What are your general comments?

"my interview was not a real MD physician, but a Ph.D. researcher so I don't think he can really accurately judge me as a future physician. Told me that he had 30 minutes before he had to do stuff for his lab experiement. Looked at the clock 6 times (I counted) and when we talked about my CAM research, he ridiculed it and said it was a "sham" He then criticized the school's new Integrated curriculum. My guy was basically a jerk to me. Visit was very nice, saw the hospitals, lecture halls, etc. Bookstore is very small as is the gym. People tend to live far away from the school, either in Center city or Roxborough. student showed us the anatomy lab and we got to see a body which was very interesting. Lunch was $8 food vouchers and the food was pretty good." Report Response
