What impressed you positively?

"Jefferson is in a prime location - in the heart of Philly. So close to so many fun places to hang out, eat, shop, if you have the time to. Also Jefferson is very well known for their clinical program. They have lots of affiliated hospitals. Early clinical exposure. Student groups like Jeff HOPE are very active in serving the community.Jefferson is a very well-regarded institution in Philadelphia even though it's not as well known in the West Coast."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Philly is really awesome. I should have stayed another day just to explore the city some more." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The faculty interviewer was very talkative, cordial, and easy to relate to in conversation. She talked a lot about herself so it wasn't just a one-way dumping of information from me to her. She ended the interview with, "I hope to see you here next year!" That was very sweet of her to say. :)Also they tend to waitlist a lot of people- don't be discourages if this happens. Just write a letter of intent and most likely you will be accepted shortly afterwards. One third of their 230 person class matriculates off the waitlist. They said interviewees should hear back within 2-3 weeks of the interview. Rarely is anyone flat-out rejected after an interview." Report Response
