What impressed you positively?

"So much. The atmosphere around the school was great. Random students in the Radiology building were talking to us and telling me how they loved it there. Plus, there is so much opportunity to ask questions and interact with the students. I think there were 8 of them at lunch." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much...I learned that anatomy is done by prosection, but there is a dissection elective that you can take if you want to. Plus, the students didn't mind because there was less time spent in the lab picking through fascia and more time for studying." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They have little snacks and drinks for breakfast." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was probably the best ''interview experience'' that I have had. I've read some really negative reviews on SDN but was shocked at how nice everyone was and how they were straightforward and honest about their experiences. My interviewer was very professional, as one should expect, but the students giving the tour were dressed normally. I thought that was fine, as they are not involved in the admissions process and are volunteering to do it. This school boasts friendship and camaraderie, and that is all that I saw throughout the day. I'm impressed." Report Response
