What impressed you negatively?

"I had been to Hershey before (for the theme park) so I kinda knew what to expect- but it's very different attending a med school that is not in a city. I thought going there that it would be a positive for me, but after speaking with the students and spending time in the area you really get a sense for how isolated you are. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good experience- I would be happy going here, although the area is a bit isolated. My first interviewer spent the whole time flipping through my file and asking me questions one by one- it wasn't very conversational at all. He also wasn't able to answer any of my basic questions about the curriculum, which I found strange. My second interview was great- very conversational and relaxed. " Report Response
