What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How absolutely beautiful this place is. How affordable housing can be if you look in the right place. Also, part of undergrad is on the same campus as the med school, so there's a great diversity of students there to socialize with." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This school was not at the top of my list originally. Let's face it, the last three years the board passing rate has declined. However, they are aware of this problem and have been revamping the curriculum every year since the decline began. The interviewer was funny, smart, pointed in his questions while disguising them as a conversational query. Overall, one of the best interviews of the bunch so far. Before my interview, UNECOM was at the bottom of the list. It is now quite close to the top. " Report Response
