What impressed you positively?

"The way the school caters to the students. How convinient it is to get from Lambert to the school, my tour guide, the security guard that drove me to Olin for the night, the fact that both breakfast and lunch were full meals, no crappy continental stuff here. I'm talking about potatoes, bacon, sausages, cereal and biscuits and omlet orders--I like food. And lunch? I won't spoil it for you." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that someone at the admissions office forgot to pass my name down to the Olin people so I could have somewhere to stay. Also, the people I signed up to meet at breakfast did not show up.

What are your general comments?

"The day starts with breakfast, then you go to the admissions office and get directions to different parts in the medical center where your interviews might be. Then you attend an orientation session and off you go! Well it all really depends on your schedule. most people have only one interview. I had two and while other people's second interview only lasted 15 minutes, both of my interviews were over an hour long EACH! I was answering a lot of questions on ethics and my passion for medicine and health care disparities. The facilities are amazing, and the school has beaucoup money for students." Report Response
