What are your general comments?

"I loved the school. It's a systems based approach so you have a smooth transition from the first 2 years to the clinical rotations. I stayed with a first-year student before my interview. Defintely take up the offer because you get an insider's look at the school. I even got to go to a class. It was a huge interview group- about 20. So far, they say that 5 interview groups have been through the process- the final class will be around 230ish out of the 550 interviewed. THe chances are pretty good but I don't want to jinx myself. Plenty of hospitals in the area to get experience and preceptorship opportunities. They are setting up a new research facility for next year. Housing is very affordable. I would definitely go if I get accepted. " Report Response
