What impressed you negatively?

"school is kindof in the ghetto, the two-on-one interview was intimidating, especially because the doctor wouldn't look me in the face during the ENTIRE interview and the med student seemed more interested in impressing the doctor than interviewing me." Report Response

"The interviews are two-on-one." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was okay, the two-on-one interview structure threw me off (didn't read SDN in advance, shame on me!). The doctor interviewing me was a little gruff. Students don't really find their lectures imperative to attend, I don't know how I feel about that. Even though I felt pretty ambivalent about my interview experience, I still got in!
