There is also ample time for students to do away rotations in other states and other countries, which is a huge plus for me. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was pretty good. It's a long day, starting with a bunch of lectures and seminars about the school. Then, the students join us for lunch and afterwards while we're waiting to get called down. They do a great job at relaxing everyone. I was really nervous going in since it was my first interview, but my interviewer was great at putting me at ease, so by the time my second interview came around, I was much more relaxed. All the people I met were really chill, and personally, I would love to go there." Report Response
