What impressed you positively?

"Everything... There is a beautiful little medical history library, the NIH money is increasing at one of the highest rates of any program, the students were really nice, the faculty seemed to really care about the students, the students are matched at the best residencies in the country, the faculty are from the best institutions in the country (lots of ex-Duke, Yale, Harvard profs), and Charleston is great: full of history, and right by the beach." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a lot of construction going on while I was there, which is good because it means that the area is growing and prospering, but it made the campus fairly ugly." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This place is for real. I expected it to be on the level of some Caribbean med school, but it proved that it should be in with the ivy league names. Also, that I would never need to rent a car in Charleston. I was going to until I realized that everything of importance is in a 5 square mile area." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a great time. All of the interviewers and the students were very nice, and the faculty were amazing. One of them even took his Saturday afternoon to show me around one of the research facilities. Charleston is a nice, compact town with tons of history and a quaint Southern touch." Report Response
