"I'm not a big fan of Philadelphia; the students seemed a little pretentious and condescending; our tour consisted of mostly looking at the outside of buildings and the hospital cafeteria." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The new curriculum allows students to focus on one subject at a time rather than juggling the normal 3-4. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day is very low-key. The student interview is very short and is more about you asking them questions. The faculty interview follows the tour so that your guide can point out the building to which you have to go. After the faculty interview there is an informal wrap-up session with refreshments where you can introduce yourself to Grace Hershman, the admissions director, as well as talk with current students and your fellow interviewees.
