What are your general comments?

"It was just a great experience. I was interviewed with one professor and one 2nd year med student. I think it was very beneficial to interview with a student to be able to see first hand what kind of environment and people are present. It was also a lot less nerve racking. The campus is pretty in certain parts. Other parts are just cement. The financial aid meeting was brief, but informative. The officers seemed very helpful. Lunch was bad. Make sure you eat a big breakfast and grab some Wendy's across the street afterwards! Both interviews were very comfortable and relaxed. Definitely more conversational than interrogating. The professor is even going to try to get me a job in a lab there! I live in the area and figured it would be convenient to go there, but now I really want to go. It seems like a great learning environment and friendly too. It's the first school where I have felt that I could fit in with the rest of the students. Very good experience overall." Report Response
