What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I loved Maryland SO MUCH! The school's curriculum is GREAT! You are in the clinic first semester of D1. They have all of the specialties right there at the school, and because they are in Baltimore they will have a diverse patient base. Baltimore itself is awesome, you can see M&T and Camden yards from a few of the buildings, and the Inner Harbor is about a 15min walk. The school is also very student friendly and is surrounded by all other professional schools e.g. Law, Med, Pharm, etc. The pre-clinic and clinic are great too, there is a CPU and monitor at every chair. Very technologically advanced. Also, Dr. Lyon. He interviewed my and was so pleasant and relaxed. The room we were in was like a sauna, but he was so cool and casual, he suggested I take my jacket off, and the interview went on from there, very conversational and easy-going. They do write down notes, so don't be taken aback if it seems like your interviewer is not paying much attention to you. Dr. Lyon still seemed extremely interested in everything I was telling him. Overall, the school is unbelievable and the day was such an enjoyable experience!" Report Response
