What impressed you positively?

"The morning sessions are extremely informative. You really get a sense for what they have to offer. I think that the curriculum is set up beautifully. The weekly PBL and the immediate exposure to patient care is phenomenal. Also, they have not given out all of their acceptances before you get there, so you are actually competing for an available spot." Report Response

"That neither interviewer asked me if I had questions. Not that I did, but I was expecting them to ask." Report Response

"That the interviews are in the afternoon, and they occur in real time. You never know if you are going to be called for an interview, or a tour. You are just kind of waiting around." Report Response
