What impressed you positively?

"The area surrounding the school has many nice views. Most of the people I met were very friendly. My interviewers seemed to be interested in more than grades and MCAT. They told stories and conversed with each other as much as they did with me. I heard that some professors went to school every day (including weekends), and that they held extra study sessions to help some students out." Report Response

The students helping with the application process were first years with limited knowledge about the school. The tour of the campus was incomplete." Report Response
