What impressed you positively?

"The students are really close with one another. The facilities are awesome and really high tech. You get an IBM compu your first year and a PDA your third year. Early patient contact." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are really big so easy to get lost. The interviews are done like a round robin. Half of the people interview are one time and you have a 15 min time limit, which is good if the interview is going poorly but annoying if it is going well. The proctor knocks at the door and then will walk in on the interview if you go over time." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewers are not on the acceptance committee, they just make reccommendations. There are only 6 people at the interview. The interviewers convene the same afternoon after the interview and make their reccommendation. The admissions committee meets later that week and then you get a response about 2 weeks after the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My experience was great. I was really nervous going into the interview, but I must have done well because I got a letter of acceptance one week later.
