What are your general comments?

"My interview was with a professor in the Dept. of Pharmacology. It was pretty low stress and conversational, and there weren't any surprises. The students were also helpful and enthusiastic, for the most part. The atmosphere felt pretty progressive to me, which I thought was great. While the MD/PhD programs also sound great, I have reservations about the MD/MPH program because of its lack of CEPH accreditation." Report Response
