What impressed you negatively?

"The information session gave a lot of statistics, but I got the impression that this school was slow in responding to suggested changes to its curriculum. The facilities aren't that great, the students talked a lot about how they didn't need to go to class, they emphasized how the last two years of studies were great at the university, giving me uncertainty as to how good the first two years of studies are. There is very little problem based learning (PBL) offered at this school, which seems to be out of step with national trends." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview experience was satisfactory. I thought it was very well coordinated and organized, and the interviewers did a great job. The information session given by the director of admissions did not have a big impression on me. He gave a PowerPoint presentation which was presented well, but he went too quickly through his slides. The tour was decent, but left me with some doubts about the program." Report Response
