What impressed you negatively?

"there's no wet lab - everything is done on computers, this is great, i guess, but you lose some of the lab science stuff. there is also very little research on campus, however opportunities elsewhere (ie: NIH). Also, students were very disinterested/bored with some of their classes (they said everyone was, but they were the only students I actually heard complaining during my various interviews)."

What are your general comments?

"I got there (a bit late thanks to metro troubles). it was raining (bring an umbrella, DC weather is a bit unpredictable). We started with a talk by the dean of admissions, then we went on a tour of the classrooms and hospital. They share the class facilities with the school of public health but there's no cross registering allowed (one of the only schools i interviewed at where this was the case). The facilities are fairly unbeatable. The location is awesome. The students were very gregarious, the complained quite a bit about their anatomy class, and not wanting to go to class/school, but maybe this was just the students that day, not sure. All seemed happy about their decisions, very diverse group. After tour/lunch I had two interviews, first one with a stone-faced professor, he had no reaction to me or the other 2 interviewees, he's just a hard interviewer, but it was conversational if not congenial. Student interview afterwards, went incredibly well, she is someone I would love to be in school with, was really intelligent, engaging, and easy to talk to. Afterwards they gave us mugs, talked to us about the track system - it seems really cool and a great opportunity to include students personal interests into their medical school education. There's a lot of support for student endeavors." Report Response
