What impressed you positively?

"Like other people have said, everyone is very very nice. Roger Corbman is awesome. He's honest, straightforward, and does a great job at making you relax. As everyone says, its located in a new industrial park, and is technically a warehouse building. The inside is all brand new, and you don't even know you're inside of one. No compllaints at all about facilities. Great labs. That anatomy lab has a awesome ventilation system so you don't smell any fumes or anything. Students looked happy and were really nice and helpful. The Las Vegas community has accepted them well, all Vegas area hospitals are onboard for students to do rotations. Touro-NV is only the second medical school in the state, UN-Reno only puts out 50 students a year, so the area is MORE than happy to have Touro there. They also created several new residency spots in Vegas, that they couldn't have done with only UN-Reno there. They are a new school, but I think they are quickly going to grow into one of the most respected schools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First of all, it was only one interviewer (a D.O.) because the other was sick that day. It couldn't have gone any better. It was really just a conversation, only three questions. The reason it was 40 minutes long is that the interviewer and I were getting along very well, and just ended up talking that long. At the end, he was even telling me Vegas would be an excellent area for my father and sister to move their practices and how we should look into investing in a condo. At the end of the interview, he told me I interviewed very well and he hoped to see me there next fall. And just as a note, I'm by no means an exemplary candidate as far as stats go, I have about 5 C's in science classes. After Nova, this is my top pick. Great area with a booming economy and medical field, and great school. " Report Response
