What impressed you positively?

"My tour guides were cool and seemed to like the school. Also, the Dean of Admissions was very friendly and welcoming. They are building an entirely new med school facilities building, which will be ready by next Oct. or Jan." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I would have liked to speak with students other than our tour guides. I randomly talked to some students for a few minutes and asked them why they liked the school, and they didn't seem too enthusiastic about being there. Also, a lot of people I interviewed with were reapplicants and just wanted to get in SOMEWHERE. I also stayed at the Holmes Hotel, which is an inexpensive option, but also feels like I was staying as a patient at the hospital...it was kind of depressing so that and all of the construction across the street may have clouded my impression of the school. " Report Response
