How did you prepare for the interview?

"Made sure I was up on the current literature related to my research." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! The interview made a big difference in my impression of the school. The PIs were all from big name places (Hopkins, WashU, Harvard) but moved to MCW for it's collaborative environment and seem genuinely happy. The students were really friendly, love their school, and have super cool research." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school was kind of off the radar and I didn't know what to expect in terms of research facilities and funding. But in talking with the PIs and then doing a bit of looking into the funding I was really impressed!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school and the students treat the interviewees great! Your own hotel room, fantastic food, and relaxed interviews made the whole visit seem like a vacation. The research opportunities were far more than I expected and the people were awesome but the school isn't for everyone. If you like warm weather or major cities it might not top your list. So I recommend visiting the school before you make any judgments." Report Response
