What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers and students expressed their awareness that MCG is not as highly ranked as some other regional schools, yet they were still very enthusiastic about MCG for clinical education. Augusta now doesn't seem as discouraging as before the interview. They also have a student hosting program, which means interviewees can stay the night with a student the night before the interview. It's very helpful and informative." Report Response
