What are your general comments?

"The interviews were pretty laid back, jst standard questions. The school is very open and honest about their intentions. They tell you exactly how things are going to work and want you to come only if this place is for you. They talk a lot (maybe too much) about getting time towards retirement and the amt you'll earn as a med student (They pay you 43k). After today, I am definitely considering this as a very serious possibility. If you interview here, take advantage of the open door policy. Everyone here is REALLY happy to be where they are and will gladly spent time to talk to you. I spent over one hour just chatting about military medicine and the options it offers with one of the Deans and 20-30 mins with several others. Get a good night's rest the night before because the 1st 3 hrs of the process you are being "briefed" on what you are getting yourself into." Report Response
