getting in). is ultimately an excellent program, best health psych training save maybe rutgers, in the NYC area and an amazing access to AECOM and public health training, but has AWFUL marketing -- a program for the bold, enterprising, and self starters.
