"Tried to sleep on the plane." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is very awesome, and HST students are treated like better people, it seemed. But during the day they're all away at MIT so you don't get to meet many unless you come back at night. Boston is also a great city." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that HST students are too distinct from NP students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Take the subway from the airport. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was for HST. The faculty interview was open file at Mass Gen and the student was closed file at MIT. You can take the subway to and fro but they'll give you cab fare if you need it. You don't get to see the hospitals on the tour, so visit them in your free time. On the top floor of the library is a museum with Phineas Gage's skull, check it out. " Report Response
