What are your general comments?

"Two, half-hour interviews, one by a doc/alum and one by a medical school student. It was difficult to call them interviews--much more like conversations. The student that I visited with went above and beyond, answering questinos and, if he couldn't, he made sure to show me who could give me all the answers I needed. Very laid back and friendly, short and to the point, and everyone is very down-to-earth. In terms of education and medical opportunities, very impressive. The campus is friendly, Omaha seems to grow on people, and programs going to S America/India sound great. I would go there without hesitation, but the high tution (private school) makes me waver. If you can swallow the big loans, you'll, love it." Report Response
