What impressed you positively?

"The size of the facilities (8th largest teaching health sciences center in the country). That next year a lot of additions I didn't even know about will be done next year (such as the new student center). I'm a grad. student here and didn't know about this. The school has about a 95% pass rate on the boards thanks to strong curriculum. The information session with the Dean Admissions after the interview though long as informative as you're briefed about how the selection/waitlist process works and about financial aid, etc... My interviewer talked to me a lot about the diversity of patients you get to see here and the ability to get involved in seeing patients really early on." Report Response
