"Tell me about the article you read. I am still trying to figure this whole thing out.

What impressed you positively?

"The city was bigger than I thought, clinical experience starts in the first year. The way any of my doubts were removed during the interview. There is prosection, it was explained to me and doesnt seem like it will be that much different. The different pathways of learning, and what to expect." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They told us the total snow fall for the previous winter was 150 inches. The cafeteria has a very small selection... I didnt find that many problems with the school, and thus I am resorting to weather and food as my answer to this question." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew it was cold up in Erie, I wish I knew it was going to be that cold." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Reading up on this webpage many people make the school sound scary. Mandatory attendance, dress code (ties required daily). After interviewing I realized you have to wear a tie everyday as a doctor, and during your rotation and residency. They are just getting you adjusted for that. Mandatory attendance... thats not really a bad thing. While most people spent about 20 minutes in their interview, I spent about 40. If you have questions / comments share them and you will find the staff are really nice and usually will be able to make you see things in a way you had not prior to the interview. " Report Response
