What are your general comments?

"Overall, I really liked the school. The new facilities are some of the nicest I've seen. U of I Hospital is very nice, but it is a total maze, so if you leave to wander around while you're waiting for your interview, give yourself enough time to get lost trying to find your way back. The students seem happy to be there, even though many said they were hesitant to live in Iowa. That was good to hear. Iowa City is a nice, liberal college town, so it's not as if there is nothing to do, but it is pretty small." Report Response
