"The facilities are small and not as high tech as most school. Despite having diversity within the student body, the racial relations seemed a bit strained more so than at many of the schools I've visited...so much for the progressive North.

What are your general comments?

"Initally I was nervous, but the students are soo relaxed that it quickly faded. The interviewer started off with a few hard hypothetical questions and then wanted to know what questions I had. Everyone who had that guy had a short interview. Tour was nice. Med students were great and answered all the questions we asked. Lunch was good, but avoid the macaroni salad. A morning interview allows you to be relaxed for the rest of the day. " Report Response
