What impressed you positively?

"The school has an enormous amount of activites and obviously it has a ridiculous amount of money for research, etc. The faculty is outstanding - so much care and enthusiasm. Is definitely a brilliant place to learn." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The food was bad. The dorms worse. Decent gym though. One word comes to mind when I remember those students - UGH!. Talk about devoid of personality. They were just weird. All had something rather quirky about them. Frankly, I don't even know how on earth everyone here has given it a positive rating. Granted it is a great school, but those students.. ick! Oh yeah the other interviewers were all trying to one-up each other. Pretty funny to watch. These people are going to be our future doctors? Frightening." Report Response
