What was the most interesting question?

"-If my friends were here, how would they describe me?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"They said that they were there to come to my defense when committee deliberated so was there anything in my file that I would like to explain. (ie. bad grades, PCAT, etc.) I also found this refreshing that they give you a chance to explain the circumstances you were in. Other schools would just look over it and chalk it up to being lazy." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"-The "homey" feel that they give off - Their students seem to really know staff members and vice versa. - I had lunch with Dean Davis! - I met the people who were part of the Admissions Committee - The simulations lab. This alone solidified my decision! "Manikins" that would react to you or what dosage you give them. They sweat, scream, & give birth! Now that's a school I want to learn at!" Report Response

"- The new curriculum is 21 credit hours (different from what the website listed) I would have like to ask more questions about that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I LOVED my visit here. They are really personal. What I found impressive was the lunch with staff, students, and admissions committee. During the lunch, you get to meet the people voting to see if you are accepted to it's nice that they get to meet you and not just look at your black & white file. It makes you more 3-dimensional instead of 2. The interview process didn't even feel that way. I felt like I was having a conversation with a professor during office hours. It was super relaxing."
