"The admissions committee was well organized and the students on campus were very friendly. Getting to see LA county hospital, the anatomy labs, and the research facilities (being built now) was also a plus. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is a consensus among students (and even the faculty) on how much the price-tag hurts. And there is no financial aid session, so the figures on the average debt are different depending on who you ask. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That this interview day is a little different, you do not have a talk from the dean, a presentation from a faculty/committee member on the school, or a student panel/mixer with current students. You have your interviews, a student led tour, and lunch (with your two tourguides) and that's it. I was there from 10-2. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview day was great, interviewers were informal and willing to answer questions. The facilities are extremely nice and well equipped for student use. There is no chance to get to know current students (except for the tour guides), but everyone seems happy and the new cirriculum seems to be doing well. " Report Response
