"Where do I begin? EVERYTHING. I absolutely loved this interview and school. Faculty, staff, students were all kind, friendly and extremely open. Dean German has a very ambitious vision and it is clearly coming to life. The school and surrounding "medical city" are growing and improving rapidly. Facilities are brand new, very high-tech and beautiful. Wide variety of teaching hospitals/environments for clinical years. Lots of time with students both the night before at a pre-interview dinner, during my home stay, and on the day of the interview. One of the most impressive things about the interview day was the level of transparency from the admissions office - REL told us exactly how and when admissions decisions are made." Report Response
