How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over my application more than a few times and really made sure that I could speak at great length about anything an interviewer could ask me about. Additionally, I researched the school quite extensively, read the student manual, and spent an hour chatting with an MS4 over the phone." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone I met at Hofstra, from faculty to students, truly loved the school. The curriculum is modern, impressive, and well thought out. You get clinical exposure starting week 1, and (what I love best) much of your learning is self-guided and in teams. Look up the PEARLS curriculum, and you can't but help be impressed. The ratio of faculty to students is ~5:1. That's a top tier ratio, and this school is looking to be an academic & clinical powerhouse in the next 10 years. They are a rising school, and, from the students that I met that they have recruited, they clearly are on the rise. On a final note, their student lounge was on point... and only students (and not faculty) have access, so it's a truly safe space to just hang." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students mentioned that the neighborhood is kind of a dead zone for nightlife. That being said, you're a half hour away from the beach. I would trade a day at the beach for a hundred nights in a club." Report Response

"I wish the the special video they should us during the interview was available on their youtube channel. It made me tear up. It was fantastically done." Report Response

"I would be ecstatic if I went to Hofstra next year. Can't say enough positive things about the curriculum and the students." Report Response
