What impressed you positively?

"The campus, facilities and location were awesome. The administration are very receptive to the students..case in point..adding on to the library and the construction of a cafeteria at the request of the students. I was also impressed with the ambition of the students, faculty and administrators. They strive for the best in test scores, clinical experience and residency matching. Very good stuff." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The price is enormous. They predict around $50,000 per year for all expenses. The gross anatomy lab was cool in that it had about 8 plasma screen tv's, but it was located in what I considered just another classroom. Didn't seem to be well ventilated or cooled. The on student housing for singles was also a little small and not every room had washers/dryers or dish washers. Don't get me wrong though, there were very few negatives about this school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had heard about how relaxed the interiews were, but there was still a lot of nerves on my part. The interview was so laid back though, that I felt like a loser for feeling all knotted up. Everyone came out smiling and very happy with their interview. " Report Response
