What impressed you positively?

"the hospital is cool, new, and nice, they've got money, which is nice too. the students are TOTALLY friendly, which surprised me, since i've been to quite a few interviews, and students at other schools didn't even come close to being this nice. also, the faculty i interviewed with were warm and friendly, unlike many of my interviews at some "top ten" schools. i dunno, i think i'd pick penn state just because everyone is so damn supportive of each other. very cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that the day would be so stress-free :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was pretty surprised by this school. i liked it a hell of a lot more than i thought i would, and for a school with such a great program and in such a beautiful place, they keep themselves a pretty good secret. i was very impressed by their facilities, the patient population we would get to deal with (apparently very diverse with a large catchment area, and some pretty cool genetic diseases), and the students and administration. seems like it'd be pretty easy to get to know important people here."
