What impressed you positively?

"the students do seem to truly enjoy their school. apparently the so-called "party school" of med schools. good social area, nice new hospital too. also saw my first cadaver, sans arms/legs/head." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"actual classrooms are horrible. they didn't even want to show them to us until we pestered them in the end. also, financial aid is just about nonexistent. they essentially told us that the only way to survive this school is if you join the military." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that it would be so low-key/not a big deal. also, student population is largely nontraditionals and minorities. (a lot of older people with families, etc. also, apparently 2 nuns. not anything bad, just interesting demographics.)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"a ridiculous waste of time. interview process is not taken seriously by either student or faculty interviewers. student talked about himself the whole time and faculty was a very sweet old man but seemed a bit confused. asked no med-school related questions and gave me candy in the end. threw out random questions and allowed approx 5 seconds for each response, saying "hooray! i'm going home early today!" i don't think either interviewers/interviewee made much of an impression on each other."
