The tour was long but I was impressed with their facilities. Most of the hospitals are interconnected. Plus it's in a pretty good area of Pittsburgh." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Definitely my favorite med school so far (I've already had 4 interviews.) Well organized day; they kept us busy. Gave us a lot of information. Met with students and faculty. Plenty of things to do in the area also. Just a note: neither the student or faculty interview has your file. The student has nothing at all; the faculty member has a copy of your personal statement and your hometown and college. That's it. Then there's a final 15-minute "meeting" with one of the Deans. Very low stress." Report Response
