What impressed you positively?

"A new clinic on the 5th floor, 25 new chairs I was told to be open for use starting Summer 2003. The sim. lab is also fairly new, very very spanking clean and impressive compared to another sim. lab at another school I have seen. This somewhat explains the high cost of this school, but we all know it is very expensive to build a brand new clinic with 25 new chairs... The staffs were also very polite, professional, and providing both breakfast and lunch is very nice of them..." Report Response

They didn't say whether there were spaces still open, even at my interview they wouldn't say it. That was too much stress for me, thinking that I am attending an interview that might not have any more spaces and spend..." Report Response
