What impressed you positively?

"The school has great facilities and a seemingly outstanding anatomy department. I think the best part of the interview day was how many students I met. They were at our breakfast, tour, lunch, and many just stopped by to talk to us while we were waiting around for our interviews!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a really great interview day, and it was nice to be able to talk to so many students who were willing to talk candidly about the school. The interview was not stressful at all--interestingly the interviewers were an MD/MPH, MD, PhD, and DO. The facilities were really amazing, and it seems like their curriculum is very good. Overall great school!" Report Response
