What impressed you positively?

"The location of the school is great. It's very safe and beautiful. Others say that there's nothing to do there, but I drove for about 10 minutes and found myself in beautiful downtown Hartford. It was aroud 4:00 in the afternoon, so I didn't go around looking for clubs and bars and stuff, but I'm sure there's a reasonable amount of things to do if you're only a few minutes from downtown. Also, I found out there were some sweet mountain biking trails behind the school. The curriculum seems very well balanced. Strong academics, but sufficient clinical emphasis also. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dr. Thibodeau is not as welcoming or dynamic as you would like, however he will be upfront with you about whatever you want to know, so I guess that's not really a negative afterall. Everyone seems really tired, but I guess that just says that you have to work hard to do well there which also isn't really a bad thing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience overall. They will not sugar coat things at all, but you don't really want to be tricked into going somewhere, I suppose. So you learn everything you need to know about the school. I like UConn. I think they are looking for a very specific kind of student, and those kinds of students really love it and thrive there. You just have to be what they're looking for. You have to interview there to find out what I'm talking about. A lot of the rumors I had heard from crybabies on this website were put to rest when I went there. They were very well prepared, and had read through my application thoroughly, but they were not interrogatory or beligerant. They just want to make sure you are not a slacker and take it seriously. If you're prepared it won't be stressfull." Report Response
