Just got an interview to NYU. Definitely wasnt expecting this so I am so excited. Anyone got any good information on the school/their interview/the city?
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.
