What impressed you positively?

"As far as the interview...nothing The building is nice, new and clean. Admissions staff was very friendly and made sure the day was low-key. Students were awesome and very honest. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The building reminds me of a high school. My interviewers...I had a hard time with the accent of one and the other interviewer couldn't have been less happy to be there (or so it seemed). The fact that one interviewer really wanted to know why I didn't want to go to Tulane (where I work)...turns out he is a Tulane alum. Not much in terms of academic support. One student ambassador couldn't stop talking about how the students learn much more than M.D. students and that he'll be a better clinical student than M.D. students because he's seen the results of a patient blood workup in PBL."
