What impressed you positively?

"The library, my interviewers, and the vice-dean." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I am someone looking for the best medical education, not nice weather (which seems to draw most to Nova). In that regard, Nova seemed adequate. The facilities were nice, but I did hear from current students that several of the Profs don't speak English clearly. This is a HUGE problem for me. The interview day was punctuated by an army recruiter who spoke to a quite captive audience for some 20 minutes. Highly unprofessional and rude, in my opinion. All faculty members did, however, impress me greatly." Report Response
