"The average and below-average USMLE Step 1 scoring of this school's students compared to national figures. Also, the 1st and 2nd year classrooms seem old and gloomy.

What are your general comments?

"My first interview went extremely well, but the second interviewer seemed to be studying me rather than actually listening to what I had to say. It was later in the day, and he seemed like he just wanted to go home, and looked down at his watch twice, which I thought was pretty rude. " Report Response
