"What do you think is the biggest problem in health care? I felt like this was the only thing my interviewer could think to ask, as if she ran out of things to talk about.

What impressed you negatively?

"The housing is on campus but it's like living at college again. The day of my interview there was not a lot of interaction between the staff/students and interviewees. For breakfast we were left on our own in a back room in the admissions office. It would have been nice to have that time to ask questions to the admissions staff." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the admissions staff aren't very friendly. The interview wasn't difficult but the atmosphere was a littl daunting." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"When I arrived the admissions staff wasn't even there yet. When they arrived one by one the interviewees got their pictures taken for the school tag you had to carry with you and then we were instructed to help ourselves to breakfast in a back room. After waiting about 45 min. we had some staff talk to us about financial aid. After waiting more, and my interviewer showing up late, I had my interview. After I had to wait for about an hour and a half in the back room until the tour, which was lead by two first year students. After the tour we had lunch and then were free to go." Report Response
