What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the brown/dartmouth program made the place that much more impressive and enticing. i couldn't do 4 years in hanover. but spending the first two years in hanover and then getting to go to providence (rated as the mose livable city in the US) for my clinical years....now that's a nice deal!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"great interview. very nice people. my first interview was open file...the second one was closed file. in the first interview i had a great rapport with the guy because his son went to my undergraduate school. he kept saying how impressed he is with folks that come from "X" school. that definately helped. he asked what i'm doing now. and then he threw some ethical questions at me. no problem."
