What are your general comments?

"Amazing place, really dedicated to their students and to making their school a better place. The students are great and are very happy there, many came up to us before the interview and asked how we were doing etc. It's a small town so if you like cities then it's probably not the best place for you but their patient catchment is much larger than most city hospitals because there are so few facilities around, ie they all go to Hershey. It was my first interview so it was a little stressful but they try to sell the school to you. If you get an interview there you have a very high chance of getting in." Report Response
