What impressed you positively?

"Campus facilities are excellent - perhaps the best I've seen yet (and that includes DMU). The folks in the admissions office were very nice, and they even managed to find a medical student who was willing to give me what was essentially a personal tour of the campus. The school really is a mere 10 minutes away from downtown Philadelphia, and Philadelphia looked like a pretty neat city." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The area around the campus isn't so nice; there are a good number of defunct businesses and a general "seedy" atmosphere. That said, it seems to improve in spots and doesn't feel especially unsafe or anything. Also, there were supposed to be two people interviewing me; the first was late and the second never showed. The sole interviewer was stern and didn't give me time to adequately answer his questions before ushering me on to the next ones." Report Response
