What impressed you positively?

"The students are awesome (as well as the staff!). I would advice anyone who is going out to Touro to stay an extra day (or even after the interview) to go to classes/labs with the students. You really get a taste of what the school is like and you get to meet the students and get their feedback about the school. The facilities are very nice too- the labs and even the classrooms." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The dorms are okay, but after living in an apartment with a kitchen it would be hard to live on campus without one. Ask a student to take you up to the dorms if you have time. Also- there is no such thing as a meal plan- there is no cafeteria- only a small cafe (ask the students)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The connection of between the medical school and the community is very weak. The school is having a hard time trying to make its presence known to the people who live in Vallejo." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although a group interview sounds scary, it was actually more relaxing. You get to know the fellow candidates during the morning so that by the time you reach the interview you feel at ease with them in the room. Also it is very interesting to hear what other people had done that had gotten them to that point. The interviewers were nice and tried to make you feel comfortable by talking to you like they were really interested." Report Response
