What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Burns was SO nice! It's an MD school which is neat (I had only had DO interview beforehand). The USMLE test center...The campus is not super cute but lots of trees...Everything is connected with a glass tunnel which is cool in the winter...Workout facilities were all right...You get to use the on-campus Hilton's indoor pool and hot tub. VERY CHEAP for OH residents, and out of staters qualify after 1st year (but that first year will suck!) Lecture halls were fine, comfy chairs it looked like. Match list looks great, avg USMLE is 217 which is a solid score." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We started the day with a little informative session with Dr. Burns and other man whose name I don't remember...FInancial aid really quick, an overview of the school and the curriculum. It seemed a lot shorter and less drawn out than other interviews. We had 2 interviews scheduled, one pre and one post lunch..You do have to find them yourselves but it's easy and everyone's helpful unless you have an off campus one which I didn't have. Lunch was all right, just sandwiches back where we had been all morning...Then we had a tour w/ a student which was fine...THen the second interview and then you were free to go. " Report Response
