What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing, Boston's full of life, the students were the most laid back of any campus, and there wasn't a sense of arrogance. The curriculum is changing (and it sounds like for the better) with an Introduction to the Profession course, early clinical rotations, and more continuity between rotations. There are lots of opportunities for those interested in global health. My student host was awesome. He took me around town to dinner and to a movie at night with his classmates." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost of living is very high. While many students stay for 5 years, cost of additional degrees (like MPH) is not covered. I can't bring my car because there's no place to park." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I never expected this interview, so it was a pleasant surprise. Based on being grilled by one of my interviewers (see thesis question), I don't expect to get accepted. All in all though, it was a great experience and I'm happy just to have visited the campus. The school, without a doubt, blows the competition out of the water. They're revamping the New Pathway program for next year and I'm thrilled with their emphasis on PBL. It seems like you can do anything you want here." Report Response
