What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. I did realize that you can just take the subway everywhere though. I didn't take a taxi once the whole time I was there (and I stayed in Chestnut Hill, far away from campus). Just take the subway to Hynes station and walk from there. It's a nice walk. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was one on one in some vacant room in the school (mine happened to be in a library study room). All the interviewees sit through some presentations, they get split up and see their respective interviewers and then spend the rest of the day touring the campus and the new clinic. I enjoyed my day there and did not find anything negative about the interview, school, location, or people." Report Response
