What impressed you positively?

"I really enjoyed the whole experience. I felt that everyone was very kind and helpful, and really went out of their way to make us feel like we belonged there. The facilities are pretty decent, as well as the before-stated 98% pass rate and 218 average score on step one of the boards." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It is true that there isn't much to do in Toledo (i've lived here my whole life), but how much time will you really have anyway? There are all the typical places and things to do (bars, nice Metroparks, a great art museum, etc.) to keep you occupied. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How low-stress the interviews would be. I really found them to be conversations between colleagues rather than them grilling me about why I should be accepted. Also, the interviewers only received my file at the beginning of the interview, with my 2nd interviewer not even looking over it at all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the entire experience was great. The campus is very nice, it is in my home town, and it has a good reputation. Also, the upcoming merger with The University of Toledo is a major improvement for the medical school, with many more research grants and other opportunities as a result. If I am accepted, I certainly plan on attending." Report Response
