What impressed you positively?

"Just about everything! I loved USC... didn't know that much about it before really. The staff at the admissions office were very very nice. The students who gave us the tour were very nice. The interviewers were very nice. The interviewees were all awesome... they do a great job at selecting them (if i may say so). Lecture hall was excellent, student lounge was cool. Hospital treats a lot of the indigent population - which is good for my purposes. Student body is diverse. The cafeteria in the hospital is all you can eat, for 2.8 dollars! There's more, but i don't remember right now." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interview was with a med student. Really nice kid, friendly, conversational, and would warn me about the questions which were supposed to be hard. He seemed to like the school a lot. My second interview was with a faculty member. She was very easy to talk to and appeared genuinely interested in knowing me. She also told me a lot about the school. The interviews were not confrontational and very low stress. I actually had a really good time during my visit and if I get in, I'm going there!" Report Response
