What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are beautiful. The location is beautiful. I have never met so many happy people. I would be standing alone for no more than 30 seconds before a med student would come over and start talking to me about how much they loved their lives and how great Stanford is." -Posted 01/29/2008 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How isolated Stanford is from the outside world. It really is a tiny bubble that you have to drive out of to see anyone that isn't a Stanford student. Basically, if you go to Stanford be prepared to put your dating life on hold. The landscape is beautiful, the ladies are not." -Posted 01/29/2008 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The majority of students are on a 5 year plan. Financial aid pretty much sucks. When they talk about the massive reduced debt compared to other schools, you need to work as a researcher or TA that forces you to do 5 years." -Posted 01/29/2008 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"FIrst interview was with a student who was an MD/PHD. He was very nice and casual, but the fact that he was MD/PHD was annoying since he didn't know much about the Scholarly Concentration program, so he couldn't answer my questions. Faculty interviewer was great. Only asked a few tough questions. Both interviewers were very interested in my leadership experience. Also they both probed very deep into my answers. A lot of interviews are so short that you can just gloss over details on things, but they really prodded deep asking ''how/why'' frequently." -Posted 01/29/2008 | Report Response
