What impressed you negatively?

"Not much around in terms of grocery stores, food, bars, things to do... The tuition increases by ~9,000 dollars from second year to third year! Two of the first years who came to talk to us said that they leave the school at 8pm, study until 2am! I don't know if this is the norm or if they are just crazy. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was pretty relaxing and the interviewers were very nice. I had an interview with a 4th year med student first so that loosened me up a little and then another one with faculty in the afternoon. We got a tour in between, be prepared for a lot of walking, especially once it gets cold and windy. " Report Response
