First of all, HAPPY HALLOWEEN SDNers!!!!! Okay, now to the main topic of the morning. I have received bad vibes from NYU all along...from the unwarranted annoyance they demonstrated toward me when I requested an application via phone (I'd submitted the form online...but after a month & 1/2 I still had not received the application), to the tone in their brochures, which basically screamed, "Don't you DARE call us with questions, you schleps!!!" I found it odd that this was the only med school that didn't provide an e-mail address. A few days ago I called the admissions office to schedule an interview, and I was greeted with this: "Okay MorningLight, what day were you thinking?" ME: "Would November 14th be possible?" " What? Aren't you in NY?" ME: "Yes...." "Then can't you come in this week?" ME: "No, I'm sorry, I'm afraid that I can't." "At all? Not one day out of the entire week? I mean, you're just uptown." ME: "I'm very sorry, but I have class from 10:30 until as late as 7:30 every day, and I'm in the middle of midterm exams. My schedule just doesn't allow me to squeeze things in without some sort of advance." (*huffs an irritated sigh*)"Well, come in this Saturday then. Surely you can do that?" Now why on earth should they treat their applicants with so much disrespect? Has anyone had similar experiences? I sincerely hope that the attitude of their admissions office isn't reflective of the school!!!!
