What impressed you positively?

" Students look happy. They do have free time during studying while doing well on Boards Examinations. New classrooms look great. Morgantown is a nice place (#1 dreamtown in the USA, blah, blah...) :) They have a nice parking lot available which is close to school. You have options where to go on clinical rotations (all in WV). The student who I stayed with was a great guy! I was very happy staying with him; MedStay program is amazing! Also, you get a little gift right after your interview. How nice of them!"
