What impressed you negatively?

"Baltimore is quite slummy and the med center is in the heart of it. They have police on campus so it's safe there but don't wander more than a block outside the safe zone." -Posted 04/02/2003 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are two options for getting to campus. If you're brave and it's daytime, take the light rail to the civic center and then the subway to the med center (see an earlier post for details). They're $1.35 each. Otherwise, you can take the shuttle to the marriott ($18 round trip, $11 one-way) and then a cab ($5-7). " -Posted 04/02/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really impressed by everything there and I'm convinced that the opportunities outweigh the bad weather (compared to Cali) and the bad neighborhoods. Also you eat lunch with faculty and students who aren't on the admissions committee and they give you soft drinks all day long, which is cool. The big scary room with the 4th year interviews isn't as bad as it sounds, either. " -Posted 04/02/2003 | Report Response
