What impressed you negatively?

"The student interviewer did not seem to be interested in anything I said, just went down the list of questions with no regard to my previous responses and kept forgetting what I already mentioned. Also some of the student interviewers were first and second year students - this is probably why they were so apathetic. My faculty interviewer, however, could not be nicer. I hope they place more emphasis on the faculty interview!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Arrived early but got lost in the med school. Make sure you actually go through the library to the second set of stairs instead of taking the stairs outside the doors to the library. And bring your ID - you'll need it to get a visitor's pass. It was overall a great day and the lunch was actually large enough to make you full! The new hospital is great!" Report Response
