What are your general comments?

"My experience at Drew was incredible. If you can honestly say that the mission of Drew is exactly what you want to do then this school is your opportunity. Personally, I want to go to the underserved communities therefore being at Drew would give me amazing opportunities. Drew students generally get a lot more hands on experience and are surrounded my faculty members whose interests are to help the surrounding communities. I was really impressed with the physicians who introduced themselves during the day and the organization of the day has changed because no one was waiting for 2nd interviews for too long. There has been a lot of speculation with the MLK hospital and Drew is doing all they can to fix the problem. If anything, it should make you want to go to the school and prove others wrong in order to fight for Drew's mission. It's all about the mission!" Report Response
