"the second interview had some questions, but mostly was an on-going back and forth about what i thought about brown and how it would fit into my ideal future as a med student. he talked a lot, but wanted to know exactly why i thought brown would be good for me. he was very specific in explaining that (as associate dean) he was interested in recruiting people to brown that would make it a diverse and unique place filled with people who had "extrodinary" experiences between undergrad and med school. he is not happy with the lack of diversity that the plme crowd has provided the school, and as such, wants to really make sure that any amcas students that they accept will really add to the overall life experience diversity of the student body. he was very excited about my international public health work and told me that in his opinion, moving brown towards a more public health/dual degree focussed school---in direct opposition to moving it towards an md/phd/academic medicine school---was the best thing for brown.

What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING. All of the students were so nice, relaxed, and open. Everyone seems to have a really healthy work/life balance. The admissions staff were SO nice and genuinely wanted us to be there--like, before they "let" me leave, the dean came out to shake my hand and make sure all my questions were answered. During my interview, my interviewer commented that I would work really well with another clinician and kept saying "oh I wish you got to meet him!". After my interview ended, she tracked down his contact info and gave it to me. That genuine attention doesn't happen everywhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students seemed genuinely happy to be there, lots of variety in their education and ways to customize" More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff and my interviewers seemed to all know a lot about my application; they referred to specific items in my application.

There were more students than interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"How well everyone knew my file! From the moment I walked in, the admissions staff and faculty knew who I was and seemed genuinely excited to meet me.

"I think this school is up and coming. The last Dean definitely made it a priority to make Brown a national powerhouse, and the new Dean has vouched the same. the faculty is so warm and caring, the matchlist is unbelievable, everybody at brown values the medcial student, and the clinical training is truly remarkable. once the new med school is built in the jewelry district, and once the merger between care new england and lifespan is complete, the new brown university medical center will rival those other new england medical centers of high eminence. i would be proud to be an alumni of this school" More from this Member | Report Response

"The people were amazing, as were both the PLME and standard admit students, both in their accomplishments and their attitude. Brown really seems to care and want you to be an individual. Can pick the order of the rotations and electives in 4th year(really helps out when getting residency LOR). The INCREDIBLE Match List. My two interviewers were amazing. Rhode Island hospital is great, the ER is one of the best in the US...lots of pathology in the 7 training hospitals." More from this Member | Report Response

"hospitals that students rotate through were amazing" More from this Member | Report Response

"the vibe (very laid back, they emphasize giving their students a lot of freedom), small size (60 students a class, 1000's of MDs, so great student-faculty ratio), great town, surprisingly diverse population, emphasis on clinical training and socially responsible medicine; extensive tour of hospital facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"the school, its student and faculty were wonderful and very encouraging. regardless of where i find myself for my undergraduate medical education, brown will always be a great school in my mind. i was truely impressed. my fellow applicants were also a great group of doctors-to-be. i would be proud to have colleagues such as them, and wish them the very best. everyone was very thoughtful and sincere. a wonderful community and school.

"Seem to be trying too hard to be "laid back" and "cool"." More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school doesn't have its own space- it borrows lecture halls and study areas from the graduate school! The school feels a bit unfocused, perhaps because it's relatively new, and like they're still trying to figure out how to run a medical program. They seem to think that they will be a respected med school just because of their ivy name. In fact, one of my interviewers told me that their only real draw is the Brown name (how's that for honesty?)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Sometimes Brown undergrad students can be a little pompous with their 'ivy leagueness', but really the med school didn't have that vibe at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"eh.. SE new england can be cold, the fact that they interviewed almost 300 people for like, 30 spots. yeah, so not gonna make it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"i think the plme program is what is holding alpert back. in no other university is the 8 year program so valued, and in no other place are there no gpa requirements for the program. this makes a lot of the students, in my opinion, no where near as prepared as the standard route applicants. although racially diverse, this maeks a very experientially undiverse student population. also applies to those linkage programs. " More from this Member | Report Response

"well i dont like the idea of PLME taking up 60% of the class. I dont think PLME kids are prepared for med school. I think they are the ones who are bringing down Brown's reputation and ranking. I hope in the future Brown cuts down PLME to about 10. then it's elite!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm not a huge fan of Providence. And I didn't get to see any of the school's facilities because the day was short due to a storm. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I could have bought more food with the money they gave us for the cafeteria!

"That the people at Brown are so incredible" More from this Member | Report Response

"How cool Providence was, and the great feel of Brown in general. Also, that most of the negative comments on this feedback are probably more reflective of the difficulty to gain admission (small number of spots) than the school. The school is awesome." More from this Member | Report Response

"tremendous school, powerhouse in the future" More from this Member | Report Response

"AMAZING school! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive experience. Brown makes it obvious that they want their interviewees to enjoy the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"PLME's integrate well with standard admits for the most part" More from this Member | Report Response

"I can't say enough good things about this school. I've read some of the other comments and I truly think they are more reflective of the individual who wrote them than the school itself. Brown provides you with the resources to do absolutely anything you want to do with your education. The people are super friendly and the cultural life here great. I can really picture myself living in providence. It isn't huge like chicago. But there is plenty of stuff going on to stay busy and have fun!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A breakfast with current students and admissions staff, then meetings to discuss new changes in the school and curriculum, lunch and then two interviews at the admissions office, followed by a tour of the Rhode Island hospital and a tour of the campus by the director of admissions" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems that Brown pulls out all the stops for their interviewees. I imagine that this is how the Mayo interview must be." More from this Member | Report Response

"morning talks going over curriculum, facilities, different options for research etc. tours of campus, tours of hospital, 2 interviews in afternoon, with admissions staff. Was really impressed all around, everyone was so helpful and eager to promote the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Got there for breakfast, very fancy, everyone in suits trying to eat crumbling danishes. Tours of Mariam hospital and the school, checked it out but not that interesting. Met with admissions staff who are super friendly. Two interviews, one with student which went very well, one with a senior faculty member which was a disaster. Short, they really knew your information" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved it, they really made me feel at home, but I thought one interview went awful. A top choice before interviewing and confirmed by the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great faculty/staff, one of the admissions directors stayed with interviewers throughout the day to make sure things were going well. Very easy to talk to. Day was from 8 am to 5 pm, with all interviews after lunch. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview day was well organized. The weateher was a bit cold for me. I'm from CA. Despite the weather, the facilities looked good and the med students seemed a lot more relaxed than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty awesome--they give you a quick response too, only about a week. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really enjoyed the two faculty members who interviewed me. They had clearly read my application carefully and did not shy away from asking direct questions. Maybe it was the early morning meeting time, but the students we met didn't strike me as particularly interesting. I was really impressed with the amount of resources Brown has to offer. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Summarized it mostly below. Overall, I was definitely impressed. I was worried that the ''standard'' admit students might feel awkward with all the BA/MD and postbac students, but the standard students said it's not really noticable...that the 8-year students often don't even know each other until they get to the first year of med school, so it's not like they've already formed tight cliques." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience at Brown is really nice. First you have breakfast at the Hope Club, this old hotel right near the campus. This is where you get the fin-aid and info about the school presentation and meet with some current students who answer your questions once the admissions staff leaves. From there you take shuttles to RI hospital, and the tour there is amazing, they have a great ER and an incredible children's hospital. Then you return to campus and have two interviews, both with voting members of the committee. Both interviews are low stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I enjoyed it and the hospitals are fantastic. But I was surprised at the extent to which they complimented and praised me. I was told things like "I think you'll definitely get in," and "your recommendations are the strongest I've seen." I've been rejected at plenty of schools and this type of language seemed highly inappropriate, especially since it's a committee decision. Don't insult my intelligence..." More from this Member | Report Response

"2 faculty interviews one 45 min one 25 min. everyone seemed friendly in that small town way. i was impressed with providence and its night life." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, if admitted I'll go to Brown" More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT SCHOOL!" More from this Member | Report Response

"really really great. if i get in, im definitely going. i wish they had given us a tour, and there were quite a few questions that i ended up emailing my interviewer with (he had invited me to email him with any further questions) cuz the info sessions werent all that complete, but all in all, i think its a pretty incredible school. and for reference, ive already gotten into 7 other schools, so its not like im desperate or anything. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a really great time...it will be tough to turn down Brown" More from this Member | Report Response

"my experience was very positive. if accepted at Brown, I would most likely go." More from this Member | Report Response

"Best interview day yet! Brown does such a good job showing off their program and making you feel welcome. Because they interview so few standard route students, they know everyone's file by heart. It's now one of my top schools. Breakfast with students in the morning followed by curriculum and finaid briefs. The finaid people seem like they really work with you and the debt load is way below average. Then you go to RI General, which is a wonderful hospital. You do lunch and a tour with a 4th year and a Brown Doc. I thought having the alumnus on the tour was really great. You get alot of information even 4th Year students can't give you. Brown really owns the RI healthcare system and you have so many options for clinical rotations. You can even do rotations away to try out other places for residencies. Alot of students do international programs and independent study. You can even create your own electives. The interviews were very mellow and nothing to stress about. Brown just got a new dean and I think the direction he is taking the school is the right one. Unfortunately, not all of his ideas are fully in place yet, so there may be some growing pains as the school transitions. I suppose that's my real concern. I was worried about alot of the students being PLME, but after meeting a few of them, it seems like the student body is pretty diverse and accomplished. Grading is H/P/F, but there is no class rank. This is definitely a school on the way up and a place that I could really see myself being a part of. If you like the freedom of the Yale System and the New England/Ivy atmosphere, I would suggest you check out Brown." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised to hear so much negative stuff from students and the medical school facilities amounted one lecture hall, a shabby lounge and an anatomy lab that we weren't permitted to see. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both interviews went pretty well. My first interviewer kept complimenting my record, which was actually difficult for me. He would say, "well, you've got good grades and a good MCAT," and I had a tough time deciding whether he wanted me to thank him, add to his list of good features about me, or be humble and suggest he was praising me too much. He was a businessman along with an MD, which is a field that interests me as well; I was slightly unaccostomed to the informality of it. The second interview went flawlessly; I was relaxed, warmed up, and able to answer the "interesting question" I've listed here cleverly since I was relaxed. We got along really well too. Normally I thought I would've been in because of it, but the first interview was slightly rocky and there are SO few positions available. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't learn very much as far as new info. Intervieweres were very positive and full of complements. This was not like normal interviews where you get challenged a little. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Laid back conversations. A shuttle had to be taken to the hospital because the med school is on the main Brown campus. Providence is VERY New England (a la The Family Guy)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview went well and the medical student who gave us a tour was very honest." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hospitals are very nice but the medical school is mediocre. As a result, they kiss your butt a lot on the interview. Students selected to make presentations were inarticulate, slow and appeared to lack any energy. Also beware Brown Medical was cited for mistreating students according to their latest accreditation report. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Long, but interesting day. They really want you to take the time to be sure Brown is the right place for you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"people were really nice and enthusiastic about the school. interviews themselves were stress-free, laid back and conversational. the campus itself is literally part of the undergrad campus, which is nice. interviewers really knew my application well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"day begins @ 8:00. standard talk given about admissions, financial aid, etc. student tour of brown's campus (med school on undergrad campus); lengthy tour of RI Hosp and Hasbro Children's Hosp; return to campus for interviews- 2 30 minute interviews--1 w/ MD, 1 w/ admissions officer" More from this Member | Report Response

"very comfortable and complete. a mutual exchange. " More from this Member | Report Response

"very helpful staff. seemed concerned about helping you fund your med school experience. 12 co-interviewees in my group so really liked the more intimate experience. went on tour of school (very short, and the student tour guide was less than impressive). great tour of 2 of the hospitals where students would do rotations and clerkships. very nice children's hospital. lunch at the hospital with a student guide, then went back to main campus for interviews. met with the dean of minority affairs and the assistant director of admissions. one interviewer only asked me one question about myself and the other two questions were about health care. the second interview was much more comfortable and standard because she asked about specific things about my background." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, my interviewing experience at Brown was very positive. The medical school is very small, but the facilities are very nice. People seem pretty happy here." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great setting, Providence is a really nice place to go and colloberate with so many people. Watch out because I hear that if you apply for a neurosci PhD program some professor interviews you and asks you ridiculous questions like what is e^-pi and derive the formular for a harmonic oscillator... etc. etc." More from this Member | Report Response
