What impressed you positively?

"The campus is pretty nice and compact, which I find nice since it's not directly IN the city. There are some amazing hospitals that you would get to be a part of as well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The class size... 330 and growing. Also, they have eight (I think) regional locations, which I'm not a fan of, although you would find out your location in ~April (so before you had to make a decision). Also, the interview day was one of the worst I've been on, which is a shame because it is a great state school. I had an immense amount of downtime and also I was not a huge fan of ~100 people interviewing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I would be sooooo bored... seriously, bring something to read or study." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview day wasn't great, with 100 interviewers and lots of down time... but the interview was extremly laid back and one of the most enjoyable I've had. They typically have just one typical ethical question and something about the core competencies, so make sure to look at that." Report Response
