What impressed you positively?

"The tour guides were really friendly and informative. They had honest answers for all of my questions. The school has also just received a $2.3 million gift to buy high-tech mock patients. It sounded really neat, and they should be in place by the next school year. They university also has plans to add a new building to the med school to provide better facilities for students. It seems like they are really working hard to make this a top-notch medical school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was enjoyable. Everyone was friendly. It seems like most students had one informal/conversational interview, and one formal interview where the interviewer asks questions from a list. The first was very, very low stress, while the second was only moderately stressful. Also, lunch was provided for us (I have heard in the past that this was not the case)." Report Response
