What impressed you positively?

"The school really went out of their way to make us feel at home and at ease. It was obvious that they live by their motto: "Happy students succeed." Also, the admissions staff voluteer as mock patients for physicals, exams, etc. They have a lot of trust in the students they admit." Report Response

"Nothing really. The SDN site pretty much tells all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Despite the bad interviewer luck, I really, really, really liked this school. It's my number 1 pick now, and I found out that I got accepted a few days ago (YEAH!). They call you which is really nice. The coolest thing about this school was that the AMA visited them a couple years back to find out why their students perform better than most MD students on the USMLE...also, the anatomy dept. is in the top 1% of all med schools and the director of the anatomy dept. actually writes questions for the USMLE. Cool, eh?!" Report Response
