What impressed you positively?

"Friendliness of students and administrative staff (the dean of admissions, i believe it was, introduced himself to me while i was waiting for my student interview), well cared for campus, la county hospital is AMAZING...there is also a private hospital there so you see both socioeconomic extremes...anatomy lab seemed nice...great lunch" Report Response

"surrounding area (LA is huge); student interviewer had a hard time thinking of questions to ask; small, almost useless library" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing important...the day ended earlier than i expected" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very low stress, nice, modern facilities, great hospital, but the area is not so appealing. All in all, I enjoyed the experience. I was surprised that the student who interviewed me could think of few questions to ask. The faculty interview was very comfortable and conversational. All in all it seems like they're moving in the right direction, with a large number of research buildings opening soon, as well as a replacement for la county hospital opening in 2007" Report Response
