What impressed you positively?

"The clinical focus is simply amazing. They actually gave us a lecture on what to listen to during a heart exam on their robot during the tour, talk about early clinical exposure! The scholarly concentration program is also excellent, and it should help you in whatever field you choose to do in the future. Oh, and hot girls ;p" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I can't really think of much, actually. Maybe give us a tour of the anatomy lab? We did get to see the histo lab. Oh, the only two girls in my interview group both got the same interviewers, and one of their interviewers drilled both with difficult questions. That's in sharp contrast to the relaxed, conversational interviews everyone else had. Coincidence or sexism?" Report Response
