What are your general comments?

"Overall, I walked away from this interview feeling dissappointed in the school. I am not impressed solely by its reputation, whereas I feel that the majority of the people interviewing and attending the school are. These people really think way too highly of themselves, not something I am looking for in a medical school. I have not seen that at any of the other top medical schools that I have interviewed at." -Posted 01/24/2003 | Report Response
