What impressed you negatively?

"the campus is going through a time of transition - moving to mission bay, which in a few years will be awesome, but while i'm there it may be a bit of a logistical mess. its something that will get worked out as you go though - so it shouldn't be that much of a problem (so i'm telling myself). secondly - the public vs private school thing shows - they don't have the much money to through at you - but it depends what your priorities are. if you are an independent/self motivated person - this is the place for you.

What are your general comments?

"look at the impressed section - it was a great relaxing couple days. the first day was 2 med school interviews - both were really chill. the are CLOSED(blind) interviews - while your mstp are not. basicaly you have to reconstruct yourself as an applicant since they don't know anything aobut you - and also come across as a good person etc... its a good thing. there are 4 mstp interviews - 2 committee members and 2 faculty. committee is of course the most important. they interview 60-70, and accept 12 outright, and 12 on the waitlist. there only main competitors for the program are cornell/tri-institutional, harvard and hopkins. so its pretty tight. happy people.
