What are your general comments?

"My interviews began at 9:00am 45min each. They were very conversational, none threatening and very relaxed. The curriculum is outstanding, learner-centered, and service to its community. They had real lunch, hot food and cake that was a nice treat. We were only three pple. being interviewed on that day, but we had aleast 15-20 students join us for lunch and they shared there medical experiences with us. In addition there was a formal introduction of the school and curriculum by the president of SNMA highlighting student activity. Faculty and staff were also present including the two doctors who had interviewed me earlier that morning. The students and faculty are a very close acadeic community. The faculty is easily accessible even off office hours. The tour guide was very well versed with each and every corner of the school and medical center. There is plenty of opportunity at Penn. State Hershey to become the kind of physician you envision your self to be in future." Report Response
