What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of excitement among students, their lack of participation in the interview day. Seems that distance lectures are used quite a bit. They didn't show us the library on the tour--this is where I'd spend most of my study time!! The tours should be led by students, not admissions people. The gross lab is located across the parking lot/street from the medical education building. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school felt cultish to me. One interviewer fell asleep during my interview, or at least it looked like it. I asked what weaknesses/hospital the school had, and he said 'none'. Big red flag. They didn't seem that concerned with getting to know me as a person. The other interviewer talked about himself for 20+ minutes before asking me a question. Just didn't get a good vibe from this school, but hopefully others will find a fit. " Report Response
