What impressed you positively?

"The medical center itself is amazing. The tour of the heart hospital was impressive. We were actually allowed in the observatory dome of an OR during surgery." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Disorganization and disinterest of interviewers at times. All interviews take place in faculty members' offices. So after finding the office in the maze of color coded hallways, my first interviewer treated me like an annoyance; seldomly making eye contact, didn't shake my hand, asked vague questions, sighed...a nightmare come true. I confirmed with a fellow interviewee that they received similar treatment from the person. My second interview was much better and more laid back, but still seemed disorganized. Overall, my interview felt like trivial in regards to my interviewers." Report Response
