What impressed you negatively?

"There seems to be only 3 buildings (one being admin) dedicated to med school education. The library was relatively small and there didn't seem to be any space allocated for med students (eg study rooms, rec rooms, or computer labs). The med school cafe doesn't know how to make mexican food!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The students that I met weren't overly optimistic about the school. In fact, they had many negative things to say. But it was good to get a realistic depiction of what the education at Davis was going to be like. I still like Davis for some of its good qualities. My interview was sincere and was concerned about my interview day being thorough and generally a good experience. " Report Response
