What are your general comments?

"okay this is going to be long, but I figure it might be helpful. I drove by the school the night before to check out the location. I must say, i was QUITE terrified. It looked scary, and haunted, and the area reminded me of an Amityville horror scene. Saying all that, I was bummed about my interview the next morning. But, you can't judge a book by its cover nor a school by its surroundings. The next morning, we entered a conference room, where we met the other interviewees ( 9 total). Everyone was extremely nice, and well qualified. Dr. Haight was great, and really made me comfortable - definitely eased any tensions I had about the interview. I didnt enjoy the talk about the MPH program, nor the financial aid presentation ( mainly due to the fact that they spoke to us like we were 5 years old). But, I did enjoy meeting the students, the faculty, and even the interview! I left feeling really good about the school. They provide many opportunities and a supportive community to promote excellent physcians. In the end, I found that the school fit my needs and the things that mattered more to me - curriculum, early clinical experience, student life, and faculty - quickly made me forget about its location :)" Report Response
