What impressed you positively?

"Surprisingly, this school was very impressive in all aspects. Their flexible curriculum that introduces clinical exposure since day one was good to see. And the amount of money they've recently spent on new facilities showed. They have an entire psuedo-clinical building devoted to practice clinicals. Plus, the hosts seemed really enthusiastic.

What are your general comments?

"The interview was really laid back. From my understanding, everyone gets interviewed by two people at once - one doctor and one admissions person. So the doctor that I had asked me about academics and the admissions lady asked about my personal stuff. But in all, it was conversational (we ended up talking about basketball for about 15 minutes) and they didn't ask any ethics questions, which was a plus. :) " Report Response
