What impressed you negatively?

"My heart skipped a beat when they told me tuition runs 60k the first year for out of staters. In addition, I'd have to become an Ohio resident to get a reasonable financial aid package. In addition...the catacombs. There are tunnels that connect all the parts of the med center...that kind of worries me because I imagine that they have some pretty rough winters over there. I can see myself becoming depressed in that setting." Report Response

"$60k out of state." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience was really chill and a lot of fun. Probably because the guys I was interviewing with were really cool. There were about 16th of us. They start you off with a few talks that are ok I guess. Then you have lunch with a few M1's and then get a tour of the campus. In general, the people there are really chill and really nice. Classes are a little big 200 for the first couple of years, but I don't think that's a huge problem because of small group PBL's and the approachability of the profs there. " Report Response
