What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty were all incredibly friendly and I had a great time there. I really liked the atmosphere, and it was completely stress-free. They have great opportunities to go study abroad, lots of community service options, and chances to go ride along with medics in helicopters or just go and read stories to children in the cancer ward. There just seemed to be something for everyone." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviews were great. I talked a lot about my undergrad and my thesis I'm currently writing, as well as my volunteer work as an EMT. We also talked about collaboration between med-students, and what field I wanted to go into. Very relaxed, nothing to worry about. Towards the end of the interviews, it seemed as if they were trying to sell the school to me, and told me why they were so happy there." Report Response
