What impressed you positively?

"the wonderful interviewers (esp this asian girl - shelly? she was cute!), friendly interviewees, and the campus wasnt nearly as bad as i had imagined - actually the new health science building is quite nice. overall, you could tell this school really cares about its students; its more personal. i'm going to another school for location, but i was really impressed by the people and the school and wish i could go to this one for those reasons alone. plus they give you bottled water and cool pens!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the location - stockton leaves more to be desired for those who care about that kind of thing. that said, its a decent sized town though and not as desolate as i'd previously thought. another is the opportunity for research. while a great pharm school, its not the biggest in research - which i care about. but thats just me."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that stockton has everything you need. i packed way too much unnecessary junk." Report Response
