What impressed you positively?

"I interviewed with Dr. Katri who was the Chief Resident at the hospital. Coincidentally, he just happened to take and pass his Step 3 boards the day of my interview. He asked some very thought-provoking questions, was respectful and conversational in his tone while conveying to me the degree which he enjoyed his experience at SGU. He spoke very highly of the MD program and his enthusiasm was infectious. Dr. Katri was also very informative and encouraged me to ask questions in the future as well. Interestingly, he stated that the NY Medical Licensing board considers three types of graduates for licensing, U.S., Foreign, and SGU grads (which I hadn't known and found rather reflective of SGU's rising reputation)."
