What impressed you positively?

"The new Assistant Dean of Admissions, Steven Case. If you have any serious questions about the medical school, ask him. Do not ask your M4 or your interviewers. He's only been in his position for 3 years, and he's making great strides to improve the school. He put up the web page (yes, MS only recently got a web site). He's published more pamphlets. Yes, MS only had a measly one page, 2-toned brochure before. And he can give you tangible answers on why MS might be a good education, in particular the direct interaction that M3s get with patients." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus could be much prettier. The facilities could be much nicer. The student body more diverse (in the lunch room, I saw, oh, one asian girl. nothing else. maybe they're hidden.). The social outlets more abundant. The hospital reasonably attractive. And the M4 could be more knowledgable." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't waste too much energy asking your M4 questions. If you want answers, hunt down a M1. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, a pleasant experience. The Admissions staff seems very pleasant and easy going. As the previous posting says, you have two interviewers and Dr. Case. He meets with you for 30 minutes to give you and intro. Then you have your one hour interviews with people on the admission's staff. At some point, you meet with an M4 to have lunch. That's not too exciting, so maybe you should eat a big breakfast. At the end, you have a one hour re-cap wtih Dr. Case. That's when he wants all your questions." Report Response
