"That one of my interviewers would be so cool and we would have a frightening number of things in common. New cirriculum is P/F and they have PBL, which I'm kinda on the fence about. Yayy for four years of navy blue scrubs Class of '11." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was there with two other interviewees, one who arrived very late (but they accomodated him). They did not have a big information session or multimedia presentation. They did brief us on financial aid. There were two seperate interviews with different people. They take you to their offices. My two interviewers were very different from each other. I felt really good about the first one and not so good about the second. Students take you on a quick tour and then to lunch. You have a lot of opportunity to talk to them in a very small group.
