What impressed you positively?

"illustrious faculty, top notch research, students seemed genuinely happy about just about everything except for the crappy location; housing prices are really cheap; the story is that it is not really competitive amongst students anymore; opportunities and resources abound; inner harbor and fells point areas are nice, otherwise the whole city is an enormous ghetto, the city is pretty much dead by 11 o clock at night" -Posted 01/15/2008 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The tour was nice, there is a ripped Jesus on steroids statue in the bell tower area. We got sent to a lounge area and then were pulled out for interviews. One is a 15 minute closed file with a 4th yr med student. The other is a 45 minute open file with a faculty member. Sitting in the lounge and chatting with the 4th yr meds. By then, we already had so much opportunity to ask questions that we mostly talked about social stuff" -Posted 01/15/2008 | Report Response
