What impressed you positively?

"The students love their school and feel it has totally prepared them. The ER sees the third most patients in the nation (only behind LA and Chicago) and the area is overall very poor so you see a lot of advanced CHF, etc. because people don't see their doctors--the latter is bad thing but also a good learning experience." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"High crime rate, abundance of bad neighborhoods" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We met at 8 am to have a small breakfast and talk about general information regarding the admissions process, etc. We all had our interviews at around 10 so that gave us time to look around a bit. You walk to your interviews so wear shoes that you can possibly walk up to 15 mins away in. Then the M2s took us on a tour of the classrooms and labs. We went back to the admissions office and had lunch and then an M3 and M4 took us on tours of the The Med and Le Bonheur which was great since that's where you spend the last two years. We then went back to to the admissions office to go to our last interview. Before that, though, they let us know what to expect in the next few weeks. I had a great day and great interviews-definitely my top choice. Three weeks later (they tell you it will be less than that but it's not)I found out that I got in!" Report Response
