What impressed you positively?

"Nice lunch, nice people, nice presentation, surprisingly innovative program for a midwestern, flat as a pancake state. Great financial aid presentation. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cruddy bottom floor to the med school, with a cruddy anatomy lab. Low ceilings, cramped, dingy, and they left what looked like a bag of kidneys laying out in the middle of it. made some of the weaker stomached students a little quesey!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not alot.......It's not too easy to find information on the web site, but they'll show you everything." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great experience, very low stress and extremely friendly. The school facilities are not so nice, but they are building a new campus which will be completed in 2005. They seemed to match candidates with an approaopraite interviewer, for example, I'm a humanities major and they matched me with their humanities/ethics professor. If you want them to know about you ahead of time, call the office and emphasize that you definately want them to read your essay, it's all they'll get access to and only if you ask. If you feel that it's a good essay, it's to in your best interest to do so." Report Response
