What impressed you positively?

"Surprisingly, I was impressed by a lot! I know a lot of people are turned off by the dorm-style environment, but I personally love that most of the class lives right on campus! I got a community vibe while I was there. And of course the anatomy lab is beautifullllllll. Love the natural light, and I couldn't smell an ounce of formaldehyde because of the amazing ventilation system. The whole inside of the school is beautiful really! I was probably so impressed because I didn't expect to like the school, since I'm such an urbanite. But then I realized that as long as I have a car, I'd love it there! If I'm too broke for a car then it's a whole other story..a really bad story but let's stay positive. Oh and I'm interested in Neurology so hearing the Associate Dean talk so much about neuroscience and neurologic rotations made me happy! Havent really heard much about Neuro at other schools. Oh and this was seriously the BEST interview lunchI've had so far. Those wraps were delicious! And we had cake at the end of the day ^_^" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location of course. I have a very broad edition of rural so, yeah.... I'd still love to go there as long as I have a car. Pretty sure I'd miserable without one. I mean a 10 min drive to groceries isn't far?!? I'm used to driving 3 minutes hah. Also the price/average graduate debt of the school is pretty scary and I am not sure if it would be worth it without a scholarship. Also wish my day was more structured/led since I was in the last Circuit, but it's not like we were waiting around for an hour at all. We had to find our way to a 2nd yr lecture and that was a bit tricky, but because of the lecture we were busy so I can't complain." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hmm...that the MMI would be EXTREMELY chill. Sounds intimidating when they explain the whole process to you, but it goes by really fast. Love MMIs more than traditional interviews now!" Report Response
