How did you prepare for the interview?

"Case Western web site, student doctor" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is quite beautiful and the students very enthusiastic. The hands-on clinical experience sounded exciting. The doctors associated with Case and the Cleveland Clinic were very willing to stop and talk about the place. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Unfortunately, I had a very bad student hosting experience. I went in very enthusiastic despite never being in the midwest before. But the students I stayed with didn't help the image of Cleveland and really surprised me about the attitude of students on campus. Thankfully, I think they're exceptions and not the rule." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Just wished I had different hosts." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Most people were really enthusiastic about the school: students, profs, associated clinicians. School seems equally balanced with their clinical and research opportunities. But Cleveland is Cleveland and it's flat. Granted my hosts didn't really attempt to show me much but from what I saw there wasn't much around." Report Response
