What are your general comments?

"No frills interview--no tour unless you asked for it (that was of the second year's facility); no breakfast, drinks, snack, or lunch. The admissions office seems to be a one-woman shop, but she does a great job--very friendly and helpful. Just from the admissions process it seems like a very family-like school. Take the extra time to orient yourself to Huntington. It's a wonderful town and a lot of the facilities of the University and the Medical school are new. Everyone seems happy to help-- you just have to let them know it's something you'd like to know about." Report Response
