What impressed you positively?

"Ms. Sullivan, who spoke in the morning, is an amazing woman. Of all the people I have personally met in my life, she is one of the most memorable speakers who exudes amazing character and a genuine concern about others (including the interviewees!). If one were blind or deaf to her wisdom and intelligence, it would be a shame. Pay attention and remember what she has to say, for it applies to most areas of life and one would probably have a richer life if they are aware of such things. Reggie G." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some of the facilities are a bit old, but still valid and useful. Students giving tour seemed nonchalant and did not seem to be very informed about different programs the school had to offer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Had a much greater depth in the messege of what it truly means to be a doctor than the 5 other schools that I have interviewed at (even though the other schools were 'ranked' higher). I have many of the valuse that were brought up (not necessarily religious), and I know that I will practive them elsewhere. Patient-Oriented-Problem-Solving (POPS) seems to be just another variation of PBL...which they also have." Report Response
