What are your general comments?

"I fell in love with the campus immediately. The Director of Admissions spoke to us (4 in the morning, we were joined by 3 more in the afternoon). Then we had our 2 inteviews. Some people had their interviews in the morning and some in the afternoon. My faculty interviewers were laid back, they didn't ask me a lot of questions. It was just us talking about what I'm doing now (since graduation) and them talking about the college of medicine. The lunch to me was the highlight. It showed me how valued we were. It was a catered lunch, unlike the vouchers to eat at the cafeteria that the other schools offer. At the lunch, we interacted with a current students and faculty. After lunch we were given a tour of the hospital by a volunteer. She took us the the pediatric floor. I was very impressed with the facilities. At the conclusion of the day, Penn State jumped to the very top of my list. The campus is beautiful, the faculty and students are friendly, the curriculum is integrated. What more can you ask for in a med school:)" Report Response
