What impressed you positively?

"I was amazed at the amount of opporunities for clinical work, even in the first year, through the LCP program, at several hospitals. The students were enthusiastic and seemed very happy. The faculty was noted for doing all they could to help students succeed, and we were invited to attend class and see the gross anatomy labs. Everyone was EXTREMELY nice; I haven't received such wonderful treatment at any other school. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with a student, who was extremely complimentary of my record, and felt like I had made a new friend. That was their "alpha" (academic) interview, and I had been expecting to be grilled. The Ph.D interviewer was a little more tough on me, but he wrote down almost every word I said. I could tell that he really wanted to get a total picture of me to present to the rest of the committee." Report Response
