What impressed you positively?

"I have a close connection with PCOM, so I already know a lot about the school. However, hearing these things again from the administration, faculty, and students just impressed me all the more. Their clinical training is fabulous, no matter if you want to do primary care or a specialty." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I know that a lot of people think the area is bad. I have lived in Philadelphia for the past three years, and there is NO "safe" place in the city. If you are afraid of diversity, then PCOM is probably not the place for you. What many people don't notice is that there are really nice, "safer" suburbs on the other side of City Ave." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was VERY laidback. It was conducted by Carol Fox and a professor. The interviews are usually conducted by an additional faculty member and Deborah Erdner (instead of Carol Fox, I was told), but she was not present that day. They were both so nice. Don't sweat it - I was nervous for no reason. In the morning we met with a member of administration for breakfast and he told us some things about the school. There was a total of 5 of us interviewing that day. After all the interviews we had a tour guided by a 2nd year student." Report Response
