What impressed you positively?

"Students were amazingly laid-back. I really like the curriculm & option to take electives, not to mention the MedScholars program. The dean of admissions is so eloquent and approachable--seems like a really nice person. The admissions office people are too nice; faculty are very laid back and dignified. highest board scores/residency matches in the nation for 3 years' running! " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish there'd been a bit more structure to the day. At other interviews they seemed to go all out to explain the school's strengths, curriculm, etc. here the tour was very sparse--the students were in a rush to get to class even though they were very friendly. we ate lunch in the cafeteria, which was interesting...i feel like i didn't get to really know the school & its students as well as in other interviews. but it didn't matter b/c i was sold almost from the start anyway..."
