What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were EXTREMLY, EXTREMELY non-threatening and just wanted to get to know a little bit more about me. We got to see the cadaver lab (very cool) and the simulation lab. Also the hospitals are some of the best in the state. Overall, the Christian atmosphere lends a kind, relaxed atmosphere." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The schedules were more of guidelines than schedules... but like I said, it is very relaxed there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Loma Linda is next door to the freeway jungle. I hate L.A.-ish stuff, and being right by the 10 and 210 freeways, etc. kind of sucks... of course most medical schools are in big-city areas, so I better get used to it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I couldn't have asked for better interviews. The Christian atmosphere is very, very nice. I'm not SDA, but I am protestant and no one seems to have a problem with that. The Campus is not enourmous, which I like. Lenoa was amazingly organized and knew my name when I ran into her on the stairs. I have a very good chance of being accepted, and, if I am, It will be difficult to not attend Loma Linda!" Report Response
