What are your general comments?

"The interview was very relaxed, the students were really happy and friendly, and the faculty seem great. The classes were good (though there is a ton of lecture) and the students rock their boards. The campus is ugly, at least compared to mine, and the building that you spend all day in is solid dark brick, and it's ugly too. The hospitals are excellent- especially the children's hospital, which is incredible. The weather is . . . good except when it is either raining or hot and humid, which is a good deal of the year. I like the cold and am not fond of hot/humid weather, so I wasn't a fan." Report Response
