What impressed you positively?

"People were incredibly FRIENDLY. I got lost on my way to an interview because my paper didn't have a letter in front of the number, and when I stopped a person in the hallway, he (ended up being a surgeon) stopped and rallied about about 3 other people (I think also surgeons) to help me. The students seem pretty laid back, and are into the "work hard play hard" attitude. I like the non-competitiveness as well. The TMC, clinical opportunities, I loved it." Report Response
