What impressed you positively?

"The students were really helpful. The informal panel during lunch gave a lot of diverse veiwpoints on life at USUHS and everyone there seemd to genuinely enjoy it." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They had to scramble to get interviewers, which led to a bit of a confusing schedule and some people (fortunately not me) had really bad interviewers who I assume usually are not used. Part of what happens with deployment schedules though not enough doctors around for extra duties outside the clinic." Report Response
