What impressed you positively?

"Students were happy. Great opportunities for rotations in various places during the clinical years. Students said that there was so much going on at the hospitals that they were never by-standers, always involved in a hands-on way with patients. My interviewers were both extremely friendly. The personal interviewer put me at ease and made the whole hour go by as a comfortable conversation. The academic interviewer was also very nice but threw out some interesting questions that forced you take a side. He never hesitated to disagree with my answers, but he was also never mean about it."
