Absolutely my worst interview experience. I felt like the whole day was rushed, and I didn\'t really get a feel for the school. I\'m not sure I like how the med campus feels like it is part of the huge undergrad campus.
I was pleasantly surprised by this school. Everyone I met - my student host, tour guide, interviewer, and students I talked to while waiting for my host to take me to the train station - were incredibly welcoming. I feel like there is a real community here, and I also like the Jesuit aspect of this school. However, the lack of emphasis on research and the location are huge drawbacks for me.
