What impressed you positively?

"The friendly atmosphere (feels like a family!), the warmth of the students, the way in which the school seems very receptive to student needs. The faculty appear to be quite accessible, and the degree to which the doctor-patient relationship is emphasized is awesome! Also, everyone seemed to be very honest about the school's strengths and weakenesses." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Still unsure about the community campuses. Would they really all provide equal clinical experience? Also, wish we could have seen a few more of the facilities during the tour, but that would have meant a hike partway across campus. The facilities we did see were nice (coincidence?)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all, this was a great day! Nicely structured, very welcoming, very informative. Probably could have done without the curriculum overview (the paperwork was pretty self-explanatory), but the introduction from the Dean was great! It was nice being interviewed one-on-one by a student, and I'm impressed with the fact that students have so much input on who's accepted. The emphasis on "personal fit" with the school is great as well. I would definitely rate MSU at the top of my list!" Report Response
