What impressed you positively?

"students seemed incredibly happy across the board, even just while we were waiting for the day to start, many (completely unaffiliated with the tour/interview day) came up to us to give us encouragement/advice and told us how much they liked the school; also, the school seems to be headed in the right direction--the new curriculum seems to be a significant improvement over the "traditional" curriculum (it was just fully implemented for the first-year class) and it's cool because of early clinical exposure (start rotations 2nd semester 2nd year)--in addition to the fact that they're constructing a brand new medical school facility" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the fact that it seems that construction will be ongoing while our entering class would be there; the current facilities are a little dated" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that the holiday inn i stayed at was under construction, so the banging of hammers until 9pm and starting at 7 am sucked, particularly since the interview didn't start until 11:15: DON'T STAY AT THE HOLIDAY INN!! (who says consumers can't have a say?)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"all in all, a very pleasant experience. the school impressed me moreso than i thought it would and it's now in my top 4. the students love the place and i got a good vibe from the faculty/administration in that i feel they really care about their students. once the construction is complete, they'll have beautiful facilities."
