What impressed you positively?

"the way that Dr. Thibodeau thoroughly explained the coarse load and methods of learning. they left no question unanswered. there is also a high percentage of students passing on the boards." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"i thought that the interview and presentation of the school was a tad bit too slanted towards the excellence of board scores. after the fiftieth reference to their greatness, i started to fidget in my chair. also, i thoght that the lecture halls were dingy,and the clinics were a little bit claustrophobic and not so well lit. the whole facility looks like a stadium disguised with a high school interior (and a few nice hallways here and there) " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that the school is in the middle of no where. for a new yorker like myself, i think that the lack fo things to do would quickly drive a person in need of a mental break from the grueling curriculum crazy in a hurry." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i thought that although the school has a great reputation and being #2 in the country, it focuses a little bit excessively on its board scores, and nothing else. the reuirements are very individual based, which some may like, and others may hate. i only had one interviewer, but that was only by accident since one of them had to step out, and most of the time the interviewer tried to get me to say that i would rather go to stony brook university, and prodded me to defend my interest in the school as specifically compared to stony brook, which i think is unfair. i have applied to other schools because i am interested in them, and the interviewers at conn can't expect students to have only one school on their mind.
