What impressed you positively?

"The facilities, the students, the location (Boston is a great city!), how down-to-earth the staff, students and faculty are. Also the staff are VERY well organized as far as helping to orient you and get you where you need to go on interview day. Some interviews are at Mass General and the other local hospitals. The staff provides directions and taxi vouchers to whatever locations your interviews are held." -Posted 11/21/2006 | Report Response

"Nothing =)" -Posted 11/21/2006 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"My interviewers' credentials! On the interview schedule you are given, the interviewers (mine were both medical faculty) were only listed as MDs. I came to find out -- during the interviews -- that both interviewers had additional degrees. It would have been helpful to know so that I could have planned more questions for my interviewers since I am interested in MD/MPH (my first one also had an MPH but I did not realize this until the end of the interview)." -Posted 11/21/2006 | Report Response
