What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING. I fell in love with this school. People on here are way too harsh. The interviews can be a little tough, and maybe the one lab is a little old, but other than that everything else was phenomenal. They have an amazing SP program, a beautiful children's hospital, fantastic clinical skills facilities, integration of techniques (techonology plus microscopes), cohesiveness of students, frequent social activities and extracurricular/service things to get involved in... I could just go on and on" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. People emphasize the microscopes thing on here too much, and how run-down the lab is. Seriously, it's nothing compared to some places I've seen and the rest of the facilities are phenomenal. They use laptops and other technology besides just microscopes too..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much service and social stuff they offer. I was really impressed. Also that their standardized patient program is one of the best- and that we would experience one of them while we were there (a little intimidating, but nice to finally see what the SPs are like instead of just hearing about them)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I pretty much told it all up above. We also got to see the anatomy lab where dissections were taking place. Nice to actually see that instead of covered cadavers on tables. I also loved the people who interviewed the same day as me. We all got along really well and chatted a lot more than in my recent interviews. The students there are amazingly friendly, and I could totally see myself fitting in there. The panel interview was kind of tough, but it just depends who you get, too. There are definite advantages to the panel too, so just try to put it out of your mind and think of it like any other interview." Report Response
