What impressed you positively?

"The reputation of the school, and quality of the affiliated hospitals." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The professors who interviewed me were both unfriendly, unnecessarily aggressive, and one asked me odd personal questions. The students who we met were ditzy, unfriendly, and generally unimpressive. I had a miserable time with my student host, who refused to give me a blanket/pillow/sheets or a towel, made me sleep on a couch that was not long enough for me to fit on (though her bed was vacant because she spent the night with her boyfriend), and who seemed to care more about theater auditions than medicine. The suite mates gave me just as negative an impression of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"I'm surprised that a school with such a strong reputation gave such a negative impression. Perhaps it was just an unfortunate coincidence that all of the unengaged and unkind students at Mount Sinai were involved with admissions on the day of my visit." Report Response
