What impressed you negatively?

"Alot. The interviewers were both late and the faculty interviewer seemed intent on asking irrelevant psychoanalytical questions. Madison is a extremely cold and dull city. No student parking will be provided at the new med school they are building so be prepared to take the bus!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How bad this school actually is. It fulfills any and all stereotypes you may have about Wisconsin." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was extremely disappointed in this school and expected much more. The city is boring and cold, the students seem disinterested, and the overall experience was borderline depressing (I actually saw a rat running around during the tour!) The curriculum also leaves much to be desired as they ship many students off to isolated/desolate parts of northern Wisconsin during 3rd and 4th year rotations. The new building is not exclusive to the med students as it will house nursing and PA programs as well. No parking will be provided for students. Overall, it seems like a depressing place to spend 4 years. I wouldn't wish the place upon my worst enemy." Report Response
