What was the most interesting question?

"It was a hypothetical question which I found out really happened...it went something like this: There is a 9 year old female that is clinically braindead. Her parents want to care for her in their home but they are worried that she will grow too tall and weigh too much so they give her drugs to stunt her growth and the girl has a hysterectomy. Do you consider this to be a radical procedure? Is this considered child abuse? Should the state get involved." Report Response

"Everyone is fairly new there since this is the first class they have so not everything is 'set in stone' yet at the school and changes are still being made. The financial aid woman wasn't very knowledgeable in our session. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I forgot that you have to pick which Community Health Center site you'll be at for years 2-4. I wish I had known that this campus wasn't exactly a problem-based curriculum but have an even more unique way of teaching through case studies and flow charts kind of (it's hard to explain!)..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a full day. You have a file review and then an interview that is closed file where they ask you a standard 5 questions everyone gets. Lunch was absolutely amazing!!! Then you do a group session where you're being watched and evaluated. We helped create important things that should be included in their honor code since they don't have a school honor code yet. I found out I got into the school the next day!" Report Response
