What impressed you negatively?

"Who builds a medical school on a mountain? Generally, med schools and hospitals are built in the most ghetto and densely populated part of town so that patients can be served more efficiently. Some of the facilities looked a little run-down. They definitely don't have the money/resources that most private and even some public schools have. There are only two restaurants on the hill." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved this interview. My interviewer was very laid-back, very friendly. She asked the standard questions, but she was genuinely interested in my responses and shared many anecdotes with me. My second interviewer did most of the talking. She just told me more about Portland and why she came to OHSU. " Report Response
