What impressed you positively?

"People in Winston-Salem and at Wake Forest are very friendly. Cookies were good. Faculty members and students are very nice and willing to answer all your questions. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It is a really small town, sort of out in the middle of nowhere. This is good for some people, not good for those who like big cities. The women from the Medical Center Guild (wives of physicians) welcomed us. That was nice, but what kind of message does that send to future female physicians? I'd like to see the husband of a physician welcome applicants. People seem conservative and old-fashioned here. Winston-Salem seems sort of stuck in time. Tour given by a student was disorganized...she didn't seem to know what to show us or where we were going. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This is a small town which is not very diverse. It is a great place for married couples, and people who like quiet, scenic places. Younger people who may like big cities...may not be for you!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There is a welcome in the morning by the women from the Medical Center Guild. They give you cookies and drinks which are good. Three 15-minute interviews which are back-to-back. This is a bit stressful but the interviewers are pretty nice, even when asking you tough questions. Overall a nice day, but Wake Forest is just not really for me. " Report Response
