What impressed you negatively?

"nothing was really a surprise." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was a pleasant one. The interviewers were nice and welcoming, but those antics weren't enough for me to see through the poor clinical facilities they had. The students looked a bit introverted compared the other schools I interviewed at. It appeared to me that UCSF students did not like where they were. All in all, I was looking for a school offering more in terms of clinical training." Report Response
