8 out of 10
At the school
"What brings you to Baltimore? "
"Would you explain your research experience?"
"Do you have any experience in a clinical setting?"
"What makes a "good" doctor?"
"Talked a friend who's a med. student; read website; plenty of sleep "
"The fact that such a high percentage of their med students get into one of the top residency programs in the country -- class times only from 8am-1pm"
"It's location in Baltimore -- shady part of town."
"That for a couple hours we'd be sitting in a room with all the other applicants and med students who were supposed to be "chatting" with us but were at the same time evaluating us"
"The school, faculty, and students are ultra impressive and they're not afraid to let you know it when you get there. The emphasized over and over that they were not competitive and that it was the undergraduate institution that is competitive. I thought the sitting around in a room with all the other applicants for so long was stressful and created a strange environment; knowing straight out that only about 2-3 of the 10 would be accepted furthered that feeling."
