"Admissions staff were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, organized. Interviewers were relaxed and friendly. The school is apparently responsive to student demands for changes in courses, clinical experiences, etc.." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Minimal lunch, no morning snacks or drinks or anything - eat a good breakfast or get a coffee at Starbucks across the street (you will have time between interviews to do so). The school is finally undertaking overdue curriculum changes, but the class of 2004 will be caught midway through the curriculum change AND midway through the campus change. This will be an awkward first 2 years." Report Response
