"The interviewer tried his best to make me feel comfortable and making the interview just a conversation about myself and my experiences. On campus apartments are large, extremely cheap, and close to the classrooms. The are surrounding the school is beautiful and suburban, very un-New York yet close enough to Manhattan." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day was pretty short; there was no information session; we didn't have the opportunity to sit it on any lectures or talk with many students there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would have to take a 20 minute shuttle to Montefiore Hospital for my interview. The admissions office explained where I would get dropped off by the shuttle and where I need to go to get picked up. However, I got dropped off at the pick up spot, and I roamed the hospital for ten minutes because I didn't know where I was." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Make sure you go 45 minutes before your scheduled interview time. If you have to take a shuttle to your interview, you don't want to be late. The school's location is great, and the interviewer was awesome. Since this was my first interview, however, I was pretty nervous. Just RELAX!" Report Response
