Report Response

"Read information package and SDN of course. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Clean building looks more like a hotel than a school of med... good students (honest and down to earth)... the dean is interesting guy with great attitute... but then again you have to see the big picture. The school presents this professionalism and mature place to study with a well spoken friendly dean. I wonder if that was a show or for real." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Time was not so well planned out... I don't want to hear.. okay lets watch this tape till someone come to take you.. there. It is not useful... it is just a gap filler. We did not get a tour around campus... just the med building and even than it was short. I am sure it is all new, clean and high tech. Students where open and honest when asked questions. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"no one walks around in Ft.L... even from the hotel to the school which is 10min walk. People take the shuttle." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think it went well... but than again I was being myself and being honest. My advice to everyone is do this. It is better to match with a school that fits and likes your character rather than be unhappy for 2-4 years. My interviewer (1 was not very nice... paterson seemed a bit unfriendly... maybe it is an act) Barkus was very nice and the young lawyer Ferroro really nice and down to earth. He was polite and seemed interested." Report Response
