What impressed you positively?

"The students are really involved in the program. They are on the admissions committee, they can change the curriculum when they need to, and they also participate in the interviews. They were very open and honest and made themselves available to us the whole time. The school paid for EVERYTHING. The director of the program was very down to earth. He sat on the floor with us at the dinner he had at his house." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers started off by saying that he had been doing this for 7 years and he would ask me questions that I would give the same answers that everyone else did and it would be very boring for him. He didn't seem interested at getting to know me at all. He asked some good questions about my research, but his attitude was bad. If my second faculty interviewer hadn't made the effort to get to know me, I would have felt like it was a total waste of time. Also, the interview weekend was way too long. They kept us out late all 3 nights (11pm, 2:30am, and 11pm). There was stuff going on all the time and I never actually had a chance to sit back and think about how I felt about the school. Way too much for one weekend." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the "hotel across from the med school" they put us up in was actually the third floor of the hospital, which was fine (and convenient) but it confused the hell out of the cab driver." Report Response
