What impressed you positively?

"The childrens hospital is awesome, the regular hospital is level 1 tramau and since this school is in the middle of ghetto they get all kinds of patients, the school is really trying to improve their image, they are building a brand new building which we may not get to use but it shows that progress is being made, plus they seemed very flexible with everything, from where to do residency to adding extra years to MD/PhD (althought there may not be $$ for it)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"still on probation, but as far as I could tell (maybe I'm being way naive) they are on probation not because students become bad doctors but because the schools facilities are poor (need more space, no money) So the probation does not bother me. The school is in the middle of bad neighborhood (was told, "its not dangerous, just dirt poor"), also not as much funding for MD/PhD as some other schools, lab buildings are run down it seemed, even thought that is superficial" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"had med school interview first which went ok but was a little shorter than usual, then had orientation, lunch, then talked to more scientists, some of whom where dry (wish I knew more about their research so I could converse with them), the MD/PhD director was great to talk to, very conversational, then I talked to and MD/PhD and he said he basically has 2 jobs and its tough but enjoyed it, not too stressfull, then he showed me his lab" Report Response
