What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I can't say enough wonderful things about this school. I won't even begin to list them here. Of all the schools I have seen, Harvard is definitely my first choice.

What are your general comments?

"Wow. MGH is a great place. The students were awesome. I played a pickup game of bball for a few hours before my interview (the night). I pretty much stayed with a bodybuilder (my student host). Sweet. The kids were down to earth. I have nothing but kind words for this school. This is the strongest medical school in the United States without question and arguably the world." -Posted 12/20/2003 | Report Response
