What impressed you positively?

"The dean of the school was personally with us for most of the day and spoke about the school. The interview led by the faculty member was great. From the beginning, he got right to the point. He basically laid it out for me to tell him everything I wanted the admissions committee to know about me." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview led by the student. There was way too informal. She hardly asked me any questions and I left wondering what her impression could possibly be of me because I didn't think she got to know who I am well at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I learned that many students must spend their 3rd and 4th years in Harlingen, TX for clinicals. Some students don't like that but I think it could be a good way to have more personal attention (they don't have residents there)and a great way to experience what it's like working in a near border town with a large population of hispanics.
