What are your general comments?

"Overall, my experience at USC was great. The tour was informative and the students that led the tour were very helpful and friendly. The facilities are good and the hospital is great. You would definitely have great clinical experiences at USC since it's in downtown LA. Lunch was good (I had chinese chicken salad). The student interviewer actually asked harder questions than the faculty interviewer, but both were pretty relaxing. " Report Response
