What impressed you positively?

"The spirit of a holistic approach to learning and student life was definitely a plus. I really like how they care not only about the academic success of their students, but also their development as people and caring physicians. Academics is top notch -- especially anatomy. They pay for the prep course for the boards! Their facilities are great, their classrooms are fairly large, the Dean of Student Affairs was really nice. The stay-over program with an MS-II was great to prep me for my interview and to ask them questions about what they liked about the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It seemed socially dead -- probably because we were there during class time and everyone was in class. The town is so small and so far from other cities, but I'm sure it'll be a matter of just adjusting to it. No rotations in CA (where I'm from)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the town is really small (as most people have indicated in this database). No rotations in CA. Apparently 30% of their students are married. I don't know if that's ALL of their students, or if that's just MS-I or II, etc." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience, especially since it was my first interview. Though I'm very impressed by its academic program, the student body doesn't seem very ethnically/racially diverse. Another thing about the interview is that they gave us cards that gave us background about the faculty/staff who were interviewing us, to point out any commonalities we may have, or bring up questions about their background and hobbies, things of that nature. Overall, it was really relaxed, but I think I was just nervous/stressed out because it was my first interview." Report Response
