I just got back from my interview at Pitt Med. Some news and thoughts... -they will be interviewing through March. -Decisions will go out at the end of February, however, that is a tentative date. The dean said that they may need a week or two worth of leeway with that date, but they are trying very hard to get decisions out on Feb 28th. After that it will be rolling. -Impressions (briefly): Pitt is a very good school, with a reputation to match and I liked it very much. THe faculty and administration seem very student friendly; student needs/concerns are taken seriously and addressed promptly. "They will bend over backwards for you" as my host said. The curriculum is interesting and most people love it, but even if you don't it doesnt matter - since they emphasize responsibility - that means you don't have to go to lecture/PBL if you don't want to and learn on your own if it suits you. I stayed with three guys who were living in a house that they rented and they were very very nice. We all went out to a bar on friday night after my interview and got loaded. Gotta love that. Pittsburgh is not as bad as people make it out to be. I mean it's not NYC/SF/Chicago, but there is plenty to do and see and the people are friendly. Transportation is easy enough, you dont need a car - the buses are free for Pitt students are seem to work well. Housing is decent and eay to find in Squirrel Hill or Shadyside (nearby neighborhoods). Drawbacks: -population of the city is relatively old. There are not many young people outside of Pitt and Carnegie Mellon students. -Also, Pittsburgh "is not a place to come to pick up women " according to one of my hosts However, he had a girlfriend so I don't know how much to take that to heart. -I didn't like the PBL rooms, anatomy lab, or the lecture rooms. These facilities were dreary and didn't seem like a particularly great place to hang out or spend time. I guess they are not supposed to be, but other schools' facilities were much nicer. Anyway, I'll stop now, email or private message me if you have any questions...Thank god, I think that was my last interview! Feels good!
