What impressed you positively?

"How high tech the school is. They have streamlined lectures, top-notch simulated robots." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Size of school. The med school is really really small. The library is also small. The floors seem like they are stacked on top of each other with narrow stairs leading from floor to floor. Also, in anatomy lab, there are 8 students to a cadaver, which is a pretty high number. Finally there is no student housing so everyone lives off-campus." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

" When they schedule you for 11am arrival, it means "arrival". Interviews are not till the afternoon and you spend the first couple of hours listening to financial aid advisors about costs and take a tour of the campus etc." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself was very relaxed. I was asked the typical interview questions (see below). The campus is small. There are no "facilities" as such, such as housing, gyms etc. The library is small. Anatomy labs seem like they can get crowded with 8 students to a cadaver. They are pretty-techno savvy, with the simulation robots and the streamlined lectures. Classroom are decent sized with wireless connections. They are also trying a new problem-based-learning curriculum. Instead of sitting in lectures, students work in small groups on case studies mentored by a faculty member. Its a more hands-on approach with no classroom time for those who hate sitting in hours of lecture." Report Response
