What impressed you positively?

"The environment of the school was very relaxed and supportive. The students all seemed very happy, which I can't say for the other schools I've interviewed at. There's a Level 1 trauma center and St. Jude's affiliate children's hospital right on campus. One of my interviewers (a neurosurgeon) said that the students are vital to the operation of the whole medical center and aren't just flies on the wall. The standardized patients and systems-based curriculum are great things as well." Report Response
