What are your general comments?

"Overall I was very impressed by the people at MUO. They're extraordinarily dedicated to the success of their med students. Seriously. (Example: there's curriculum time put aside so people can find the specialty that fits their personality the most, and learn more about the "practical" side of medicine). The facilities were good, though nothing amazing. The personality of the place is friendly and it seemed that most of the students were happy there. My interviewers were both very relaxed and made it a very low-stress experience. In fact, I got the impression that they wanted to answer MY questions about the school or Toledo. I had plenty of questions and I felt both my interviewers were able friendly and inviting about answering them. MUO is still a (relatively) new medical school and it's still working out its identity. It's an open environment and seems like a great place to go for med school, though I don't think I'd want to be in Toledo for when I actually have the time to enjoy the place I live (i.e. after med school). The weather is mild for the Midwest." Report Response
