What impressed you positively?

"Dr. Case and his staff goes out of their way to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible during the interview process. A new hospital is all but completed for the medical school. Progressive involvement of student government and student body with administration. USMLE step 2 scores are a full standard deviation above the national mean." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview process was even more laid back than I had imagined." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The overall experience was very good. The staff immediately put me at ease with pleasant conversation, until Dr. Case was ready to interview me. Dr. Case interviewed me open file, while the other two chose to do it closed file (its the interviewer's decision). One was the associate dean for student affairs, who was pleasant. We talked a lot about my wife and the pressures of medical school on spouses and support groups. The other was an ER physician that I connected well with, and spent a full 10 minutes talking about our tastes in music." Report Response
