What impressed you positively?

"The enthusiasm of all the students I met. Of all the places I ended up interviewing, none of them were happier or friendlier than those at Michigan. The same could be said of the admissions faculty and the two doctors with whom I interviewed. Also the flexibility of taking quizzes anytime between Friday afternoon and Monday morning is very appealing. Straight P/F classes for 2 years. Med students at U-M have a life outside the classroom."
