What impressed you positively?

"Lenoa Edwards is delightful. She knew my name right off the bat without having seen me for more than a minute. The students are extremely happy, LLU's students are among the best clinically trained students in the state of CA (which says a TON), The dean is amazing and takes time out of his busy day to spend at least an hour with us. Also, they hold a memorial service for the families of the cadavers after anatomy lab is finished. I just found that amazing as well!! The religion aspect was perfect. Like the entry above mine said, it is just to emphasize the "making man whole" motto that the schol professes. There are plenty of places to live right near the school and they have on-campus housing available. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Loma Linda is a wonderful place. Lenoa Edwards is a wonderful person, and Loma Linda's emphasis on treating the whole person is wonderful as well. You feel like you are joining a family when you are there and you do not have to be SDA to get this feeling. Many of the students I met were not SDA and they couldn't be happier. I wish LLU would get more credit with applicants, but from what I heard, the reputation across the US is strong enough to carry you into the most competitive of residencies. I just loved it there. One interviewer was faculty and the other was a student. A delicious lunch was served, and we got a financial aid talk as well. The only downside is the average student debt which, dare I say, is upwards of $158,000. " Report Response
