"Nothing" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The food was good and the med students seemed friendly. The school is going toward a more technology based curriculum (sp?). Pretty good Women/Children's facility and they say everyone gets a lot of clinical experience." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviews were scattered around and they didn't have typed out directions for all of them. Interview locations were scattered around which made it very stressful because you were sort of on your own. Also, no directions to the school and it was difficult to find. The tour of the Women/Children's facility seemed to take forever." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I would have worn different shoes because of the tour and the amount of running around to get to each interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school seemed a little old, but they were doing a lot of remodeling. The school itself seemed decent, with plenty of clinical experience especially if you are interested in pediatrics or ob/gyn. The lady who gave the finance discussion seemed a little intimidating, and the tour of the facilities by the director wasn't incredibly interesting. One of my interviewers was a little rude and very intimidating. " Report Response
