What impressed you negatively?

"Lets start...The campus. Lots of it is under construction currently. The parts I did see seemed very sterile and cool. Part of this is the southwest in general....The anatomy lab. 4 tv's for the entire lab. If you were in the middle of the room, you might have a hard time seeing them. Students had to used books for reference, whereas other schools have computers and flatscreens by each cadaver for easy, fast, clear reference.....On site clinic---which I had to ask to see---no students do anything there. seemed pointless....Technology. This is absolutely ridiculous. They dont trust their students. To avoid people surfing the web, the only places on campus are the library and one other place (dont remember). This is incredibly inconvenient......Living...They took us into the common area of the apartments and then proceeded to talk about the oncampus living but showed absolutely no pictures."

What are your general comments?

"Dr. Page was awesome. He seemed like a very nice guy. We started the day by meeting with him and he was very informative and useful. Next was the interview. Dr. Kim was incredibly unprofessional. Initially I felt good because they were asking hard questions and they seemed to be selective. Afterwards, (and I did well and got accepted) I thought back to the interview and was blown away at how rude he was. He kept looking at the wall while I responded and looking at his watch. After the last interview, he quickly left to go to work. He was obviously in a hurry, but too bad. The other doctors (jenkins and a woman) were very nice and polite though. The admissions staff was polite, but not always the most informed. People, this appears to be a reoccuring theme. Otherpeople have had similar experiences this year that I have talked to, and SDN feedback shows similar things in the past. I understand the board scores are good, but students can pass the boards at any school. It is the people, facilities and experience that are also important, and I felt that they were severly lacking in some of those places." Report Response
