What impressed you positively?

"Students were really happy to be there, and there seemed to be a lot of student collaboration. The class is small and seemed really tight. Overall, the facilities were nice, and they have both a hospital and a medical clinic right on campus with lots of shadowing opportunities for M1s. They only have four people to a cadaver, which is the smallest student to cadaver ratio I've come across. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If you sign up for the tour and lunch, you're supposed to arrive around 11:30. A woman greeted me, took my picture and made a copy of proof of citizenship (passport or birth certificate). All the interviewees (there weren't many of us, maybe three to five people) hung out in a room and heard a quick presentation from the dean about why UMDNJ. Then we went on a quick tour of the academic building. We had lunch in the cafeteria, and then went back to the interviewee room and waited for our individual interviews. While waiting, they showed us a cheesy video about UMDNJ students doing things like being on game shows. The interview itself was very laid back and quick. I wasn't asked any ethical or policy questions or any tough questions about my history. " Report Response
