What impressed you positively?

"CHKD is definitely sweet. Students seemed, for the most part, kind and informative." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewers were completely poker-faced. I left the interview feeling like there was no way I could possibly get in after stating that abortion was morally wrong. Retroanalysis of this interview was not helpful. there were plenty of cadavers for the anatomy class. These, however, looked like they had been trashed in the learning process. " Report Response
