What impressed you positively?

"The school's willingness to acknowledge other forms of medicine (i.e. accupuncture, they point out the meridians during anatomy lab) Also, the non-religious approach of students and faculty. Even though it is a Catholic school, it only shows itself very subtley, in a positive way. There are the "very religious" if you are into that kinda thing, but it is very easily avoidable and ignorable." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Ms. Sullivan is a character. She reminded me of "Granny" from the Beverly Hillbillies in her stature and energy and enthusiasm. She gave the best "you want to be here" speech I've ever heard. I want to go to this school partly just to get to know her better. (Seriously, shes that cool, and I'm not saying that just 'cause she reads these posts) Very friendly staff and students. Jesuit tradition = we give you ALL the knowledge, and trust that you will do good with it. You learn how to do anything you would do at any other M.D. program in the USA. Interview was smooth. Even though the questions I got were scary ethical things, I felt like there were'nt any wrong answers. " Report Response
