What impressed you positively?

"The atmosphere was really warm and inviting. The faculty seem very responsive to students. The students seem happy to be there. The campus in downtown Phoenix is pretty cool- It's located in a very old building that used to be a high school (don't worry- it has been renovated on the inside). The medical campus is completely separate from the large UA and ASU campuses." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interview was scheduled for an hour long block. My interviewer was 20 minutes late, and then we had to walk to another building, so I felt I only had about half of the time that the other applicants had that day. Also, my interview was closed file; I was disappointed because my interviewer asked me many questions he could have just easily read from my file. I didn't feel it was as productive as it could have been, and I was only interviewed once, by only one person." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"Although this is a brand new school, I think it is a really great program. The administration spent two years researching medical schools across the nation, asking them what they would do over again if they had the chance, before creating their own curriculum. They are highly responsive to student needs, and the students seem to love the program. Also, for information, the school is not affiliated with any specific hospital, so students move around throughout the valley and have the opportunity to experience many different clinics/hospitals. However, some of the students were driving 35 miles each way to visit their clinic every week." Report Response
