What impressed you positively?

"Basically everything. The curriculum is extremely innovative, the whole place is really high-tech, anatomy labs are the best I've seen (full-body CT scan of cadavers), students were friendly and honest, faculty seems to value their students' input on the school, also the hospital was very impressive as well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Winston-Salem isn't for everyone. I loved it (I'm from a smaller town), but if you're looking to go out to clubs, bars, etc., you might want to look elsewhere. Seems like an ideal setting for medical school (lack of major distractions; a very liveable and affordable city). The medical campus gym is a little small." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Met by medical guild in the morning (the wife of a medical school faculty member), who was super nice and made everyone feel relaxed. Went to presentation on the school and financial aid for about an hour. Then we went to lunch with three first year students. They were very honest about Wake and gave us a clear picture of the school. After lunch, we toured the medical education building (anatomy lab, classrooms, and the library). Finally, at 2 we went back for our interviews, which weren't stressful at all (very conversational, get-to-know-you type of interviews). I was done by three o'clock and drove right to the airport to catch my flight." Report Response
