What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewers had the option of not reading the file, and neither of mine did. Dr. Case, however, knew mine very well, and grilled me for everything he didn't like (every B, etc.), but he also commended everything that was positive." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was exhausted after the day's events! Each student meets with Dr. Case twice and with two other interviewers (usually an M.D. and a Ph.D.). My M.D. interviewer was very nice, and she answered my questions very openly. The Ph.D. interviewer was harder to read, but he warmed up toward the end and really asked creative questions."
