What impressed you positively?

"I was impressed with the technical aspects of the school. The facilities were very modern and up to date, as were the lecture halls. I was also impressed with the friendly conversational tone of the interview process. Dr. Evans, Dr. Moradi, and Dr. Richards were a pleasure to speak with and offered a lot of good information about the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The rules regarding dress code, mandatory attendance, and food negatively impressed me. Some of the staff members were not overly friendly either. The library and cafeteria clearly need some attention, both are extremely inadequate in my opinion. The tour did not include seeing the anatomy lab :(" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, although I was suprised to learn that the school uses prosected cadavers for the anatomy class. I'm from a relatively small town in PA and went to school in a small town in NC, but Erie is pretty small it seems." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was terrific. Later in the day after my interview I had the opportunity to share some humor and laughs with my interview panel. I was also impressed with the fact an interview made a special trip to the conference room to ensure I had his card. Overall the school seems like it has the right idea, but in my opinion some of the rules seem a little strict. Nonetheless, it appears you'll get a great medical education." Report Response
