What are your general comments?

"As soon as I arrived i felt it... I was nervous and stressed yes, because Drew is my top choice, but I felt I was where I belonged. It was great! The faculty was very welcoming, answered all our questioned; told us a lot about the program. Then when the student spoke it was like no other med student panel I've heard before. Eveery Drew student is happy with their choice, there classmates, everything about the program. They love it and I know I will love. The interviews were mostly personal questions and my experiences and why I thought I belonged at Drew. I felt comfortable just "spilling my guts" and I held nothing back because this was my chance to make my dreams come true. It worked... I got a phone call from Dr. Aguilera less than 2-wks later offering me a spot in the 2010 Drew class!!!" Report Response
