What impressed you negatively?

"The cost!! The student I stayed with pointed out that the 40K tuition that they state for the first year is only for three quarters and after first year you are enrolled for 4 quarters/year so it is really ~$52000/yr. ouch! Plus, I heard some of the basic science lecturers are pretty lousy... doesn't sound like a great value considering the price you pay." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is very little scholarship based fin aid, especially for OOS students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone arrives 7:45 and meets the admissions director for an informal Q/A session. Interviewers will have your essays, but not your GPA/MCAT and the interviews/adcom eval counts ~80% and your numbers ~20% for admission(which is cool for some of us). From 12-1 there is lunch, Q/A session with 2 students (one 1st year and one 2nd) and a brief tour (would have been nice to meet more students and maybe some 4th years). One interview in the morning and one in the afternoon... for me, neither one was very difficult, despite other comments on here. " Report Response
