"the train back to the airport (from queen lane station) doesnt come very regularly. this was not a fun situation to be in if your plane leaves just a couple hours after the interview. be sure to look up SEPTA and find the times the train is leaving so you can be sure to get back to the airport in time! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience, 2 interviews, neither too difficult really. I recommend going over your research papers just in case they ask you about it because I kind of got asked a lot of specifics about my research. The student interview is very relaxed and nothing to be worried about at all. There is an informative slide show presentation and they show you the anatomy lab which is cool. Overall I liked it..good luck!" Report Response
