What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the first years on the host list had a test the day of my interview, so I could not stay with them. It worked out with me staying at a hotel, but I didn't realize a transit station was nearby. Could have saved me money, but it ended up snowing, so I was glad for the taxi." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was interested in Case before I went, but after the experience I am REALLY interested in going. The day was a busy one for me, and I interviewed with Dr. Kirby. He was really nice, and all the interviews I heard about that day were the same, short and low-stress. They wanted to know about you as a person. It's still unnerving not to know how you did after that short period. The school has great directions on how to get to their office, and we used that as our home base, and Mrs. English was very accomodating to us. I liked that the staff knew the students. The things I liked were the set-up of the curriculum, and of the building, where students have their own desk area for studying, lounges for breaks, and the computers are useful, since the lectures can be videotaped. Also the fact that you get a patient so early on is great! I met with some of the students of color, and they were candid and real with me about the school. I also talked with a few second years, before the class I sat in on and during our tour, and the only thing that they wished to change was the breaks for the school were shorter. I highly encourage being able to sit in on a class, and talk to as many students as you can. All in all, a very low-stress day. " Report Response
