What impressed you positively?

"Case is top school. But they are on the up. They used to compete with CCF, now they have a collaborative relationship. This stands to profit the students. Also they have true pass/fail. The students still match competitively. And heard numerous stories about how case 3/4 years would do rotations at other hospitals and would be lightyears ahead in terms of their clinical preparation. All this is a p/f atmosphere... My interviewr had a lot of passion. She loved her life and job, it was great to see a physician talking about the joy of her life as a physician (it sounds corny, but after all the HMO/health reform talk it is good to know someone who wholly endorese the art and practice of a physician with no if, ands, or buts." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"At first the true P/F. I was wondering, how am I supposed to stand out. But the truth is, the students still stand out, but rather than you v. your colleagues/friends/classmates. It is you(plural) as Case students v. all the other non-Case students. Not a bad proposition. " Report Response

"The Taxi ride from airport is $45. I thought Boston cabs were expensive..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great interviewer. Articulate. Made me feel at ease in the office space, but still asked porbing challenging questions. Didn't get asked any of the standard questions, but I never do (too much explaining to do with the undergrad stuff)" Report Response
