What are your general comments?

"My interviews were pretty lay back. They just wanted to know me. My first interview went great and I had a serious and somewhat sarcastic second interviewer but we ended up talking about the World Basebal Classic, so it wasn't that bad. The fascilities are not great, neither the passing rate for the USMLE Step 1, but I don't think the school is entirely responsible for the latter. Some student have way too much fun. The culture and people however are great. The style of life is very lay back and the food is awesome. But what impressed me the most was the friendliness of the students. They are like a family, helping each other out, which is a huge plus in my opinion. I wouldn't hesitate to go to Ponce." Report Response
