What impressed you positively?

"The Dean's Mustache!! I went not knowing what to expect and came out thoroughly impressed. I can see how some other feedback posts talked about bad-cop roles of the intervewiers but I geniunely feel they were making sure I was qualified to attend medical school. I don't think they have assigned roles. And yes some are more laid back than others. They interview in groups so you may sit before 2 or 3 interviewers. The school is modern, high-tech, and doesn't seem like the pressure cooker some other schools become. Very good clinical affiliations and opportunities. Oh yeah those who interviewed with me were cool, so thanks for making the day easier." Report Response
