What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were amazing; Jefferson has many buildings with rich architectural designs which if you appreciate that form of artistic beauty is simply amazing. The labs were also really up-to-date and the people seemed very friendly and welcoming which was surprising to me considering that the campus is actually in the heart of center city Philadelphia." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Suffice it to say that I wouldn't want to be classmates with some of the people that I interviewed with. I was told before that you should look closely at the people that you interview with because that is likely how your class will be. You could take that with a grain of salt but I felt that many people I interviewed with were either really immature or really full of themselves and found every opportunity to remind you that they were from an Ivy League institution. I really think that's pathetic!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing major but I really was surprised to find that Jefferson really has a "campus" despite its location and that when you are in the buildings you feel very far removed from the hustle and the bustle of center city." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Three solid, conversational, low-stress interviews!" Report Response
