What are your general comments?

"The school is a perfect fit for me. Everyone wants to see you succeed-even other students! There isn't a competitive nature like you might find at other schools. There was a rumor that Howard was a poor school because they didn't have microscopes or some such nonsense. Truth is they have a computer program where you can view slides and such at high magnification and resolution, so the microscopes aren't necessary. They have everything and everyone available to ensure that quality physicians are walking out after 4 years. If you think this is a "safety" school, don't apply. They'll know, and it's not the kind of student they're looking for. If you are a minority, don't automatically expect to get in-they don't have a quota to reach, so you have got to bring something special to the table. The interview is very low stress. They interview a low percentage of applicants, so if you've made it to that point, they already like you (on paper). Time to show them you're not an overachieving gunner robot! Relax, be on time, know your application, and enjoy the day!" Report Response
