What impressed you positively?

"Nuttall (the interviewer in Mass) gave both pro's and cons of going to a foreign medical school. he enjoyed his experience. seems like you get the best international experience as a physician at SGU ( you can go to london for one of your clinical years). also if you graduate at the top 5% of the class, you can transfer to an american school... but it's your responsibility to find out what schools have openings. you're not at a significant disadvantage if you attend SGU. you take the same step exams... and all of the residency programs are pretty much open to you. the elite ones like the ones at harvard will be harder, but that's for everyone, american taught or not. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the clinic was in brockton which is to me in the middle of no where. (20miles north of boston) - i obviously got lost. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There was myself and another applicant listening to Nuttall, but afterwards he talked to us one-on-one. I wasn't expecting a group thing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"pretty laid back. when he talked to the two of us he went through a typical day at SGU and went into detail about the disadvantages and advantages of attending a foreign medical school. he did pretty much 70% of the talking. make sure you have a slew of questions to ask. e.g. safely, drop out rate, fac:student ratio, faculty educational bkgd, residency match, competetive specialities, international medicine, and the interviewer's expereince on the island" Report Response
