What impressed you positively?

"Everything. The staff, faculty, and students were all very hospitable and enthusiastic about the new interviewees. They were excited to see the new potential students. Everyone was optimistic about receiving an early interview and your chances of being accepted. The fact that there are only two specialty programs(with one being in Oakland) so students get a wide variety of special cases during their tenure as students. The public transportation in San Francisco is excellent, and the city and bay area are beautiful and full of life." Report Response
