What impressed you positively?

"Absolutely nothing..Quick turn-around between interview and acceptance I guess." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers themselves (who would be your professors!) were incredibly rude, pretended to fall asleep while I was answering their questions (then would quickly open up one eye to look and see if this agitated me), and just had an overall negative and accusatory edge/attitude in the tone and way in which they spoke to me. The tour and whole entire interview day was very disorganized, as if they threw this whole thing together last minute or something. Clinical rotations are not even in the city, most are in NJ which sounds like a pain. School seemed pretty dead and dreary during the tour, as there were no students around and this was not during a winter break." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The day was disorganized and ran over an hour late." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As a few others - who must have had the same interviewers as I did - have mentioned, I thought this went beyond a typical stress interview. For a fairly new school with no real reputation, this just left me with a very poor impression of the school and I have no desire to study here with such faculty." Report Response
