What impressed you positively?

"I was really impressed by Buffalo. The schools emphasis on teamwork struck a chord with me, at one point i believe Dean Severin said 'selfishness/cutthroat attitudes arent tolerated here.' It also was evident that Dean Severin not only knew all of his students but how they were doing and many of their aspirations (it sounded like UB does a good job of actively helping you land your desired residency/research gig). Lastly both interviewers were very prepared for my interview and it was obvious that they both had read and reviewed my entire file (which to be honet should be the norm at all schools)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The distance of the school from New York City" Report Response

What are your general comments?
