What impressed you positively?

"Beautiful hospitals, all interconnected. I was surprised at what a large complex the school and its affiliated hospitals was. The students that I met were very down-to-earth and real. I'm personally not thinking about having kids while in med school, but from what I heard, the school is extremely supportive of its students in so many ways, including helping women schedule their years to include family." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Although the hospitals were very nice and modern, the whole complex sits atop a hill. It just seemed like kind of a weird place to have a hospital." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the day was fantastic... the students that came in to talk to us and give a tour were so great and enthusiastic. The interviews were very challenging in that they asked very personal questions to get an idea of who I was. Although I felt a little emotionally drained after it all, I genuinely appreciated those questions because I got to show them some of the more intangible stuff about me that can't be written out on an application. Both my interviewers were extremely nice people with warm, friendly demeanors. They were the epitome of dream interviewers in that they were good conversationalists, good listeners, not pushy, and not out to get you in any way. " Report Response
