What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"Their disorganization. I was not scheduled to interview with one POI, while the other mentor I interviewed with had no idea I wanted to work with him. After hearing I did, he didn't even acknowledge it. He just made a face and never asked a pertinent follow-up question, like "Why?" or "Well, what are your research interests?" Overall, I felt deceived and injured by their invitation to interview, when clearly no one there had any interest in me as a candidate. I hope others have a different experience, and that admissions becomes more mindful in the future." More from this Member | Report Response

"The responses of the students to questions about clinical work. There was no emphasis on ESTs." More from this Member | Report Response

"Only a portion of the students receive funding. Not all professors run an active lab and therefore not all students have office space. The facilities and program space weren't very attractive. The university is somewhat inconvenient to reach by public transportation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing that I can remember" More from this Member | Report Response

"A little casual? " More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities were not the nicest or prettiest" More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great research with the faculty on ESTs, but that does not translate to the clinical training." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I really did enjoy the school and the experience of visiting it. It was a nerve-wracking experience just because it was an interview - but the faculty, staff, and current students were so nice, that it made the overall experience very enjoyable" More from this Member | Report Response
