What impressed you positively?

"The new simulation lab is awesome. They have the most sim. bodies in the country (16) and they really seem to have a great program going to get students to use them in a helpful way. The faculty was really nice and the students were all very friendly and spoke very highly of the school. Also, Pittsburgh seems like a great place to live despite it's reputation. " Report Response

"The tour was given by someone in admissions and she hurried along without talking much about what we were seeing. All of the interviewees were there early but the admissions staff wasn't there till just after 8, so don't bother getting there early! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UPitt has a great program going for it. It combines lecture with PBL and the students all seem to like the curriculum. The Simulation Lab is great and will be a huge benefit to students (and patients!). The faculty was great, the students were encouraging and seemed to feel they were getting the best education out there. The UPitt hospital seems to be top notch and there is more construction going on to make new research buildings. You have a student interview, a faculty interview and then a quick meeting with a Dean. I was very pleasantly surprised with UPitt. " Report Response
