What impressed you positively?

"Everyone I met was enthusiastic about the school. Students felt good about there choice to attend Howard. Many students saw us dressed up and came by to give us pointers and to say good luck. The faculty was approachable and seemed genuinely interested in the students. One faculty member had taught at Tulane, Harvard, a school in Texas, and Howard among others. He said he had been at Howard the longest, and that it was by far his favorite place to work because of the atmosphere of the school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When I got to the admissions office, we filled out an additonal secondary application, which the interviewer received for our interview later in the day. We then went to a MS1 histology class, where we could talk to the students. Next, there was a presentation about Howard followed by a financial aid presentation. After that, two students took us on a tour and then we ate luch (which was good.) We returned to the admissions office and waited to be interviewed. My interview lasted about an hour, but it was so laid-back I didn't even realize it! All-in-all my experience at Howard was so much better than I expected! If you want a school were students really are interested in each other and there future patients, Howard my be the place!" Report Response
