What impressed you positively?

"The student body is a wonderfully dynamic group of people who were all quick to come up to the interviewees, talk to us, and bring us around with them. Dean Piscano originally told us how proud he was of his student body, and after the day I felt that he had all right to be. Their embryology museum, which they tout as being the biggest in the US, was incredibly cool. The reasonably priced dorms, which were directly attached to the school allowing you to fall out of bed, throw on a pair of scrubs, and crawl (if you’re so inclined) to class. Also, if you happen to interview with their Chaplin feel extra lucky- he’s a super great guy. My student interviewer took me up to their new laparoscopic surgery teaching suit which had state of the art computer virtual reality setups to help teach students laparoscopic dexterity before they were in surgery bumbling around in front of an attending. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A long and hot but incredibly enjoyable experience. While I thought the city was sorta dirty the food was great and there’s no lack of interesting things to do. The facilities were similar to most places (except that their anatomy lab is several small rooms instead of one big one) and their students were significantly better than any other that I had met. Definitely propelled the school to the top of my list." Report Response
