What are your general comments?

"Everyone else's entries are pretty spot-on. The interviews really are laid back. My second interviewer asked some hard questions, but seemed more worried about offending me than grilling me (his reputation around campus is one of immense student support). The tour involves a lot of walking, as their gym and anatomy labs are each in separate buildings from the classrooms. The anatomy lab, by the way, is nicely laid out but NOT well ventilated. They say they are in the top 2% for gross anatomy exposure, which means long hours of smelling formaldehyde. After the tour, you're done. Overall,everyone was nice but the size of the town is a serious downside, considering some of the other schools I've interviewed with." Report Response
