"SDN, general interview questions, going to another interview! All unnecessary though - it wasn't the typical 'what are your strengths yadda yaddda yadda'" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The happiness of the students, the manageability of the curriculum and the HUGE clinic and the fact that you get hands-on experience in your first year. Also, it's in a beautiful area of SF. The administration and faculty are all great and accommodating - i didn't meet anyone who was unhappy. It's the Pacific 'family' Even though it's expensive students tend to pay off their student loans after 10 years or so. Not too bad! " Report Response
