What are your general comments?

"Because I really love diversity and the family feeling this school offers I think people really underestimate what Howard offers. Although they said it is hard to get patients, I see that as a positive thing because it trains you for the real world. Especially if you open your own practice you are going to need to know how to be self-sufficient and find your own patient pool. I'm also from the DMV (DC-MD-VA) area so I LOVE DC. It is an amazing city." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The admissions commitee is very friendly when you are at the interview. They were very funny and took away all of my stress. The only advice I would give is that in the past when I called them up I have encountered 2 different people who either sounded really tired or frustrated that I was calling the office. It would just be nice to have a slightly more friendly phone voice. Other than that the faculty was super nice in person and I felt right at home." Report Response
