What are your general comments?

"After interviewing here and seeing the campus, USC has pushed itself up to my #1 choice. (It was at #3 pre-interview). Everyone was so friendly, even students I approached at random to ask directions. They have really nice facitlties for the students, including a lounge with big leather couches and a big screen TV -maybe why tuition is so high :-)Seriously though, I think I would be very happy at this school, and would recieve a top quality education. LA county hospital is incredible, I am 100% sure I would see cases there that I would not see anywhere else!" Report Response
