What impressed you positively?

"The students seemed genuinely happy. Philly is a great city." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They really need to narrow down their applicants. I was informed that the school selected around 70+ people to interview for 8 or fewer spots. My track specifically (neuropsychology) was interviewing 30 people for 2-3 spots. It's very disheartening to spend so much effort and money and then get to the school and find out that the chances of being selected are so small. Also, one of my interviewers hardly interviewed me...and preempted the conversation by saying that all the applicants looked alike to him, and that selections were pretty much random. That wasn't really what I wanted to hear after I'd worked so hard to get there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The student social hour the night before was pretty excruciating. Half the students I spoke with were condescending and acted like they didn't want to be talking to me. I'm a friendly, social person, and I was blown away by the lack of enthusiasm and respect. Also, on interview day, we didn't even get to take a tour because of a city-wide funeral procession.
