How did you prepare for the interview?

"Barely prepared at all. Just looked at my secondary real fast. Make sure you know everything you sent to them (and to any school for that matter). You never want to get caught in a lie. It's funny one of my two interviewers and I were talking about that. Oh and I looked at SDN interview feedback a bit. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing. The cost of living in the area is great. Two people brought spouses and one even a 2 month old child and admissions encourages these things. It's a very family-oriented place and they encourage you to include loved ones in your decision. They also do special programs including house visits to elderly patients and doing school physicals in the first two years. School open 24 hours a day and they just built more stuff for study rooms and such. I like that a school that has been around for 115 years still takes the opinions of students seriously and implements things to help them." Report Response
