What impressed you negatively?

"Not too many straight facts about all of the trouble that the school has been in recently and how it affects students matching into residencies. Like I said in my comments, things just look too good to be true at this school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I almost completely dismissed this school's interview invite because of all of the negative things that I've heard about this school. The truth is that the school has a lot to offer and is actually very appealing. At least give it a shot because chances are that everyone can find something that they'll love about this school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviewer was very nice and courteous and set a very comfortable tone. I almost felt like I was talking to my mother (of course, in a good way). She was very intersted in learning more about me and even seemed impressed to very impressed with much of what I had to say about my experiences. Faculty interview was relatively short but I got to say everything I had to say. And she didn't mind at all that I had more questions for her than she had for me! It went great. Student interviewer was cool and helpful too - completely non-confrontational. Students I met were great and in general they seemed like a pretty jovial bunch. Still, I have trouble balancing out all of these positive feelings I have about the school with that nagging sense that something still seems off. The name-changing, the accreditation issues, and the struggles of Tenet all play into this school as well, even if it doesn't seem like it. I dunno, it just looks a little too good to be true."
