What impressed you positively?

"Almost everything... EVERYone is very nice, helpful, and likes to have fun while at the same time being very professional. My interviewers were FANTASTIC. I felt like I had made two friends at the end of it all and yet they were still asked the most difficult probing questions I have ever had to answer. The facilities while not fantastic were good where it counted (ie labs looked brand spanking new with 30'' plasma tvs but the hallway outside looked like it was falling apart). Also, the clinical experience here is great. They have everything within the teaching hospital short of a burn center." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
