Not of admissions, we already met with her). Also, anatomy lab is holed up in windowless basement." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall great experience. Really laid-back and low stress. Interviews were very conversational and friendly. School seems to be activiley working to create a more diverse student body. The students and dean of students mentioned it a lot and of the five of us who interviewed that day, we were comprised of an African-American male, African female, two Arab-Americans (one Christian, one Muslim), and one white female (not one white male in sight!). Student body seems really tight-knit, friendly, and sociable. They also seem to really like the block curriculum setup and love the school in general." Report Response
