What impressed you positively?

"The students were very nice and they were very straight forward with their answers, including their likes and dislikes of the school. The school makes a concerted effort to have the applicants meet as many medical students, professors, and staff members through pizza parties, luncheons, etc. I felt that I gained a good overall sense of what the school is like from these people. Finally, the people I met were extremely helpful and most of them gave me their contact information in case I had any further questions. " Report Response
