What impressed you positively?

"THE FACILITIES. the campus is VERY nice. incredible OMM lab. those funky robots used for clinical practice. the new anatomy lab wing: clean, fresh smelling, well-planned area. tons of cozy and private study nooks. the safety of campus and surrounding area (people leave their stuff in the study rooms all the time). the librarian who cooks for students. THE STUDENTS: uber friendly, honest, and humorous. very cute/quaint downtown area. the faculty seems very student-friendly as well. the fact that one student said his biochem prof would tutor him personally several times a week was also impressive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"it was bitterly cold the day we went. though the snow flurries were kind of a treat, coming from CA. the surrounding ''neighborhood'' is definitely either to your taste or not. wasn't a big fan of the fact that the Walmart seemed to be the lifeblood of the town. no cafeteria or student housing. the evident NEED for a car while you're living there. student body (from what i saw) is not as diverse as i'm used to."

What are your general comments?

"this was my very first interview so i was nervous as hell. but as luck would have it i was able to connect with two other interviewees at the airport, as well as two first year students, who took us under their wing, gave us a private tour and insider info :wink: and hung out with us the night before. with their help, i felt like i was already a student at the school, which gave me a much more clear feeling of whether the school would truly fit me or not. the tour guide annette was great but it was the coldest day they've had in a long time so walking outside was pretty painful. the interview was as relaxed as everyone said it would be..so dont stress out like i did. this school has wonderful resources and a great demeanor, but i think the cost and lack of help with the cost from the school might be the deal breaker for me."
