What impressed you positively?

" The friendliness of the admissions staff, in particular Dr. Haight. The anatomy lab, nice peaceful location, close to the water. I was very impressed by the caliber of the students I interviewed with - they were very accomplished and friendly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

" The fact that there is no med. center, the facilities were very sparce (although the anatomy lab was great). I really enjoyed Dr. Haight although it doesn't make sense that the school saves students money by not requiring a secondary if they don't stand a chance, but then they turn around and demand 2,000 dollars (non-refundable) to hold a place. It seems very hypocritical and a large burden to place on students when they know that we could be waiting on other schools." Report Response
