What are your general comments?

"My faculty interviewer was hard to read, which made me nervous. I couldn't tell how well that interview went even though the questions weren't hard. He wouldn't nod or smile during the interview. My student interview went fine though. I was impressed with the amount and quality of clinical experience that students get at LA county. I wish there was some sort of presentation about the curriculum or financial aid or something. The tour was interesting, but it felt weird walking through the ER and gawking at the patients. The lunch is very posh - at the faculty club. Overall, I think it would be a great school to go to. " Report Response
