What are your general comments?

"I really liked Buffalo and had a good interview experience. It seems to provide a great community with large resources. The new curriculum is a good balance and you're out of class almost most days by noon. Basically, people move to Buffalo for a reason, and it's not a snow fettish. They like being around smart, interesting people without the hassel, expense or attitude of a large city. I like that. The school is forward thinking and will provide anything you need - you just have to seek it out. Great value, solid medical education. My interviewers tried to make the standardized format as low key as possible and admitted they didn't love the questions. They change the pop essays all the time, it seems, so don't stress."
