What impressed you positively?

"i loved the program itself. the humanities requirement is because psu believes in developing you as a person as well as a good physician. the patient project is so that you don't lose sight that you're treating a person, not a disease. Dr. Davis's speech was absolutely inspiring in a no-punches-held sort of way. There was a power point slide listing all the international rotations in developing countries available to fourth year students. Very much a school with a social conscience. The simulation lab was -very- cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Very rural. On campus housing. Seems insular and isolated from a social perspective. What if you end up hating your classmates? The air smells like chocolate there. I have a feeling if I went to PSU, I'd graduate looking like a house." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the parking lot would be hard to find, and that the admissions office would be even harder to find when walking from the parking lot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very positive. I think this is the only program that I've been very impressed with so far (out of 6 interviews). I love the focus of the program (very patient-focused instead of disease-focused). Everything about it was excellent, except the location and its insular nature. Put PSU in an urban area, and it'd easily be my top choice. " Report Response
