What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was a pathologist in the childrens hospital, so he gave me a tour of his lab. It was pretty impressive!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A lot of the school was under construction, so we did not get to see the library. Also, the facilities seemed a little old." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school has a pretty shady area around it which I might not feel 100% comfortable living around. But the students said that it was not that bad, although it takes a bit getting used to. Also, the school tries hard to make the buildings secure (ie card access) and as safe as possible." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was VERY laid back and ended up being like more of a conversation than a firing back and forth of questions and answers. I had a great time here and am seriously considering this school as a potential possibility. The children's hospital is great, so if you are considering Peds, this would be a great place to go. Dont stress... the interview was not stressful at all!" Report Response
