What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The King/Drew hospital is having some financial difficulties, like many hospitals around the country, and some programs are being eliminated. I don't know how much of an impact that will have on the medical students, but that would definitely affect my decision if I got in. We did not have a financial aid discussion, so I have no idea what the cost will be for an out-of-state student." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a very good day, there were about 25 students there and we all got one-on-one interviews. We had the opportunity to hear from the Dean of students and the Dean of admissions, both of whom were very friendly. The interview is very low pressure so don't worry. The LA weather is awesome!!"
