What are your general comments?

"The school is exactly what I am looking for in a medical education. That being said, it's probably not the best place for everyone, and they admit that. The school is brutally honest about its programs and mission. They don't sugar coat anything or feed you endless propaganda like most schools do. The interview itself was one of the more difficult ones that I have had. Still, my interviewer was friendly and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. Also, the questions were all fair and were nothing that I wasn't prepared for (or you wouldn't be prepared for if you read the previous posts for this school). " Report Response
