What are your general comments?

"Group orientation followed by an interview with a medical school rep. She was difficult because a research background seemed to be a bad thing in her eyes. She only wanted clinical experiences - weird. Then, a meeting with a PhD. and off to lunch with a very nice M.D., Ph.D. student. Then, a meeting with the director and off to 4 meetings with Ph.D.s who were often new to the school. The interviewers were very nice but too new to Drexel to comment on the school. Then, the thing wrapped up with a pizza party." Report Response
