What impressed you positively?

"How genuine everyone was...people were so friendly and honest with me about their experiences. At one point I was lost on the way to the hospital and a professor (happened to be the anatomy prof all the MS1s raved about) helped me find my way. Super sweet! Also, prof really cared about teaching. I was in the anatomy lab ''observing'' and on my way out, the prof stops me and starts lecturing to me about what the student were learning! The lecture rooms, patient interview rooms (b/c they're brand new), anatomy lab, and library were all very nice especially for what seemed like a really old school." Report Response
