What are your general comments?

"I loved UHS!! I felt very comfortable all day and enjoyed the whole experience. My student tour guides were very informative,friendly, and enthusiastic. I got the impression that if you have an interview they really want you and just want to see if you have a personality that fits with their school. Getting measured for your white coat right before the interview was a real confidence booster. I got the feeling that the school is making an effort to make the medical school experience very special and unique for their students. Because of my great experience with UHS it remains one of my top choices." Report Response
