What impressed you positively?

"My faculty interviewer was incredible. The school is really dedicated to serving the underserved. There is a lot of opportunity for international work." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"COST! The students seemed more stressed than many other med schools I have been to. They have very long class hours and are required to do a ''project'' in year 3 (as if med school doesn't have enough work already). They didn't provide hosts or allow you to contact students prior to the interview. The financial aide presentation was only 5 minutes and she almost got out of not telling us what tuition even costed. At a school where a big financial burdened would be placed, I didnt feel confident that the Fin. Aide Office would be helpful." Report Response
