What impressed you positively?

"The laid back, friendly, and cooperative environment among students. The choice for two different curiculum tracks. The involvement by the students in both school affairs as well as community service. The school has lecture videos available online the same day as lectures. The DrX program allows you to simulate patient care online and it tells you how much your treatment costed. Everything is digitized. The non-smelliness of the anatomy lab. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The Philly weather. I'm not sure how safe the area is. But then again, I am from suburbia Southern California. The campus is really small, and its 20 minutes away from the main campus, so you'll probably spend most of the time off campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"FAculty interview is open file, and student interview/lunch is closed file. they said the favulty and student evals are equally weighted. My faculty interviewer was extremely nice and enthusiastic. Our interview was basically an informal conversation about various topics that came up in my file. My student interview was also very conversational. She asked more direct questions than the faculty. She also volunteered to drive me to the train station so I could make it to New york on time for a concert that night!! I would have been one hour late if she hadn't done that. The people at the school definitely made my first trip alone to the east coast memorable =)." Report Response
