What impressed you positively?

"The prestige, and the top public health/disparities programs - but literally nothing else..." -Posted 12/19/2010 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Very "stuffy" atmosphere of the students, and elitist attitude, interview group was a good combo of elitists from the west coast and poindexters from the east coast. BALTIMORE, the dorms are absolutely atrocious, really can't walk around anywhere." -Posted 12/19/2010 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was debating on going in the first place due to the area it was in, but I figured I'd have to see for myself. It's as bad as they say it is, and probably wouldn't have gone if I did know that." -Posted 12/19/2010 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Faculty Interviewer: Repeatedly yawned in front of me during the interview and dressed in sweats. Clearly didn't want to be there. Student Interviewer: Meh, just got the general vibe he didn't like me - I felt like he thought I wasn't interesting The Waiting Room: You ARE critqued by interviewers while waiting in the waiting room and talking with them. I don't care what anyone says - it DOES inherently create an awkward and artificial tone. Overall, really only the prestige, and maybe the public health/disparities side is intriguing. New curriculum seemed good also, but that's it. Interviewed at several other elite schools, and only school where admissions staff and tour guides were openly obnoxious. Really just did not like it here - not a good fit at all." -Posted 12/19/2010 | Report Response
