What impressed you positively?

"I was interviewed by a physician that was new to the school who has been a residency director in a competitive field for 10 years. Seems like they have put together an impressive faculty. All cadavers are CT scanned before being dissected, all imaging is available one flat screens at end of dissection table. Facilities are beautiful, would be a nice environment to study in. Admissions committee is honest, up front on policy, and say it like it is. Dean German has a huge vision and it is being realized. A lot has already happened and a lot is going to happen in coming years. Good amount of prep time for step 1." Report Response
