What impressed you positively?

"Everything really. The campus is small, but not high-school feeling. It's got several great hospital affiliations and everyone was really nice. Evidently there is a lot of support from the deans as well; close faculty-student relationships and lots of opportunity in terms of volunteering (Free Clinic and Community Outreach Program) and research. The lunch in the faculty dining room was AWESOME! so nice! everything was good. my interviews were very conversational and it was just fun!" Report Response
