What was the most difficult question?

What impressed you positively?

"The people were all very nice, Detroit has a good urban feel that I prefer, and the area around campus did feel or look as ghetto as the reputation would have you believe." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Students seem rather stressed out, facilities are average or a little below average, and the anatomy labs and many of the rec rooms were dreary and underground. Also, practically everyone's in-state, so I may feel a bit left out." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Michigan doesn't let out-of-state students apply for Michigan state residency; you're stuck with that awlful out-of-state tuition for all 4 years. Michigan looks and feels like a state going bankrupt, so it isn't surprising." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I had a really good experience and felt that I got the entire "Detroit/WSU" experience. Med students were all extremely nice; my host took me to a frat-type party of M2 students; I was surprised that med students here partied down like regular undergrads. My student tour guide had an adorable Midwest accent and I was rapidly developing a crush on her. WSU seems like an excellent place if you are interested primarily in the clinical aspect of medicine (as I am), and their ER trauma experience is probably unmatched. However, the school (and the state in general) do have a run down feel, like Rivendell in LOTR where the best days were behind them. It's difficult to explain, there's just a slightly depressing feel to the entire school/city. That said, I think I'd be just fine going there if I don't get into somewhere better." Report Response
