What impressed you positively?

"The Charity hospital system. Sure, the hospitals are run down and old and not in particulary nice parts of the city, but it'll remind you why you wanted to go into medicine in the first place - it's free for LA residents" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students were not as great as has been touted from Tulane. I think the faculty were much more pleasant than the majority of the students I met - one anatomy professor even came out of his lab to speak with another interviewer and I." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Come prepared with questions. During the orientation in the beginning of interview day, Dr. Pisano sat us all down and gave his little schpiel and then said "OK, now ask me questions" and literally sat there for an hour while people tried to come up with whatever kinds of questions they could muster <as none of us seemed prepared for it>. Also, if you interview with Dr. Pisano <I did>, it will be open-file. Expect this if you have something questionable on your application that needs to be addressed during the course of the interview (e.g. poor grades, poor section on the mcat, etc.)" Report Response
