What impressed you positively?

"The relativelly new facilities, the amout of free time students seemed to have. The attention given to each Md/PhD. student as opposed to a bigger program." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The parking, it seems to me a big hazzle to find a place to park on a daily basis. Although Portland has a great public transportation system which would be great during the first two years of medica school and the PhD. graduate years, it could potentially be a major problem in the 3th and 4th year if you are on call and need to be in the hospital at 2am" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"not much, everything ran quite smooothly" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Portland is a great medium size city which I recommend everyone to take an extra day or two after the interview and visit. The interview day itself was a bit hectic since the architectural feautures of the campus seemed to be a challenege for me to get around and find the proper building/ office where my next interview should be. However, with that being said the interviers were quite friendly and very understanding if I was a bit late since they had my schedule and based on their locations it was quite impossible to be on time, every time. And despite all that some were quite intersted in continuing to have a conversation with me, 15-20 minutes after my scheduled time. Overall it was a great experience and if you are appliying to the Md/PhD. program it would be a great place to do research and help shape the direction this program will take as its relativelly new at this point."
