What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were fine, and we were taken to the local hospitals to tour them (all connected by tunnels). Students seemed happy there and the tuition is pretty good for in-state students.My interviewer also cleared up misconceptions about the large class size (290)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I felt like the school was good, but I'm not sure if I would pick it other the other school I've been accepted to. It just seemed like people were there but not very excited about anything really. I was hoping to get financial aid information there, but you have to go back on a Saturday for a presentation." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class size for 2006 is going to be 290 students. Also, even after the interview, your stats are still looked at (MCAT, GPA) rather than being graded by interview alone." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a fine experience. I would have liked a more personal interview day with an introduction meeting, financial aid presentation, meeting the dean, etc. Pretty much, the only faculty I met was my interviewer. The facilities are OK, the cafeteria and school itself are not spectacular, but do-able." Report Response
