What impressed you negatively?

"Interview needs a little more access to the students. Lunch was about 15 interviewers and one 3rd-years. I was seated at the other end of the table, and never really had a chance to talk to either of them." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you stay at the Best Western by the school, do be sure to get a room as high up as you can. There's a Panera next to the hotel, and if trucks are delivering stuff at night, it can be very noisy." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very strong day. They load you up with a lot of information, sometimes too much information, like during the curriculum discussion, but too much is better than not enough. The medical complex is truly ginormous, so it takes two hours to do the tour. I'm a fan of the interview setup--one faculty, one student. I came interested in the school, and I left even more interested. Also, Pittsburgh seems like a cool place to live...at least to me." Report Response
