What are your general comments?

"Overall great school. Faculty seem good and the administration is very friendly. Quality of education is good, and the students appear happy with the school. Facilities are modern and excellent. Hospital on campus is very convenient. Very informal tour was nice. Admissions office was extremely accommodating and friendly. Style of interview (one doctor and one student, kept shooting questions at me, taking notes while I talked) was a bit tough and I didn't go away feeling the best. Only lasted 10-15 min long. Hear back on the 3rd Friday of each month. Nice area around the school. Overall very positive experience." Report Response
