What impressed you positively?

"everything was very thorough. i got a really good view of the school depsite there not being any students yet. they really made up for that factor. everyone was so accommodating and friendly too. both of my interviewers had gotten me a drink beforehand and the admissions director called and scheduled a taxi for me to the airport."

"All students will surely need a car starting the first year. Apparently, the places were the clinical experiences take place can be as far away as 45 minutes!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"CLEVELAND CLINIC LERNER COLLEGE (not case) - Very impressive place. I really liked the whole transitional research ideal and how accomplished everyone at the clinic is. I'm still a little skeptical about the curriculum and how much independence it requires. But, supposedly this is the new wave of the future in curriculum (?) The interviews were long and the interviewers both really knew my file well. Everyone is real helpful and friendly. Dean Hutzler, Dean Fishleder, and Ms. Meyers are all really great and they talked to us like it was a conversation rather than an interview experience. Overall a really interesting day and program."
