What are your general comments?

"Date of the interview was changed to preserve my anonymity. The overall impression of NYMC I got during the interview day was not very positive. The new education building was very new and nice but other buildings around the campus were unremarkable. The campus seemed very isolated, staff unfriendly, and students not all that enthusiastic or happy at the school. Although it was open-file, my interviewer did not seem to have read through my file. The interviewer basically went down the AMCAS activity list and did not give me much time to talk or elaborate on things I wanted to talk about... often cutting me off mid-sentence. I have heard many good things about NYMC (such great location, faculties, and cooperative atmosphere) but the interview day left a negative impression. This was the only school where the visit made me rethink my decision to attend the school. I was offered an acceptance but will likely withdraw soon." Report Response
