What impressed you negatively?

"a bit unorganized but it was their first round of interviews so it'll prob. get better. Not just too many students around (but it was the first week of classes). Parking sucks. The whole place is one big confusing mess." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how to get from the parking garage to the med school. Go out of the garage on the ground floor and walk southwest (probably the way you drove in) toward the long brown building (Herman hospital will be on your right). If that just confused you (it did me) then ask someone for directions (just like i did)." Report Response
