What are your general comments?

"Before I went to the Tucom-LV interview at Mare Island, I had done some research online about the research experience of others through SDN. I read the negative ones first, since I figure it is best to know what is bad about the school and prepare myself for the worst. But those reviews are wrong. I actually had an enjoyable time during my interview. The drive from the airport to the the hotel was amazing, especially the drive over the bridge across the bay. The hotel wasn't that bad either. I just hoped the front desk could give better driving directions to local restruants, I almost got lost trying to find a place to eat. The campus at Mare Island wasn't as bad as what people say. Eventhough we didn't get to tour the campus, everything looks fine to me. Now the best part, Dr. Haight. I had read a lot of reviews saying Dr. Haight was great and I finally had a chance to meet him myself. I have to agree with others. I strongly believed he made the interview process much more easier to go through. He mentioned that he hand picked all the interviewees based on qualities that he believed each student pocess that will make them a good doctor. I believed he does, such can seen in the students interviewing with me. We were a great group and we supported each other through the whole process even though we just met that morning. I seriously hope we all get in so we can all party together down at vegas. Oh, last but not least, Brian was great also. I know some other reviews complained about not been able to talk to other students on campus about the school. However, I personally think Brian is a great example of the student that will be attending Tucom-LV. He made us pumped for the interview and I hope I will get the chance to be one of his fellow students." Report Response
