What impressed you negatively?

"The food in the cafeteria wasn't that good. The hostess from the medical guild was a little inappropriate (reminded me of my opinionated grandmother). The buildings were old and dingy on the surface although the teaching technology was up to date." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not much surprising. It's a bit difficult to navigate to the admissions office." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a pleasant and relatively short interview day. There was a very brief curriculum and financial aid presentation. We spent a lot of time sitting around in the morning talking to the hostess. Two 2nd year students took us to lunch. The food wasn't great, but the discussion of Wake was. We had three 15 minute interviews. They were very short, but I liked it that way. Two other students took us on the tour. We mostly only saw the basic science areas, none of the clinical, but the school of medicine is right within the hospital." Report Response
