What impressed you positively?

"The buildings were new and nice. Frodhert Hospital is right next door. Every building on campus is connected so you don't have to worry about the cold Milwaukee weather too much. The students were extremely nice. The grading isn't bell curve based so people try to help each other (not that cut-throat). They always seem to find funding if you want to do research (which I do). The cafeteria is nice and reasonably priced. So is the housing; apparently a good apartment with 1 roommate runs about $500. They have tons of teachers and faculty full time; professors are extremely accessible via e-mail and HOME phone #. They will get their decision back to you in 1 week! (For us it is two since thanksgiving is next week.)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They didn't show us the anatomy lab. The specific school isn't that ethnically diverse, but if you want to go to downtown Milwaukee you'll get your diversity (7 miles east of campus, very short driving distance)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. I came in pretty prepared." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was very relaxed. They were supposed to 30 min each (per interviewer) but each went nearly 45. It was real casual and chit chatting about your experiences. They just want to get to know you and see if you're a good fit for their school. " Report Response
