What impressed you positively?

"Probably the most professional interview day I've been on - very impressive how it was structurally laid out. Strictly pass/fail and no class rank whatsoever was very impressive" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't feel like the curriculum would prepare me too well for the boards because only about 2 hours a day is spent in lecture - seems like it is great for helping students think as doctors and try and diagnose problems (which is more important of course than boards), but with how important boards are, I don't feel I'd be as prepared as a I should be" Report Response
