"huge let down with the clinic. i keep harping on this, but it's really important in my eyes. of the schools that i interviewed, this was the only one that didn't show their clinic. granted, it was a saturday, but for the sake of attracting applicants it would have made a difference. while i admire the school and its philosophy, i felt like i was kept out of the loop in some respect during my interview."
