What impressed you positively?

"It is a nice campus, even though it's in the middle of nowhere. USC has the most beautiful county hospital on the OUTSIDE, Art Deco and all, on the inside it's the most awful piece of poopoo you've ever seen. Not beautiful at all and old, like 60's old. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"My first interview was absolutely fantastic. I forgot we were interviewing. It's a closed-file interview so they basically go through your entire background, up to present day. Then we talked about why USC, and then talked about general things about medicine and USC. He really sold me on USC and discussed how they get gobs of money and are building new hospitals and other building and within a matter of years will become a top school. The student interview was fine, I didn't think she was all that into the interview though. Other than that, the tuition is exorbitant. No other school that I know of requires that you budget 63K a year to go to school. That is absolutely outrageous and no medical school, in my opinion, can be a top one if the students have to be over 200K in debt. Simply not acceptable. Take some of that building money and apply it to tuition adjustments or more scholarships/loans." Report Response
