What impressed you negatively?

"I wish there was like a central presentation to sell the school more. Both my interviewers were late, however not really bad cause you cant blame them theyre busy people.

What are your general comments?

"Come 30 min early. It seems like everyone knows your interviewing. Its really odd a lot of people come up to you and say hi. Since it was the first day of interviews it seemed like everyone was staring. When you come to the office they hand you your schedule and paperwork. They give you detailed info on how to meet your interviewers. You get a tour and lunch. The tour was quite informal, but relaxing and cool. I'd easily be happy there. Even though its not quite pass/fail its a really great environment. Also, the medical school isnt isolated from the hospitals. They are all interconnected. In fact physicians, surgeons, nurses, etc all walk through the medical school and interact frequently with students. Everywhere you look you see doctors. Its a really cool feeling. Plus, the doctors are quite down to earth and cool. Many came up to us. Lastly, we met with Dean Jones. He is a cool guy, and really knows a lot about you. Overall, a fun but long day."
