It seems like they are all similarly ranked. Does anyone have any thoughts, personal experiences or info as to why would one choose one over the other?

Heh, NYU is filled with biznatches. No wonder so many have killed themselves by jumping over the ledge in their library =P

I've been to Einstein and Mt. Sinai so far and I liked Sinai a lot. It has a great location, excellent facilities, nice students, and really cool technology.

NYU is in the most ridiculously tight part of New York and I hear the class schedule is relatively chill. I would go to NYU before any other school, hands down. But you gotta be down with living smack-dab in the middle of NYC.

Sorry, but not funny :thumbdown: (from someone coming from NYU, this was a big tragedy on our campus)

To the OP: If given a choice I would definitely choose Sinai. Everyone who goes there ends up loving it. It's called "Camp Sinai" for a reason -- they really hold your hand.

we all have some differences, but overall, all 3 of our schools are considered equivalent. So rank is not something you should use to decide between us. It'll be everything else :laugh:

I interviewed there a bit ago, the school is at 30th and 1st in midtown Manhattan. I traveled by train cause that's the easiest way to get from c'ville VA to NYC and Penn station is not far away from the med school at all. I stayed in a hotel that was pretty close, the Arlington I think it was called (it was a comfort inn), at something like 25th and 5th. It was $190 a night, but was the cheapest I found within walking distance. The interview itself is pretty short, around 30min max, and it's just the one interview. No tough questions, just pretty relaxed and conversational. They have a tour of the medschool area (dorms, classrooms, anatomy lab, etc) you get lunch, and then there's a tour of Bellvue hospital (get to see the ER etc). My student tour guide got a bit lost in Bellevue, but aside from that it was a pretty good (and fairly short) day. My interview was at 9:15am and I was done by 2pm, got to enjoy NYC for the rest of the afternoon.

which one do you go to? what is the 'talk' about the 3 schools? what kind of students go to each school? (feel free to PM me if its an answer you would be more comfortable writing in private).

thanks so much

If you are an out of state applicant for NYU, what are the chances for getting an acceptance?
