What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are very nice, two of the clinical floors had just been updated, and the other 2 are soon to follow." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"not much, maybe the sheer size of the place. Also a student whispered "don't come here." to us, but he was smiling when he said it so it seemed like a big joke...also the students who ate lunch with us were hand selected by the admissions lady, so I got the feeling that they were chosen because they had only positive things to say. I wish we would have got to speak with more students but they were taking tests that day." Report Response

"Just how really huge this school is, but it really doesn't bother me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I have mixed feelings about it, the guy was really nice and seemed very interested in my file and what I had to say, but it was only about 10-15 minutes and 3 or 4 questions long. I felt like we had just started and he said "well, do you have any questions?" I felt like I had better ask lots of questions so he can at least have 30 minutes of interaction with me, otherwise I would have felt that he didn't really get to know me. I don't know if the short interview time was a good sign or a bad sign. I asked the other interveiwees and they said they were asked many questions...but they were interviewed by different people" Report Response
