What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing and are brand new. They are continuing to grow, brining in patient simulators for the bottom floor of the building next to the CLCs. Students were extremely happy to be there and numerous ones commented that it is a less stressful environemtn than other state medical schools. I was able to sit in on a class after my interview and was impressed by the integration of the computers they give you for free with the lecture (gives you the option to either print it out or to take notes on the power point slides provided by lecturers prior to lecture)."

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Stayed with a friend who is a first year student prior to the interview and ate dinner with four students the night before. Students are devoted to ensuring that the group as a whole succceeds, rather than just looking out for themselves which is a real positive. I interviewed with the early group and the interviews went well. Interviews were conversations and my whole application was discussed. They do a good job of reading up on you before hand, both of the interviewers had sticky notes coming out of my packet with questions they were going to ask. Ate lunch after both interviews with first and second year students who were very open about their experiences and willing to discuss what they liked and did not like about the school. Tour was after lunch and lead by Dr. Eveland, which was interesting as he was not supposed to be conducting this tour (a second year was). Took us around facilities and they were immaculate. After tour my official day was over. I then sat in on a physiology lecture." Report Response
