What impressed you positively?

"The tour of the medical school--I really liked some of the aspects of the program they described, such as the 'pregnant patient' program, where you attend check-ups for a pregnant patient, and if there is enough time, present for the birth; after the baby is born, you attend all of the child's checkups. You can also opt for a geriatric patient, and I think they said there was a new third option, but I forget. Oh yeah, and the food in the cafeteria was really good!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This interview was at the medical school, and conducted by Dr. McCoy, but it was for the Pre-Professional Scholars program in Medicine. It's a program where incoming freshman to Case undergrad are conditionally admitted to medical school in four years, provided they maintain a 3.6 average and complete all the pre-med core classes. It was very laid-back and he wrote my answers down in his Palm Pilot." Report Response
