What impressed you positively?

"Students dissect whole cadavers rather than viewing pre-dissected prosections. There is alot of research going on that students can participate in. The campus is tucked away and remote, very quiet and charming. The students all seemed happy and enthusiastic. Dr. Haight was incredibly insightful and commiserated with our plights this late in the cycle. He offered email notification. The school has so much potential for growth. The group interview was wonderful because they had taken the time to find out about you and ask directed questions they had prepared. They had examined our applications for one week prior. Very impressive school altogether. " Report Response
