"Residency match rate (a good question to bring up during the interview), and the children's hospital (an extremly good facility)" Report Response

"Class size (at 180, is quite large). However, there seems to be (for its size) good class unity." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Medical College Inn is directly across the street from the hospital. However, the hotel is not very clean, but the proximity may be more than worth its proximity (as it was for me)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Two interviews. One with faculty (which seemed as much an information session as anything else) and one with the admissions committee member (which was more structured, and the one which the interviewer is in charge of bringing up your name at the admission's comittee meeting). Both overall were quite casual. I happened to have a resume with me, the interviewers liked this (and was helpful to me becuase it was closed file). Also, if you have good scores, mention them during the interview (it will make the interview easier). Most importantly, the food for lunch was very good (I especially liked the sweet tea)."
