What impressed you positively?

"Everything. The interview was so low-stress. Even with the faculty, I felt like I was talking to a friend. The tour guides were enthusiastic, the hospital is huge and full of opportunity, heck, even the hospital food was good." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Greenville isn't the greatest city on earth, but there are things to do, and you are only 1.5 hours from the beach and Raleigh." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Ignore the urban legends. You don't have to prostrate yourself and chant 'Primary Care' to get in. Mainly, ECU wants students that are committed to providing medical care in the state, in whatever facet you choose. If you, like 85% of those interviewing, don't know what you want to pursue yet, be honest and tell them. They'll thank you for it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I've said most of it. I like that it isn't a large group to be interviewed, only 2 or 3. Everyone is very warm and friendly. The facilities are better than other SDN reviewers complain, and there is a lot of construction going on. I cannot say enough about the school, and am anxious to start there (hopefully)."
