What impressed you positively?

"The block exams - an exam covers all three classes of the semester into one long exam (3-6 hrs). But you have the week off to prepare for the exam. Nice gym too. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing - everyone was friendly including interviewers. No 'grilling' interviews though one asked many random questions (see above)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good experience. I had an atypical experience since I wasnt asked typical interview questions. One interviewer asked me no more than 2 questions before going on a tangent about his frustrations with today's healthcare policy. Know that all three interviews (1 regional, 2 on-campus) are weighted equally. But other students I spoke with had typical questions that are on this website. " Report Response
