What impressed you positively?

"The student tour guides. They were incredibly friendly and down-to-earth, and cared about showing us why they love UMASS so much. They were the best tour guides I've had yet. I also liked that the hospital is directly connected to the med school, which means that your education can easily be applied directly to practice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities seemed a bit older, and I didn't love the location, which seemed very isolated. However, UMASS is constantly building new facilities, and everyone told me that Worcester is a very culturally diverse location with many opportunities for service in the community." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience overall was okay. I did not expect to love the students as much as I did. However, the information session seemed a bit perfunctory; they asked if we (the whole group) had any questions but literally didn't pause to let us ask anything. My interviewers were strange. They were more interested in talking themselves--which is fine except I'm not sure how they plan to evaluate whether I am a good match for the school--and seemed uncomfortable." Report Response
