What impressed you positively?

"I was put much more at ease about the school's curriculum and rotation policy that I expected before I went. The students seem to be happy with it, even though they have a test (anywhere from 1-4hrs!!!) every Monday. And the problems with their rotations seem to be working out at least a little better. Also, the school is in a very accessible area of the city--away from the direct hustle and bustle, but close enough for the perks." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The halls are filled with lockers like high school. I'm still unsure of the quality of their hospital rotations and the cafeteria only stays open til 2:30pm." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a well-organized day. Although, they scheduled too much down time. We were told to be there at 7:45am, which I assumed was to get us there to start the day promptly at 8am. However, from 8-8:30 we were scheduled to do NOTHING but 'eat' (breakfast, which was not mentioned in the email, consisted of a cereal bar or bagel and juice or water) and wait. Why have me get there at 7:45 so I can sit until 8:30. That's the only thing I was peeved about. Interviews consist of a DO, a Ph.D. and a Med student (usually a 4th yr). They fed us lunch (provided it didn't cost over $8, lol; we had a voucher and with only the main entree and a side salad I came dangerously close to exceeding my 'limit'. Kind of silly if you ask me. I mean really, how much would interviewees eat if you just let them go at it? I seriously doubt it would be enough to warrant the limitation). Throughout the day we had a Financial Aid session, tour, interview, lunch, and a presentation of their curriculum. Everyone was very professional and accommodating." Report Response
