What impressed you positively?

"Mrs. Sullivan's speech was on point -- the most articulate, explicit case for "what makes our school unique" I've heard among all of my interviews." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour was haphazard and inadequate. We didn't get to see much of the hospital or school at all. It was a jarring letdown after hearing Mrs. Sullivan speak so highly of the place. The financial aid talk also freaked me out." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That we'd only have one interview(er)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was surprised at how fond I became of the school. The sentiment that you either love it or hate it has been repeated several times here -- perhaps that's a consequence of the school appearing to have such a defined character (cura personalis, intense clinical training, Jesuit history, etc.). I appreciated that they went over the curriculum in detail, esp. the third year (which is hardcore). The interview itself, with an M4, was very pleasant and conversational; other than those I've posted here, I can't recall any blatant Interview Questions. We discussed the state of the current health care system as well as outside interests. At the end of the day, I was happy I visited." Report Response
