What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was great. The school went way out of their way to arrange two extra meetings for me with researchers--and I'm not an MD/PhD candidate; this was just something they mentioned in their conformation email as a possibility, but they really followed through on it." Report Response

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was favorably impressed from the get-go. They were very attentive and pleasant about every part of the process. The students were friendly, they encouraged us to look in on a first-year lecture unaccompanied (which I liked because you're not being "social", you can just watch), I loved my meetings with the researchers (who took extra time to go over their work with me and both of whom encouraged me to come back and visit again), and my interviewer was terrific. I don't know whether she was chosen on purpose, but as an older female student it was great to talk to a woman with kids who really understands what the issues are for women in medicine. Overall, a really great day. I came away hoping I got in." Report Response
