What impressed you positively?

"I was extremely impressed with Yale. The Yale System is amazing - it really gives students the opportunity to pursue other interests and get involved during med school. The people at Yale seem extremely committed to service and the community. They have endless opportunities to get involved and put your skills to use. The students seem very happy - the Yale System seems to foster a very noncompetitive environment. There are tons of opportunities for research and international experiences. The thesis requirement seems rather flexible, you can do basic science or clinical research. The tuition free 5th yr is awesome - you can get funded to do a variety of different things."

What are your general comments?

"Both interviews, the student interview and the faculty interview, were very laid back. I think some of the other interviewees may have had 2 faculty interviews, I'm not sure. The interviews are open file and very conversational. Both interviewers were very fair and took the opportunity to get to know me (very low stress)." Report Response
