What impressed you positively?

"The tour was fabulous (it's very non-traditional, with a pathology faculty giving a mini-lecture). The hospital was gigantic. The depth and bredth of research is excellent. Stduents seem (on the most part) very happy. The school has money flowing out its ears. MD/PhD is ~1/4 of the medical school class, hence has a big leverage." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"~six faculty semi-formal interviews one group (~15 faculty) conference style interview (MSTP) one one-on-one interview (MD) It was not stressful. Students are very very nice. Research is high calibre. MST program very well run. Andrew and Brian excellent. But I didn't like the city that much and was fairly unimpressed by the students." Report Response
