What impressed you positively?

"the anatomy lab doesn't smell bad, my faculty interviewer was a really cool person, county is a crazy hospital with all kinds of people, mostly poor, very busy and crazy and as a student (even 1st/2nd yr) you can do "as much as you want" in terms of patient care so it's very hands-on" Report Response
