What impressed you negatively?

"Encountered a snotty student there. Won't go into the detail, but I thought this student was rather inconsiderate. Unimpressed by her. Also encountered a weird, strange student there. Brazen and unpolished. Just got a weird vibe from him. I am only describing interactions with 2 students (not 200), but I left thinking that the school lets some arrogant folks through the doors unintentionally. I met 2 other students who seemed quite amiable and down to the earth." Report Response

"There was once a fire in Cleveland's river. Just a joke although there really was a fire back in the 60s. Facilities are a little run down." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After visiting new medical schools that have brand new buildings, I was underwhelmed with the school's architecture and interior decor. However, I don't pick a school based on aesthetics alone. The clinical and research opportunities are world class and I would go there immediately if it weren't for Cleveland." Report Response
