What impressed you positively?

"JHU seemed to really encourage both research (clinical and basic) as well as clinical work. All the students commented on the excellent teaching skills of faculty and residents. The old hospital, now the administration building, is beautiful, especially at night. A majority of the students I met had participated in research or rotations abroad.

What impressed you negatively?

"Reed hall was the worst dorm I've ever stayed at, and I've been in a lot of dorms. Don't stay there because it will bias you against the school. The part of the hall where interviewees stay is composed of single rooms that are really nasty. The medical school students all stay in a different wing that is composed of suites. The suite section was marginally better than the singles but still not very nice. Half of the first year class usually stays in Reed Hall. After that, people live elsewhere. Because the neighborhood is bad, students don't live near the school, but have to communte about 20 minutes every day if they don't live in Reed. " -Posted 10/05/2002 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good interview. Lunch was excellent, the tour was also good. I found the waiting period with fourth years to be pretty low stress and informative. The student interview was closed-file and lasted about 15 minutes. The faculty interview was wonderful, open-file, and lasted about 45 minutes. " -Posted 10/05/2002 | Report Response
