How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN interview feedback, read over my application & supplementary essays" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The P/F system, the new curriculum, the medical center & cleveland clinic, the mph program, and how nice everyone was. The neighborhood around Case (i.e. the Heights) seemed like a chill college neighborhood, affordable with lots of small independently owned stores and restaurants." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cleveland weather seems cold and dreary much of the time. Tha lack of school-owned student housing (you have to rent an apartment, and most are 10-15min. walk from campus)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there were so few Hispanic students compared to other minority groups. That there aren't any organizations that are just fun, and not medically related. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Case is an excellent school, and I think the new curriculum's push to integrate public health care issues is an awesome step forward. The p/f system ensures that the student body is really cooperative and laid back. All in all though, I'm unsure about finances, Cleveland, and whether it's a good "fit" for me." Report Response
