What are your general comments?

"I was sort of medium on the whole deal. The "speed dating" was as bad as people had said -- I felt like I said the same things to 3 different people (plus I had this weird anxiety that if I phrased something a bit differently they would all cross-check with each other and decide I was lying). The school really likes to brag about their anatomy lab -- which is great, but you have to think about the fact that you will only be in there for the first 12 weeks of your first year, then you'll probably never go in it again. The rest of their facilities were very cramped. Small room with small desks for the first years, and the whiteboard seems barely visible from the back row. Also, I would like to get my own computer with better specs than the one they hand you." Report Response
