What impressed you positively?

"The academic buildings are fairly new and very clean. Anatomy lab is on top floor with lots of natural light-- very pleasant. Cozy, New England feel to the small campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There are NO SINGLES AVAILABLE. All on-campus housing is within a single building divided into suites (four bedrooms and a common area plus kitchenette, bath). This means that, if you choose to live on campus, you will always have three roommates. The only exception is "family" style housing, which consists of unfurnished, multi-room/private bath apartments. Theoretically, you could live there alone; however, the increased cost per month assumes shared occupancy. Basic cable, internet, and utilities are included. Inadequate "gym" (a few cardio machines and some free weights), no athletic facilities." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviews are blind (i.e. no AMCAS information is given prior to the interview with the exception of the personal statement, which may be requested ahead of time). My interview was completely blind. Consequently, my background (where I grew up/went to school, why I chose my college, what my parents do, etc.) comprised the majority of questions asked. This provided for a relaxed, conversational atmosphere but did not leave enough room to discuss sufficently my interest in pursuing medicine and impress upon the interviewer my motivation for doing so."
