What impressed you positively?

"LOTS!! The people were SO nice--the students, the faculty, the MST Program administrators, everyone. The Graduate School program is very strong, and lots of the students get out in 4 years or less. The town is very nice, it's got tons of small local restaurants and lots of things to do. Good environment. OH-and the airport lost my luggage (I got it later that night) and Paul Cook (the administrator of MSTP) told me I could wear what I came in, that it was a very casual interview." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"THE WEATHER!!! Even though I'm from Minnesota, so I should be used to it...but the rain and the cold, not a good combination. Also, when we toured the hospital it was eerily quiet. Like there was no one there. But it was 11am on a Saturday..." Report Response
