What impressed you positively?

"I like the small class sizes. The facilities are really nice and given that they are a newer school, they are really receptive to student feedback and continuous improvement. I also loved LeAnn Hunter's comment during the orientation, "Once you are admitted, the competition is over. We want you to all pass and become doctors."" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school has issues with study space. I know they are trying to fix that, but it is a common concern among current students." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had two reviewers. One had viewed my file, while the other did not. They use a standard set of questions. There are only two "ethical" questions which have been listed by previous posters. The format was actually easier than some of the less structured interviews I have been on. Also, given the interview questions, it is clear that they are looking at you as a whole person and not just your academic record." Report Response
