What impressed you positively?

"The campus was beautiful, beautiful. The students were incredibly friendly, really laid-back, and seemed to genuinely like each other. I stayed with a 1st year student, who took me to a party (they had just had exams and were getting together to blow off steam)...not a rager, just a bunch of 1st years getting together to hang out. Gave me a great feel. The medical center is great-- the on-call rooms for medical students are a nice touch. Food wasn't bad. Interviews were really laid-back and conversational. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. Maybe that it gets cold, but there's so much to do outside (skiing, skating, etc.) that it doesn't strike me as a real detractor. Of course, I'm from the south so I don't know what winter's really like." Report Response
