What impressed you positively?

"The school is so friendly. Everyone I encountered, from the Dr Myers (the asst. dean) to staff, was extremely friendly and helpful. The whole campus is modern with very nice lecture halls, a student lounge, computers everywhere for student use, nice labs, free parking, a great fitness center, and a new testing center. The new testing center is amazing. It is one of eight in the country housed at a medical school that meets the requirements for the USMLE. The tour of Toledo was helpful, especially for those who have never been there. Toledo is a large city (750,000 in metro area) without a great deal of traffic problems. The actual campus is in a residential area in South Toledo, not the downtown area. This is a huge positive to most other schools I've seen. There is grass (or snow) and trees everywhere with parks nearby. It should make the medical school experience more enjoyable and lower stress. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is only one major hospital on campus that students rotate through. The other major hospital students rotate through is ~20 minutes away. Also, there are THREE Level I Trauma centers in Toledo and two children's hospitals. For a city the size of Toledo this may dilute some of the cases you will encounter. Neither of these may end up being a problem. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known going in how friendly the people were and how conversational the interviews were going to be. I was pretty nervous going into the interviews, and this was completely unwarranted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"MCO is an awesome school. After coming away from my day (the tours, talks, and interviews) I am even more excited about going there. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to arrive at the campus. You'll be travelling at the busiest time of the morning to campus, and there is also a good chance of bad weather. It took me 10 or 15 minutes longer than I expected to get there. " Report Response
