What impressed you positively?

"The clinical facilities (LeBonheur and St. Jude in particular) were fantastic. Both of my interviewers were very welcoming and knowledgable about the school. The school seems to be working to increase their research presence, which at least to me, was exciting to see." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Might have just been the given day, but our student guides seemed a little less collaborative than I would have preferred (all studied by themselves exclusively and kind of gave off a cliquey vibe). However, our MS3 and MS4 tour guides all seemed the opposite (super friendly, very collaborative), so I'm thinking it was more of random chance and the students being new to giving tours than indicative of the culture of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
