What impressed you positively?

"The surrounding hospital complex! It is amazing. It is huge and a very busy place. The school facilities are not new and not very impressive but the oppurtunities at the surrounding hospitals are amazing. They said that the hospital complexe serves approx. 6 million people in Detroit and the surrounding areas. One of the largest patient populations to a single hospital in the country. The tour guides said that because of the state that Detroit is in, you will see very interesting diseases and conditions in your patients. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviewed (The interviewer was very nice and honest with me about the process and my strengths and weaknesses. Very complete interview overall.) Tour (students loved the school and were proud to be learning medicine at Wayne. Both loved the oppurtunities to work with the underserved and to take advantage of the oppurtunities at the hospital.) Overall, I was pleasantly shocked. I went to Detroit thinking that I wasn't going to like it becaues I am not the biggest fan of Detroit, but I really ended up like the school and all. If I get in, this school will definitely be an option for me. " Report Response
