What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were pretty laid back. the atmosphere is not very competitive. also, the classrooms are wired, lectures are taped and can be found on cd-rom as well. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the size of the lecture halls, classrooms, and buildings. the buildings don't really look very modern. also, the study areas are very small. i don't know if this is because i'm used to attending a big school, but i didn't feel comfortable in such a small school. what's even more unappealing is that despite the size of the school, the entering class is huge. the cafeteria is teeny, the gym is pathetic, and they've got 5 (i repeat 5) microscopes for students to use for anatomy class. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"the interview was really laid back. there are two interviewers who interview you individually. i was first interviewed by an anatomy professor who was EXTREMELY cool. he was lying back in his chair with his hands behind his head. he also had a pretty good sense of humor. after my first interview, i had about 30 minute wait before my next one, with a physician. the physician seemed a bit more serious, but his interview was extremely short. he seemed to have looked at my accomas application more than the anatomy prof. after my interviews, i had to wait till the rest of the interviewees completed theirs as well. we then were given a brief tour of the campus and had lunch."
