What impressed you positively?

"Bellevue sound very cool, though we didn't see much. The anatomy lab was in session though, so we walked through that which was cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lunch was strange. There were a bunch of M1s around with us, but we weren't allowed to socialize with them casually and get to know them. Instead, we all listened to a professor ramble about random projects and research grants for the entire hour. He struck me as the kind that liked to hear himself talk, and it was kind of a turn off for me in terms of what the faculty might be like. It was kind of a bummer that we didn't get to just chill and get to know the med students eating lunch with us, they seemed really nice." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the dorms (Rubin) have communal co-ed bathrooms and every room in a single, and kind of small. So bring flip flops for the shower! I can't decide if I like or dislike the dorms yet, haha." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Relaxing. My interviewer didn't read anything about me at first, but opened the file and browsed through it after about 20 minutes. It made sense since he wanted to get his own impression of me first before seeing my essays, letters, and stats. REALLY sweet interviewer, not at all stressful." Report Response
