What impressed you positively?

"Financial Aid (this is the biggest thing going for them). Students were diverse and came from all types of backgrounds. The faculty carries prestige and the match list was impressive. Oh and the weather was not too bad." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Number of cut-throat interviewees from Stanford, the definite favoritism towards Ivies and Stanford based on the people at my interview session. The facilities are terrible and that library was a joke. I went to a Yale interview a couple of weeks earlier and all I can say is that Stanford's curriculum is an unsuccessful Yale wanna-be. By the way I also went to UCLA for an interview and I can't believe that people believe actually put Stanford before it. Los Angeles was beautiful and their new medical center looks like it will be amazing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Stanford is right next to East Palo alto, which has a reputation for being the second most dangerous place in the bay area (Oakland was first)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got the impression that Palo Alto was somewhat remote and nothing more than a wealthy suburb of San Francisco. The school and Clinical rotations are throughout the southern part of the bay which kind of leaves you without that urban setting you could get from SF, NY, or LA. People seem to be totally brainwashed about this school. " Report Response
