What impressed you positively?

"They had a great tour that really showed off the assets of the school-- such as the amazing views from the library and anatomy lab. Also, the general attitude of the school was quite unique-- much more patient-centered. Also, there was a list of classes that we could attend, and I was able to sit in on a few." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My faculty interview was in the OR! Well, in a non-operating room in the OR... but that meant that the doctor was on call, and he had to leave after less than thirty minutes, which was not nearly enough time considering that it is a closed-file interview. However, the interviewer did offer that I could come back and shadow him in surgery if I had time during the interview day... Luckily, the student interview lasted more than an hour, and I had plenty of time to get my points acrossed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That place is a maze!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 8 AM for a short orientatio, then off to my morning faculty interview. After that, I attended part of two classes, which was really awesome. The professors spent a lot of time discussing the patient side of medicine, psycho-social implications and the like. There was also a guest at one of the classes who discussed her experiences with in vitro fertilization. Then there was lunch and a tour. After that was the second interview, and I was done by 4 PM. This was the best interview day at what I now consider to be the best medical school I visited. " Report Response
