What impressed you positively?

"Very friendly staff. They really let us know in the beginning that they were happy we were there and what the admission process was about. The tour of Toledo was nice and the med students who gave us a tour of the campus gave us great insight into the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That we would see a cadaver. We toured the facilities and peeked into the gross anatomy lab. I know as a med student, you get used to working with cadavers but I hadn't seen one before and would have liked to have been a little more prepared mentally! All in all, I am glad that I did, though...there's a first time for everything!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, this is a great school with a strong curriculum. They house 1 of 8 USMLE testing sites in the country which means you are familiar with the facilities and feel more comfortable during the exam. My second interview was a challenge. I was basically put into the philosophical grinder and, at some points, felt a little insulted by some of the comments made. However, I found this session more engaging than intimidating and that is what made my interviewer impressed overall. My first interview was more straightforward - some healthcare policy issues and a general desire to get to know me." Report Response
