What are your general comments?

"Overall, I enjoyed the interview process. I was hesitant in the beginning about going to the interview because of the bad rep USC has been getting lately, but I was surprised that the school was quite nice. PBL seems like an interesting way to learn, but I'm glad their curriculum is not 100% PBL anymore. The mock PBL session was very relaxed. When they remodel the clinic I think the facilities will be top-notch. " Report Response
