What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The large group of interviewee was rather intimidating. Jefferson is affiliated with 18 hospitals for clinical rotations!! Used to rank #1 as a "comprehensive medical school" back in the 90's, not sure what that means though" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were relaxed, and the student interview was basically to determine whether you're "socially competent", according to my student interviewer. This is one of those schools that care about students and has strong emphasis on clinical care rather than research. The only thing that holds me back is the old conservative feeling of Philadelphia." Report Response
