What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were all first rate. Campus was expansive, the relationship with Cleveland Clinic. Seems like you will get a great education." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1) Cost of tuition, but that is generally with these private med schools. 2) The people I was interviewing with. Most were 22-23, from top schools, but lacking social skills. We sat in a room for an hour and trying to make conversation was more painful than self inflicted lashes. If that's who my classmates are going to be, YIKES!!!" Report Response

"nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very relaxed. The guy was very cool actually mocking the fact that he had to go through this standard question list. He actually spent quite a bit of time telling me about what kind of medicine he does, the attractions of the city of Cleveland and about Case. I learned a lot from him. THese interviewers are selling you as much as you are selling yourself." Report Response
