What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that the children's hospital was quite adamant about no visitors without a scheduled tour, which was a let down as it's supposed to be a wonderful hospital" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We started with a presentation and demonstration of the Standardized Patient Program, which was great and well done. Then tours of the whole Hospital and then the basic science facilities. Lunch with the admissions staff and students. Interviews were a couple at a time, separate rooms but multiple interviewers. So it's a panel interview, but quite relaxed. I enjoyed it and wish that there had been more time to talk, although I probably ran over a bit as it was. The students and staff and faculty are enthusiastic and love the school and their experiences. Enjoy your experience, it was probably the best I've had." Report Response
