What impressed you negatively?

"Aforementioned clinical opportunities are relatively spread out around town (not a dealbreaker, just less convenient), Lake Erie keeps things pretty cold" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To set up cab service the night before. I didn't have a car, and when I called the front desk of my hotel the morning of my interview they informed me it would take an hour for the taxi to arrive. I ended up walking 2/3 of a mile in the cold, all dressed up, dragging luggage to the interview, and arrived slightly late and sweaty. NOT the way to start the day!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a terrible cold going in to this interview and had to rock the daytime cold meds which affected my performance and perception of the school. I was so self-conscious that I would look either A) obviously sick, or B) unable to articulate my thoughts." Report Response
