What impressed you positively?

"the interviewer seemed really happy to have me there and the students were excited about their school, obviously the clinical experience is amazing, students said they had delivered babies, scrubbed in for tubal ligations, and the surgeon i interviewed with said he would walk a student through an appendectomy if they were interested! awesome! plus, the facilities didn't seem that bad for me, and the area is not terrible, i felt totally safe walking around in my suit and looking like a white boy from the suburbs. eh, i'm used to cities though, so i guess it depends on your own experiences."

What are your general comments?

"it was overall very positive, i guess i was feeling a bit down on the school because of all the negative comments, but i think now that those may just be spoiled kids who aren't used to some of the realities of life or interested in underserved populations. the interviewer was great and said that i should get in, and let me ask all the questions i wanted. he tried to answer honestly, and it seemed to me that he did. cool school, unless you want to gimp out into some overpaid underworked uberspecialty."
