"The students seemed very happy and laid-back. The anatomy labs are first rate and brand new. The trust that the faculty puts in the students to do the work is impressive.

What are your general comments?

"There were three sets of interviewees and we'd meet in the lounge where the admissions director would answer any questions we had. My first interview was at the VA, so I had to ride a shuttle over there. Then lunch in the cafeteria, then my second interview. This was probably my hardest interview to date. The interviewer wasn't good with eye contact and his questions seemed quite cliche. However, I spoke with some students later and they said that was just how he is, so I was somewhat reassured. Then the tour which was impressive. Afterwards the director spoke with me and it was clear that he was familiar with my application and he hooked me up with a MS4 that shared some of my interests."
