What impressed you positively?

"Terrific interview day. Met many students in all classes (1st, 2nd, 4th year) on the tour, at lunch, at pre-interview get-together. Was able to attend anatomy lab and talk to first year students there. Intro meeting was informative, and enjoyed seeing facilities at the simulation center. Interviews were with student and faculty member; both were friendly and conversational. Also, appreciated having the interviews at the end of the day after tour, lunch, class, etc. because painted a complete picture of academic and student life." Report Response
