"Nothing. It is a small school with below average professors and curricula that tries to portray themselves with the likes of Harvard and Stanford med." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The professor interviewer seemed miffed that I was there. Myabe I was interupting his research. The student interviewer I was scheduled with didn't show up, so I ended up being interviewed by some other student that just happened to have some free time. The tour of the school was severly limited by the pathetically small campus." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"In state students are given more preference than is led to believe. In addition, this school will reject a perfectly good candidate just to see what he or she will do. I was rejected with a 30 MCAT and a 3.93 cummulative GPA and was accepted to University of Washington Medical School." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As far as medical schools go, this is an extremely small fish in a huge pond. The admissons committee has their priorities completely jumbled and it seems like they really don't know what they are looking for. Stay away from this one." Report Response
