What are your general comments?

"GREAT! SUPER impressed. I have no idea why people don’t like this place. The facilities were great, clean, beautiful. Of course it’s in a bad area, but you barely feel it on the campus. The staff was great, the students so happy! Really happy! And they had lives! Gregarious, fun, intelligent, well-rounded students. VERY diverse. Office of diversity was great, really open. Faculty interview went exceptionally well. We were well suited for the interview and spoke for about an hour and a half – it was fantastic, definitely the type of professor/doctor I would want as a mentor. The curriculum is great – especially the ICM – they have patient contact (taking histories) from the 3rd WEEK on… Integrated systems course – don’t have biochem alone. Student interview was incredibly relaxed. Someone I could really hang out with – all the students were fantastic. Very informal – he wore basketball shorts. Would love to see them next year ?."
