What impressed you positively?

"The school was beautiful and it was in a great area. I liked that it was on the same campus as the undergrads so there was a lot to do. We got a great tour of the hospital and after the interview day you are left with a great perspective of how the rotations will be like." -Posted 12/08/2012 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They said they had pass/fail but some of the students said they implement a curve that a certain number of students have to fail. They don't record lectures, instead there's a student run system of getting the audio and notes which you have to pay for. Also, the tour didn't focus very much on the facilities for the pre-clinical years, instead it was heavily focused on the hospitals. and the students all seemed to commute to campus which isn't something I'm particularly excited about." -Posted 12/08/2012 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much the length of the day would affect me. I had interviews in the morning so by the time that I got to the tour in the afternoon, I was so tired/sleepy that I didn't really get to enjoy it as much as with other schools. Also, in the group interview if your answer's too long the interviewer will tell you to skip ahead and get to the point. Also, make sure to have something ready for the random fact about yourself that they do at the beginning of interview day." -Posted 12/08/2012 | Report Response
