What impressed you positively?

"Get into your specialities, but I knew that. The students were really cool and social. No arrogance. Some were pretty funny and cool." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I just came from Arizona, which was totally nice and new. Harvard looked ghetto. The student interviewing me hadn't looked at my info and I wasn't super impressed with him, but he was nice enough, I guess. How late you get into the clinic, the stress of the 3rd year, doing rectal exams as a dental student...retarded! I didn't like the lonely feel of the student housing at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The students at Harvard are way cool, but I wasn't impressed with my day to day actions with Bostonian public transport and street people. They were kinda mean and not too laid back. Weird that the students were way cooler!" Report Response
