What impressed you negatively?

"Lunch could have been better. Other than that, not much :). I'm from Worcester, so I knew what to expect from the city." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class is very white, and I'm not sure that really reflects the applicant pool completely." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I'm quite familiar with the school -- I worked on and off in a lab there from junior year in high school to the summer before senior year of college, and I've also volunteered in the hospital. I've seen the facilities improve a great deal in that time, and it seems like they're investing a lot more money for the future. I don't there's anything to complain about on that front. The students I know who went/go there all loved it and are doing very well. The tuition is low and living expenses are not like the Boston area. Despite what people think, there's plenty to do in Worcester, not that you'll have a whole lot of time to party. In short, there's not much to complain about. Unless you're not a resident of Massachusetts. ;) My first interviewer was a bit tough to read, but my second interview went much better. Going off campus isn't such a big deal unless it's really cold that day." Report Response
