What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Try not to sit in the corners of the waiting room, you want to stake out a good spot for the semi-interview meeting with med students. I recommend going to the meet-and-greet the night before in Reed Hall, it was pretty fun and I feel like I got a good impression of the students there." -Posted 11/14/2008 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Much has been said about the period in which interviewers sit with older med students on the admissions committee...as one doctor there put it to me before my interview, that part is "just to weed out the pricks". On the whole the med students were very kind and we talked about all kinds of things...just show you're a well-mannered and kind person. Both interviewers were very nice, interviews were conversational, I was quite impressed all around. It has also been noted that the school is right in the ghetto, which it definitely is. Other parts of Baltimore are pretty nice though, and the rents are low." -Posted 11/14/2008 | Report Response
