What impressed you positively?

"They have a taco bell, kfc, pizza hut, and subway in their student center. Oh wait, that didn't impress me either." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"1) The med student hosting was no essistent, I had to make last minute arrangements with a friend of a friend 2) There was no one there to great the interviewees as they arrived. 3) The facilities, i.e. the ventilation in the anatomy lab is nonexistent 4) We were only introduced to one med student the whole day, she was the tour guide. And she didn't seem to know much about anything. As a matter of fact we were lost for a short bit. 5) My interviewer canceled on me, so I was interviewed by someone who hadn't seen any of my information at all and spent 30 seconds scanning over it after I arrived 6) The interviewer talked for the first 15 minutes straight. I had to start interjecting just to be able to get a word it. 7) I didn't like the location of the school, it is kind of set aside from everything else and is in a pretty affluent area. Not great when the reason you want to be a doctor is to help the underpriviledged. 8) The ridiculous rents in DC, and that is coming from someone that lives in the bay area." Report Response
