Also, I love the fact that I can choose among nine campuses, all of which have different benefits." More from this Member | Report Response

"The new integration of IU's 9 competencies in their program." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were extremely friendly and excited to be at IU. Also, the close proximity of a variety of hospitals provides many clinical opportunities.

"The school is beautiful. They're trying to become one of the top ten med schools by 2010, so they're constantly making improvements." More from this Member | Report Response

"IU SOM in Indianapolis has some very nice facilities, and I didn't know there were so many hospitals right next to the med school campus. The students seemed nice and friendly, but all they talked about was medicine--no outside interests. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed atmosphere but still professional. Everyone was nice and helpful. I thought the 1/2 hour information session on the school and the optional financial aid information sessions were nice. I felt like they were trying to sell the school to us, not that we had to sell ourselves to them. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed this interview. The doctors that interviewed me were both extremely animated and compassionate people. They were both really interested in who I was and what makes me tick as a person. It felt pretty good also to have them tell me they hoped I would come to IU! It was very nice to feel that they were trying to sell me on the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the interviewers. How well maintained the school is and the facilities offered to students. You have a choice of nine different campuses for you first two years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very enthusiastic about the school from the admissions officers to the students to the interviewers. As an in-state student, I thought that I would not be impressed by IU. I was actually feeling mostly apathetic on the drive to the interview. Instead I found myself thinking that I could really see myself as a student. The international and research opportunities for students are outstanding. I also met several other interview candidates that I could really see as my future classmates. " More from this Member | Report Response

"EXCELLENT resources and facilities. It is a large institution with tons of cutting edge medical and scientific programs. I'm not interested in research at all but it's neat to have all of that information and technology available. Campus is really nice, have their own hospital and easy access to others nearby." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are second to none! Plus, Indianapolis has got to be one of the greatest cities around." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview, so I was just stoked that everyone was so friendly and doing so much to welcome me. Also, other applicants seem to be great people. Facilities were fantastic, and though it's in the Midwest, Indy isn't shut off from civilization." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hospitals surrounding the school seemed well-developed and very busy. In addition, the student who ate lunch with us was awesome. He was very positive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like a nice safe city." More from this Member | Report Response

"The relaxed atomsphere, the nice people who interviewed me" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much was being built around the campus. Lots of funding coming in now and over the next couple years. The research is already really good (lots of projects involved with Purdue and their new Biomedical engineering department) and is only going to get better. The people are really nice, too." More from this Member | Report Response

"The people were SOOO NICE!!! The interview was not stressful at all, and I felt like they were really trying to get to know me." More from this Member | Report Response

"the curriculum has a lot to offer in terms of meeting your specific learning style. they have a campus that has lecture from 9-3 or a campus that has lecture from 10-noon, small groups, every sort of style--but it does mean that your class (which is rather large) gets split up" More from this Member | Report Response

"the willingness of the students to be sent to one of 9 regional campuses" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is very nice (compared to my home school) and the student were very helpful. They had things plannedl for all day (a meeting with everybody at lunch, financial aid meeting, group lunches with students (I had ~6interviewees and 2 med students), they provide breakfast and lunch, and campus tours. It was nice to meet the other students being interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed pretty laid-back for med students. I didn't meet even one anal-retentive person. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There is alot of construction which means new and modern facilities are being built. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I enjoyed walking around Riley Hospital because I was amused by the environment of the children's hospital. I have never seen a barney or a curious george that huge. I was also amused by the fact that they are constructing a monorail to connect their hospitals. The only monorail I have ridden is at Disneyland." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were amazing. There are so many associated hospitals near the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the students seemed very happy and not too stressed out." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviewers seemed uninterested in the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer didn't seem like she cared about me. There were no follow-up questions based off what I said; it was not a 'conversation.' It's different from a lot of other med school interviews in that way. It almost seemed that my interviewer was reading off a script" More from this Member | Report Response

"They did not wanted to be there. The interviewers seem like they did not care one bit about my application/experience and just care about the stats" More from this Member | Report Response

"Essentially one building, not a huge amount of resources, and lack of opportunities to mix with other professional students." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer was doodling and seemed uninterested. Had doodles prior to coming into the room. Definitely unprofessional..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't have enough time to get through the full financial aid presentation which was a shame because the guy really knew his stuff and had some excellent content in the slides. Would have loved to hear his full presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Actually, one of the interviewers didn't seem to care to be there. But he wasn't a jerk thankfully!" More from this Member | Report Response

"No parking permits on interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"How spread out the facilities were at this particular regional campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour of the facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer seemed bored, kept checking phone." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm from Indiana, and it truly is a fly-over state. I don't love living among nothing but cornfields and cattle, so of course, the location is not ideal." More from this Member | Report Response

"My entire experience with IUSM was horrible. My interviewers were combative, disrespectful, disinterested in my answers. They had made up their minds from the moment I shook their hands. I have very high stats, and my first question was: "Why did you even apply here?" This was followed by a long list of ridiculous ethical questions including: "Well what would you do as a medical student (question asked angrily by the interviewer) if your very best friend's family; his mother, father, brother, and sister were all killed in a fiery car crash by a drunk driver. And he couldn't deal with it so he went drinking that night and the next day didn't come into rounds because he was hungover. And he texts you asking to cover for him. What would you do?"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very little information provided during the day. No tour of the medical school. Hour long brief about financial aid, but much shorter brief about the school, curriculum, campuses, …" More from this Member | Report Response

"Having to find my interview location by myself at one of the hospitals, unguided." More from this Member | Report Response

"I can't think of anything really..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day seemed "factory-like" because of the number of applicants and the whole day had a stressful feel to it since the interviews were all at the end of the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Indy Traffic: Make sure to plan to get there with plenty of time because I lost 25 minutes in rush hour traffic/missing some turns." More from this Member | Report Response

"You don't get to choose your campus. It is a lottery system." More from this Member | Report Response

"the whole satellite campus thing and how you pick campuses did not appeal to me at all" More from this Member | Report Response

"I hate to criticize, but after a number of other interviews, this one was very unimpressive. Some applicants got lost finding their room, there was a lot of wasted time (downtime), the sheer volume of other applicants made you feel like student number xyz, when asked what they liked most about the school, 3 med students gave very generic answers and I had to push them to get something specific. Not exactly the heartfelt passion I was hoping for. No tour?? Seriously?? A couple of us ended up taking our own tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"No lunch and no tour, schedule did not fit perfectly with itinerary" More from this Member | Report Response

"Presentations were given w/o much gusto or energy. Simply said, "we're good," without being excited about giving us a medical education." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the satellite campuses aren't exactly cities I would like to live in." More from this Member | Report Response

"The price of tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"everyone said they were super friendly, and I guess I was just expecting them to treat me like royalty, b/c i didn't think they were over-the-top friendly. they were not mean, just normal. Although, I'm from indiana, so maybe everyone just behaves that way here?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students were left to their own devices to find their way to their interview rooms. I was lucky as my interview was in the main building, but I heard stories of other students getting lost." More from this Member | Report Response

"the hour long financial aid session that told us how much debt we will accumulate the next 10 years of our lives" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that it is in Indianapolis... Indy is an extremely boring city" More from this Member | Report Response

"the campuses around the state seem disconnected to the main campus in indianapolis. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything else." More from this Member | Report Response

"No Lunch :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were well over 100 applicants there, which was slightly overwhelming, but understandable considering the class size." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was a bit boring..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too many people in one interview session" More from this Member | Report Response

"Probably about 100 students. It was fun to meet lots of new people, but also kind of intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"The med student that interviewed me, he was yawning, came half and hour late to the interview and asked a political question. My interview ended up being longer than an hour which could have been bad. Also there isn't much diversity in the school (reasoning I was given for this is because the State of indiana isn't very diverse which really isn't a good answer). Mostly fast food restaurants and burger places, no ethnic cuisine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Never felt like anyone at the school wanted me to come to IU" More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm out of state so harder to get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"lack of financial aid (i.e. scholarships, grants, stipends)" More from this Member | Report Response

"number of people interviewing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ok a couple things...and not tryin to beat down on the school.. 1) Very lil or no diversity. I'm international, and love meetin pple of all races/color etc., but Indiana is VERY VERY HOMOGENOUS. An indianapolis, and ya the med school itself is idk very homogenous if you catch my drift ie. very white. If thats how you like your coffee, then go for it. But ja that was idk not too cool.. 2) Idk I talked to just a few med students...and unlike the other med school's i've interviewed at, I just didnt feel the vibe and excitement from the med students to be there. I just cldn't feel it at all. Mayb it was cos they were havin exams or something, but it just wasnt there. And ja, just a few of them came to sit n chill n talk w us. Kinda weird, but no real excitement to be there at all... Maybe it was just me tho'.. 3) VERY VERY EXPENSIVE for out of state..just ridiculous. REAL turn off, I was like what the heck!??" More from this Member | Report Response

"Note-taking service isn't available at regional campuses so going to lecture in Indy is optional but mandatory everywhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was the very last of the day on the first full day of interviews. Since IU interviews about 100 students at a time, I'm sure my interviewers were tired. However, that is not an excuse for one of them DOSING OFF during my interview. Basically one of them asked questions while the other was literally falling asleep. That definitely reflected very negatively on the school and their representatives." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour of campus got cut short to 10 min. Two med students with about 60 interviewees. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"That where you interviewed and saw might not be where you end up going since there are 8 sites where med students are sent and you won't know where you're going until after you have accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the city seemed very bland to me, well, rightfully so, I am from a West Coast state and we are very diverse here" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide definitely seemed like she was doing it just because she was given credit for it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The class size... 330 and growing. Also, they have eight (I think) regional locations, which I'm not a fan of, although you would find out your location in ~April (so before you had to make a decision). Also, the interview day was one of the worst I've been on, which is a shame because it is a great state school. I had an immense amount of downtime and also I was not a huge fan of ~100 people interviewing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was horrible-she just read a bit off of a piece of paper and didn't even tell us her name. Also, there was a lot of down time during the day, probably because there were a lot of people being interviewed at different times." More from this Member | Report Response

"During the interview there was a lot of downtime. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The sheer volume of kids that were there was a bit overwhelming, you really feel like a number. The tour could have been a bit more extensive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was somewhat unprofessional and didn't tell us much about the school itself, just lifestyle things." More from this Member | Report Response

"Based on the other interviewees I met and my interviewer's reaction to my file, I am guessing I am pretty non-traditional for Indiana. Most people who attend IU have lived in-state their whole lives. I fear the class would not be very diverse not just in terms of race, but also in terms of world view, life experiences, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"campus was a bit difficult to navigate" More from this Member | Report Response

"The heat in the interviewer's office was on full blast and couldn't be turned off. We were both uncomfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was 20 minutes late." More from this Member | Report Response

"The satellite schools are mostly in the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student tour guide was not very prepared to show the group around the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of down time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Most of the questions were asked by the same interviewer; the other one typed everything we said. And I had a wee bit of trouble finding the room I was interviewing in." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is no student housing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lunch was a bit cramped in some small rooms. Yes, it was intimate, but with a dozen nervous people wearing suits in a small cramped room on a hot day... well.. youget the idea..." More from this Member | Report Response

"For out-of-staters, the school is very expsensive! Otherwise, nothing much- I just felt that I could have used greater interaction with some actual docs there." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a lot of other applicants there, and my interview was in the afternoon. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Cold weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"the number of students interviewing that day...around 200!" More from this Member | Report Response

" A few of the other interviewees, actually. I know we're all technically competing, but some should show a little humility and be open to stimulating conversation. I don't really like the prospect of going to one of the satellite campuses...this is probably what will be the ''turn-off'' (if any) for most applicants. Minor complaint: my interview was scheduled at a time that interrupted a talk by the Med School big cheese (this happened to a few of us who were scheduled in the afternoon). Would have liked to stay for that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too much down time. Too many interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a lot of interviews given that day, so you feel like a drop in the bucket. But the groups were split up so it wasnt really that big of a deal. " More from this Member | Report Response

" Where do I start? There were 100 students interviewing that day (99 to be exact), and so the students didn't click like on my other interviews. The person interviewing me didn't smile, and read questions off the page. It was as if he had made up his mind about me and just had to do the interview for the sake of it. It totally turned me off. I wanted to withdraw my application right there. I probably will because I will not go there even if accepted (already have 2 acceptances in hand from schools that I actually like, don't even know why I went to IU). I truly disliked the experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was supposed to start at 2.45p and started at 3.05p, so I think my interviewer might've been rushing... and I ended up missing the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"it didnt seem like that EXCITING a place, but ive lived here my whole life so maybe thats why." More from this Member | Report Response

"too much down time, financial aid session was boring and too long" More from this Member | Report Response

"The immaturity level of the students at the lunch was astounding. They directed us to go around the room identifying our favorite body part; one med student said ''inner thigh''. Highly inappropriate. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers made a derogatory comment about the importance of my undergraduate research." More from this Member | Report Response

"My second interviewer didn't show up. My interviewer answered a phone call during my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"the amount of people there- probably 75 or more" More from this Member | Report Response

"The endless cornfields I passed on the drive there. (seemed like kind of a boring place)" More from this Member | Report Response

"they ran out of veggie lunches (apparently for the first time in history) - they should have made sure that vegetarians got first pick or had some way for us to notify them beforehand of our dietary restriction or let us know that this might happen and to bring food - also, the city is tiny and seemed totally deserted even during their so-called ''morning rush hour'' - it was pretty depressing - also, the lack of diversity but that was expected given that indiana is not exactly a diverse state" More from this Member | Report Response

"For being such a large campus the students don't do a lot of research currently. The thought of satelite campuses has it pros and cons. The cons are that you are more or less sent to a random campus around the state for your first two years. Although you fill out a preference, only half the campus gets to stay in Indy. They creates a disconnect between the satelite students and those at the main campus in Indy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"how uninterested one of the people giving the interview was" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer seemed uninterested (just asked questions straight off the list), then got antagonistic about several parts of my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"How small of a chance I have of getting in from out of state." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too many people interviewing, 60+ The campus is a bit cramped" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that you can be thrown into any one of the regional campuses for the first 2 years...some are in the middle of nowhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a ton of applicants, probably 100 of us there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything on the tour day was very unorganized. The interviewer was 45 min late, I was late for lunch and no one was directing us. When two other applicants and I finally found out where to eat lunch only vegetarian lunches were left and we had not place to sit so we just found an empty room. Also, no guides were around to assist in finding interview locations. My interview ended up being in the Children's hospital (far from the original meeting spot) in a psychiatrist's office. Overall it was a bad day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"some students seemed too happy that they weren't at one of the regional centers..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much...but it was a large group of interviewees (around 50)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The course load sounded intense the first semester since they front weight the curriculum for the year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The building that the anatomy lab was in was kind of old and not very nice looking. It was certainly functional, though, and appearances aren't the most important thing. I'm also not sure how I feel about the 9 different campuses throughout the state." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview group was very large (around 50 people), but they managed to organize us well. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Half of the entering class is sent to small auxilliary campuses." More from this Member | Report Response

"$64,000 out of state is high. It has a great program and if accepted I'll go, but that's a big price tag. No guarantee about what satellite you end up at." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students seemed like they were just trying to sell med school instead of selling IU. They kept telling us how they never have to go to class, which I guess was supposed to impress us." More from this Member | Report Response

"out of state tuition and the fact that they are looking at 11-20% tuition increases and that may not be just for one year...:( Also, the whole day seemed like very on your own for going to your interview and the various sessions. There were a lot of people interviewing at once though." More from this Member | Report Response

"It seems like lecture halls might be limited because you stay in one classroom all day and the professors come to you." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm from Los Angeles, so the culture shock of living in Indianapolis would take some adjustment. I stayed an extra night so I could explore the city, but it was pretty deserted once it got dark.

"Not much. I wish we could have seen the anatomy labs on our tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"I REALLY don't like the satellite campus. Being from California, Indiana is already a culture shock. Don't really want to be stuck in a tiny-tiny town." More from this Member | Report Response

Also, there were SO many interviewees so everyone was just looking at each other as we waited, and it was kinda weird." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone said how "laid-back" their interviews were, but mine was not laid-back at all. I felt like it was more of an interrogation than a "conversation" like some said." More from this Member | Report Response

"The nine different campuses throughout the state." More from this Member | Report Response

"As everybody says, the tour. Also, one of my interviewers was quite aggressive while the other one was very nice, overall the only negative impression was the number of people who interviewed on the same day! that was scary!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the tuition for out-of-state student and that out of state students are not granted grants or scholarships by the institution. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There were at least 100 people interviewing the same day. Also, I felt somewhat out of place since there was an overabundance of minorities interviewing (probably 85% minorities). I don't really know why." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer didn't show any interest in even having to interview me. He was very confrontational and rude. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the tour was pretty worthless" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Out-of-state people don't get residency ever, also the fact that you don't get to find out which campus you are going to be at until after you accept. Also there is no on-campus housing and parking seems hard to find." More from this Member | Report Response

"On interview day, there were many applicants (50+), so the day was not as personal as at other schools. The student that I ate lunch with admitted that she was accepted at IU after being denied the previous 2 years, and the student giving the tour said she does not attend class often. These didn't seem like great representatives." More from this Member | Report Response

"The "tour" wasn't so much a tour as it was a student standing in one place and pointing at things that were too far away to see." More from this Member | Report Response

"the guy never asked about my research. this would normally be OK, but I have more than the typical person. he never even brought up my publication record as well (I made sure to, though)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything else! Lousy tour that amounted to "here is a lecture room.... the library.... student union" (wow! photo op!). Also, the information session was nothing more than a summary of the website. At the end of the day, I knew exactly what I knew going in (and I still have [at best] a vague notion of IU)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The very generic form of interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"IU will admit 280 students this year. Although the faculty and staff seemed very friendly and interested, it may be difficult to distinguish yourself from 280 other students. Additionally, not all students will attend IU at the Indianapolis campus for the first year (this may not appeal to some students). I was told by other students to absolutely avoid the Gary, Indiana campus (lots of violence, gunshots, etc.). I was especially turned off by the exorbitant cost of tuition for non-residents (average cost of attending IU for 4 years, including tuition/books/supplies and cost of living, as a non-resident: $273,000). Ouch." More from this Member | Report Response

"size of the class, and the possibility for it to be impersonal. " More from this Member | Report Response

"class size 280-makes sense considering its the only med school in indiana. Half student go to satellite campuses during first two years" More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude toward non-indy residents. The students we had lunch with basically told us that it's not worth it unless you're from indy. Not very encouraging right before my interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were so many people there to interview. Makes you feel like a number." More from this Member | Report Response

"The M.D. admissions staff were a little late getting started, and I had a Ph.D. interview at 8:30 am, so I was really pressed for time to get registered. The combined degree staff were very organized and helpful" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour wasn't very organized. It was pretty much just someone pointing to the different buildings. Also, there were TONS of people interviewing on the same day.. it was a little overwhelming." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were tons of people interviewing on the same day as me. Plus, parking was insane! I got there 30 minutes early and it took me most of that time to find parking in the lot they said to park in. We did not see any of the hospitals on the tour, which I would have liked. Luckily, my interview was in one of the hospitals so I got to see a little. ALso, I do not like the fact that I could be placed in Podunk, IN for my first two years. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of down time in between informative sessions (financial aid, etc.), lots of sitting around in the "hospitality room"" More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely no interest on the part of students or faculty in anything other than medicine. No medical humanities, few international rotation opportunities. The class size is huge if you get assigned to Indy, but you could end up in Gary or Terre Haute with 16 other people in your class for the first two years. Also, although there are many married students and even a significant number with children, there is no childcare facility in any of the hospitals that med students can use." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers (there were supposed to be 2) wasn't there and no explaination was given. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not very many students to talk to and the ones I talked to seemed indifferent about the school...." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole day seemed a bit unorganized. Plus having 30+ people interviwing the same day is a bit unnerving." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that the interview was so impersonal. My interviewer basically filled out required forms during the interview while I just answered questions so he could fill out the form. Most of the information was already on my AMCAS application. I also didn't like how many students get interviewed on the same day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"So many applicants (about 40-50) there to interview. The scheduling." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not sense an open atmosphere from the current students or faculty. My interview was at 9:00am so I had a lot of down time during the day. Also my second interviewer did not show up because he wanted to interview a MD/Ph.D perspective student" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, but I am an out-of-state applicant, so I am not getting my hopes up." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students who led the campus tour seemed to have been thrown in the middle of it without an advance notice." More from this Member | Report Response

"disconnect among 1,2-3,4 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The attitude of some of the students that lead the discussion groups over lunch were not the greatest." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location, Indianpolis is my home town and I'm not that excited about living in Indy for the next four years of my life..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The uncertaintly of the extension campus system. I also would have liked a more thorough tour, especially of the teaching/clinical facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really-" More from this Member | Report Response

"The parking garage I parked in (eventually) was apparently not on the campus map. I wandered around til I was about to pass out before finally arriving (late) for my interview. UGH!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was dysfunctional at best" More from this Member | Report Response

"Hard to find a parking spot." More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't like the fact that you can be assigned to one of the eight regional campuses. If I go there, I only want to be in Indianapolis." More from this Member | Report Response

"The organization of the day was not impressive. The tour was a fifteen minute walk outside basically to get us to a location for a presentation. The lunch was not well organized to ensure there were enough medical students to speak with the interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"There must have been 60 applicants there that day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That you can end up at any of 9 campuses for your first two years, and some are in the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Fairly large campus with very small choice of campus housing." More from this Member | Report Response

"not much" More from this Member | Report Response

"Although Indianapolis is nice, I am uncertain as to if I would like to live there for four years seeing as how I have become accustom to the mountains." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student panel/lunch seemed to be unorganized. I got the impression that rooms had not been reserved and students available to serve on the panel were kind of last minute additions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Large and impersonal. It is a typical large university setting where you have to cut your own path without a lot of personal attention from your instructors. I have no problem with this environment but it is certainly not for everyone. You are but one of thousands of squirrels trying to find their nut. Don't go if you can't handle that. Tour sucked!!! Given by a med student and lasted a grand total of 10 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"The monorail catches on fire." More from this Member | Report Response

"parking, and i didn't get to hear all of the "welcome" presentation because i had to leave for my interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that I was interviewing with 100+ other applicants that day. Although the Med School staff is super nice to the applicants, by cramming so many interviews into one day, I really felt that I wasn't given as much personal attention as at other places or a chance to see what the school was REALLY all about." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just the fact that not everyone gets a cool campus to go for their clinical years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the school, probability of getting placed in places like Gary, uniformity in the student population, location of the school, age of some of the buildings at which lectures are held, and the waiting time during the interview day. I also feel that my interviewer did not take the time to read my file before my interview. Maybe he did, but he did not make any references to my personal statement and he asked me questions that were directly answered in my file. He was also late." More from this Member | Report Response

"Medical Student tour was rushed and felt thrown together, I interview right "after" lunch which ment 10 min to eat, then run to the correct room. Some students complained about first 2 years, some campuses tougher than others, would like to see standardized exams across all campus locations." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is divided into 9 campuses. There were a ton of us interviewing that day, and I'm out of state." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities are old, building is old, PBL isn't my thing" More from this Member | Report Response

"I grew up in Indiana but lived the past five years in Boston, so Indianapolis impressed me the least. Its getting better, but I'd rather be in a more cosmopolitan area. Plus, the winter is cold in Indy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The negative attitude toward non-resident applicants" More from this Member | Report Response

"The idea of being placed at a "satellite" campus. Also my interviewer seemed so focused on my being an out-of-state applicant." More from this Member | Report Response

"#1 The large nunber of people being interviewed (about 100). #2 The current med students. They acted as if we were total idiots with no self confidance, quite insulting. #3 The large class size (280). About 750 med students on campus. #4 Expense for out of state applicants $3500+ for all four years #5 How easily Hoosiers are impressed by a mono-rail (reminds me of the Simpsons episode) " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"the tour; they didn't really show us anything, we mostly just walked outside and they pointed to buildings" More from this Member | Report Response

"There's a lot of construction going on and the students said that it disrupts their classes and tests" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lunch with the med students" More from this Member | Report Response

"students seemed kinda like slackers, indy is not the greatest city in the country" More from this Member | Report Response

"The regional campus setup is unappetizing to say the least. Having grown up in Indiana, I know where I would like to study and where I would not. I don't need to be placed in a remote location in Indiana for two years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The 3rd and 4th year students constant references to how hellish the first two years were" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer looked at my file for about 30 sec. before he called me in for the interview. He basically knew nothing about me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that you might have to go to one of their campuses other than the one at Indy. Your given choices, but if you get stuck in one, you can't really appeal the decision." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day overall was somewwhat unorganized (not the interview itself though) and the tour was not very interesting or informative." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of diversity definitely concerned me. I also got a few ignorant questions from some of my fellow interviewees. I hope this was in no way a reflection of the mentality of the area. In addition, I was not to thrilled about the manner in which they accomodate such a huge entering class. I do not want to be place on one of their campuses in boonsville. Apparently, they have several campuses and you don't neccesarily get to choose to remain in Indianpolis." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing in particular gave me a poor impression of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"construction! some of the facilities for M1 were run down." More from this Member | Report Response

"that students have the 'option' of spending the first two years in 9 different campuses...gary, terre haute, muncie, evansville, fort wayne, west laffayette, bloomington, south bend, and indianapolis...if you don't get indianapolis or bloomington, you may get stuck in gary...also, i was not impressed by the lack of diversity among the current students and interviewees...but such is indiana..." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Interview questions were scripted and the location on google and apple maps was incorrect. I ended up in a empty field at first. The actual building was a quarter of a mile away." More from this Member | Report Response

"None. It was chill" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't going to be asked any of the traditional "Why medicine?" "Why IU?", etc. questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was going to be more of a conversational interview than an interrogation." More from this Member | Report Response

"More about the school itself. As an OOS it was difficult to learn a background of the school and regional campuses through the online website." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, it was very laid-back." More from this Member | Report Response

"How much of an asshole my interviewers would be. Focused completely on one minor alcohol-related incident that occurred during my undergraduate career. My interviewers were bullies. Took advantage of the power difference in the interviewer-interviewee relationship." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there wouldn't be a tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's ok to bring a big purse. :) I brought a little one that was just big enough to fit my mini travel umbrella (just in case it rained) and I also brought a padfolio. But honestly, no one really cares what you bring, as long as you look professional. So don't bring a backpack or something, but make sure you have a nice looking folder to hold the papers they give you and paper if you want to take any notes." More from this Member | Report Response

"To bring a folder to keep my papers protected from the rain (and maybe an umbrella too!) Check the forecast beforehand!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview really isn't that stressful, and it seems that they really just want to see if you have good conversational skills." More from this Member | Report Response

"To study the competencies" More from this Member | Report Response

"The limo service that transports you from the airport to the school is less than half the price of a cab." More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interviewers weren't interested in making my interview a stressful experience, but just wanted to get to know me as a person." More from this Member | Report Response

"Where close food places were for after the interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"They provided some snacks at the beginning but I was too nervous to eat, so basically I didn't eat between breakfast and 5pm. I wish I had eaten or packed a snack." More from this Member | Report Response

"This had a much more laid back feeling than I was expecting. I definitely over prepared, especially being able to spout out the 9 competencies and their definitions at all 3 levels-not necessary." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the check in spot was not exactly were they told me it would be in the email." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ask the interviewers about the 9 competencies before they can ask you. I did this, and so, escaped a 9 comp. question. But I did prepare to discuss them in depth if they wanted to." More from this Member | Report Response

"That my interviewer hadn't read my file before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"they provided breakfast food!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything went good. I think I was prepared. " More from this Member | Report Response

"fin aid session was practically worthless" More from this Member | Report Response

"Get there early because you are on your own to find your interview location. Mine was a good 10 to 15 minute walk away, through two other buildings and upstairs. Luckily, I was early to check-in or I would have been late to my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nada..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had narrowed my list of extra curriculars down to 3-5 to talk about." More from this Member | Report Response

"The competencies (look at their website)" More from this Member | Report Response

"was ready for everything they had" More from this Member | Report Response

"The the interviews would be running so late. I appreicate that they took their time talking to individuals, but got out of my interview 2 hours later than expected. If I were flying, I would probably have missed my flight." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would miss the info session and the financial aid session and be asked thoroughly about my high school experiences as opposed to anything else I ever did." More from this Member | Report Response

"Be prepared to play the waiting game after your interview. I interviewed in October and did not hear back until mid-April. Also, follow-up thoroughly (I cannot stress this enough) after submitting any information. The admissions office mistakenly input my committee letter as a single faculty letter, which was not caught until I called to verify its receipt. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I forgot the homework that I was going to bring along because I had some time I was just sitting around." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would not get asked at all about the core competencies, I spent a great deal of time memorizing and formulating answers for any questions they might have had about them." More from this Member | Report Response

"how cold it is in Indy in November" More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A i think i did too much research" More from this Member | Report Response

"That medical students also participated in the interview process" More from this Member | Report Response

"learned everything on this site before hand so nothing really surprised me" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of downtime if you didnt have the sweeeeeeeeeeeet schedule that I did. You cld interview at any time of the day, from 9am, or even at 3pm...so be prepared. I had a sweet day, and had stuff back to back till 2pm, was done then. But many were not soo lucky. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Since I've done this once before, I knew to expect a lot of downtime. I asked the greeters if I could go on my tour and financial aid sessions at different times than I was scheduled so I wouldn't have to miss things for my interview and could leave earlier." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I was advised to know the meaning of professionalism and the core competencies beforehand." More from this Member | Report Response

"That no one else was bringing any guests/parents to see tour the school. Also there was a very high number of interviewers interviewing on the same day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How expensive it is out of state." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I would be sooooo bored... seriously, bring something to read or study." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of downtime-I'm glad I had a campus map, because I just walked around myself to make up for the awful tour. They don't seem to expect you to just go back to the check-in place and sit between things, which a lot of people did. I was at least able to do something in between." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a lot of construction on campus and on surrounding highways making driving to Indianapolis and to the campus a little confusing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That although they offer an MD/MPH, most people do not complete the MPH while they are in med school (according to my interviewer). They are likely to wait until they begin residency." More from this Member | Report Response

"there are nine campuses and they are all very different " More from this Member | Report Response

"There were 100 people interviewing that day and we had some unstructured time where we just sat around. I wish IU had narrowed it down a bit more ahead of time." More from this Member | Report Response

" With all the walking I did downtown the night before, I wish I had brought my AND-1s... Many interested applicants may be disappointed to find out that the tour does not go through Riley, but merely showcases the lobby and McDonald's. I'd suggest you get the hookup there and get a tour the day before/after your interview as I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews there were very comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, I was pretty well versed about everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known how much construction there was going to be on campus! It was kind of difficult to find parking. They're doing a lot of building right now (which is good), but it makes the IUPUI campus kind of a madhouse. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have known that the comments on studentdoctor.net about the interview being low-key were actually true. It was very relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hotel situation. I got ripped off at a piece-of-junk Marriot hotel. It was "close" to the school but not walkable. Might as well borrowed a car and drove there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The financial aid meeting is pretty much worthless. I already knew all the information that was presented." More from this Member | Report Response

"How close all the hospitals were to one another. I guess not that important at this point, just something that I didn't know before." More from this Member | Report Response

Nothing was too surprising. I would suggest leaving your info packet in the lobby when you go on the tour.

"If interview days are like hotels, this would be a Red Roof Inn while most other interview days are more like a Holiday Inn or a Hilton. They herd you through with minimal guidance, get you a money brief and an interview and send you on your way. No lunch, no sim center tour, no obligatory walk through the anatomy lab or student lounge or library. My overall impression was that the education you get here is probably decent, but it's just too big to be personal and friendly.

The interviewer was more interested in seeing how I dealt with his constant barrage of ethical questions. Every answer I had for a question was quickly followed by a, "Well... what if..." comment in which the question was changed so I needed to respond again.

"The committee question really threw me through a loop, and I had a bad mark against me as far as behavioral from my sophomore year. They spent between 5 and 10 minutes of a 30 minute interview on that, which kind of shook me as well. Many kids said that their interview was a conversation, mine wasn't.

" Being an out-of-stater...and a white guy...facing IU's preferential policy toward Indy residents, I was told to expect to be grilled a little harder. And grilled I was. In the end, I took it as ''they musta liked me.'' Other non-Indy residents MIGHT expect a similar experience of tough questioning. For me, ethical scenarios and one of my interviewers playing devil's advocate for most of what I said made for a...stimulating...interview. I was even asked about a topic a second time, likely to see if they could get me to change my answer. Just being honest, sticking to my beliefs, and having an appropriate sense of humor kept it cool for me, and I gathered at least one of my interviewers appreciated that. Overall, it was painless, though a bit tough. I'm a tid bit jealous that others on SDN had such an easy interview. In the end, I got in everything I wanted to convey through them to the Committee.

Both of the interviewers were nice overall, but there was a rude comment about my research and I got a negative vibe from them about a couple of mission trips that I'd been on.

"Interview day can be intimidating because they interview a lot of students. It seems like they do interview days every two weeks and each interview day has 50-100 students it seems. As an out-of-state it was intimidating. However, most of the interviewees are Indiana residents, because the state guarantees interviews to all Indiana residents who have mediocre MCAT scores and GPAs. So if you are an out-of-state student, don't stress too much because you are obviously qualified if you have made it this far. They day is staggered with everyone on different rotating schedules. Some will have interviews in the morning. Some will have their interviews in the afternoon. There may be some down time between meetings and interviews. However it goes by pretty quickly. Usually you just chat with the other applicants around you. I had my interview with one of the retired faculty members. It was super laid. Most students that I talked to had the same experience. For the most part they just ask about your past experiences and extracurricular activities. They will occasionally slip in one or two ethical questions dealing with cheating or working with a drunken surgeon. Just go over your personal statement and AMCAS application and you will be set. If you can go over the competencies, then do it. (After talking to 3rd year medical student, the competencies are really just a joke on campus. They try to integrate it into the curriculum, but it not as important as the school makes its up to be.) " More from this Member | Report Response

" The facilities were very nice and the students I spoke with were welcoming as well.....However during the interview one of the interviewers seemed to be not listening to me and doodling on her paper. For those out of state applicants..word of advice, be careful about accepting an interview and wasting money on the trip. They basically told me I had no chance because of my mcat score was lower than they usually took....which is fine. However, they shouldn't have even wasted my time by having me fly all the way out there if they were just going to tell me that. I guess I was just another out of state minority applicant they can chalk up that they interviewed for the benefit of the institution. They preach about the nine competencies, one of them being Professionalism, maybe they need to think about what they are teaching, being that they are NOT very professional themselves."

"The interview started out OK, but my interviewer wasn't very friendly (never really smiled or joked at all). He asked questions straight off the page, then got sort of confrontational about several parts of my application (and also blankly stared at me during my responses). He asked me why I indicated myself as disadvantaged (and didn't seem to agree with me). Overall, he just seemed unenthusiastic about me as an applicant and I didn't get the impression that he would represent me well to the admissions committee. I am going to call the admissions office and request another interview." More from this Member | Report Response

We just had a casual conversation with some "standard" questions thrown in. I'd definitely be happy attending IU. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was one of the more intense ones but probably because it was a 4th year medical student. He was nice but he wrote a lot, which was a bit distracting.

The questions themselves weren't hard, except that I didn't know exact numbers for high school information (class rank, class size, SAT score). Why high school stuff matters anyway, I have no idea. All of the questions are exactly the same as those listed on SDN (they've been the same questions for like three years)." More from this Member | Report Response

While appropriate it looked afwul and was a bad choice for any occasion." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interviewed by Dr. Duoung (sp). He is a very nice anatomist. I was an in-state applicant and was invited for an interview despite my low MCAT. I was told flat out that it would probably be detrimental to my acceptance. I was told this in a very tactful and nice way. He said he would still present and argue my case with the admissions committee. I appreciated the honesty and the professionalism offered to me. Everything else on my application seemed A OK. In a way, it makes me wonder why they invite candidates who are in-state with low MCATs for interviews if they really don't stand a chance in being accepted based upon the MCAT alone--unless it some agreement b/w the state for funding. Either way, may the best man or woman win and if it comes down to the MCAT, guess I'm out. :) I would still have to be fair and honest to say, that IU is a great school and the admission staff is very nice and welcoming."

I have a complicated background because I withdrew from a school due to an illness, took several years off and worked in another profession, then transferred to another school. My interviewer seemed VERY interested in understanding every aspect of my chronology, so she could place all of my accomplishments into context. I felt relaxed with her, and I was able to let my personality show. We even laughed at times during the interview. We ended up speaking for over 90 minutes, with her taking EXTENSIVE notes, and when I left I felt that she had really invested in getting to know me as a candidate. I was impressed by this. I am glad this was my first interview, because it was very low stress and some of her questions highlighted areas where I need to make stronger arguments in future interviews."

"There was a large group. They tell you a lot about the university but nothing about the satellite campus. Since half of the students end up in the satellite campuses, this is a very LARGE issue." More from this Member | Report Response

Just be ready for the questions that everyone's listed on this website. None of the questions I was asked was a surprised since I had seen them here on this site." More from this Member | Report Response

"As I mentioned above, my two interviewers took a great deal of time to ask things such as how much I was working while I was going to school. They spent much more time on what I was doing with my life now and were able to sit back and listen while I talked about what led me to this point." More from this Member | Report Response

I did not feel too stressed and the interview was a lot more relaxed than I had thought it would be. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The two people who interviewed me were very nice, but at times it was difficult to know what the one guy was really asking me. Some of the questions were confusing. And sometimes it was like he was telling me things, instead of asking me what I thought...kind of weird." More from this Member | Report Response

"AWESOME!TO ALL IU PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS REED FEEDBACK ON THIS SITE, IT WAS A BIG HELP TO ME." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was very predictable since almost all the questions asked I had read on SDN. The tour was pointless because there were like 40 people going at the same time and it was impossible to hear, or see (since I'm short). I wish I hadn't applied so late, because my interviewer told me if I had applied earlier, I would have gotten in no problem. She said I will most likely be on the waiting list. :( I already figured that would be the case though." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was fairly relaxed, the questions were mostly about things I had put on my application. I was prepared because several of the questions I had read on this website and knew how I would answer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Terrible. I heard other people had great, relaxed interviews. Mine was stressful and extremely unwelcoming. He asked me things about high school and I've been out of high school for almost 10 years now. He didn't seem to care about any answers to his questions and waved me off to let me know my interview was done. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid-back. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back and potentially fun if you meet the right interviewers and students. As long as you know yourself and can answer most of the questions on this site, the interview process will be simple (the 45 mins flew by)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts of with you arriving at the campus and seeing another 40 or so interviewees. There are times when you can take tours and go to financial meetings. The interview is very generic, in that many questions are asked to every applicant. I would advise that if you have a later interview time, try and ask others what questions they were asked and prepare answers to those questions because you will most likely hear the same questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"You show up relatively early in the morning for interviews. There were over 50 students interviewing the day that I did. We had interviews scheduled all day long (mine were early in the morning, other students' weren't until 3 or so in the afternoon). There were several financial aid and admissions presentations scheduled throughout the day to ensure that students were able to attend at least one, no matter when their actual interviews were. A box lunch and tour was provided by some of the medical students. The students and especially the interviewers are very welcoming and kind. The interviewers appeared genuinely interested in learning more about me as a person, and they listened attentively to what I said. The day lasted from about 9 am to 3 pm for me, longer for some students with later interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"IU is a good school, but it's really big, which gives it the possibility to be impersonal. the 8 other centers around the state where they do years 1 & 2 are pretty diverse in their make-up, character, and method. some are all lecture, some all PBL. the competency-based curriculum is a big deal to them; pretty innovative and big-picture, but maybe hard to explicitly implement. the class is big enough that the students don't all know each other, especially since they are split up the first two years. but they are well trained and get lots of patient contact. faculty seems accessible, but it requires student initiative. the invterview day is pretty flexible because they have the financial aid session and tours at multiple times. the financial aid session seems a bit overwhelming with the amount of info they give, but it's really helpful. and the student body is pretty diverse." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview itself went well, laid back. The presentation was fine. The tour-guide was too shy. Too many other interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was really good. The whole atmosphere was relaxed and the interviewer actually just wanted to get to know me. Anybody interviewing here should not sweat it at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laid-back and conversational. My two interviewers were extremely nice and just wanted to get to know me as a person, asking about my travels, extracurriculars, etc. It was more like a conversation than an interview, even though they seemed to be filling out a form at times. I also was not asked anything about my high school experiences, GPA, and SAT, which I had expected from this website (which I think is good- who cares what you got on the SAT??)." More from this Member | Report Response

"IU was my safety school coming into the interview, and it's still my safety school now. I'm in state so it's my cheapest option, but if I get any other acceptances I probably won't be going to IU." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all it was a great interview experience....my first interview and I could not have asked for a better begining of the interview season. I did not have time to go around Indianapolis but did look at the facilities and hospital. Their revised curriculm is great. The interview was pretty laid back and was mostly conversational. We were laughing and the whole situation was pretty light... get-to-know-you kind of stuff.....One interviewer was more interested in how I came to the decision of going into medicine and the other one asked mostly ethical questions and hobbies. We talked about a lot of topics from hobbies to sports i play to what schools I have been to (have been to a lot of schools)...." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all, I felt that the interview was not one that can be easily judged. The interviewers seemed either indifferent or impressed. I could not really tell. The whole process just seemed to take palce for the sake of taking place. " More from this Member | Report Response

"IU is still my number one choice because it is my state state (the cost factor), but the hugeness of the school makes it a little bit of an impersonal way to get a medical education." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was truly a disaster from beginning to end. Luckily, I was able to interview in spite of the fact that I arrived about 15-20 minutes late. But, I did wait until everyone else had finished first. I went in already off my game and exhausted. The "panel" of interviewers I was scheduled to interview with was ONE person--the other had decided to interview the MD/PhD students. The secretary at the front desk seemed more interested in me than the interviewer. I don't expect to be accepted and I really don't care. I had a fairly high opinion of IU until I went there. The interview itself was such a negative experience, I didn't even bother to stay for the rest of the day. I really felt a lot of negativity related to my age, but maybe it was just because I was already p***d off by the whole experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great experience- very relaxing. I felt like I was able to show them who I was and what sets me apart. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive experience. I took a year off after graduating, and considered IUSM one of my backup schools. I physicians interviewing me were very nice despite the fact that I nearly missed the interview. They seemed interested in what I was doing during my year off and were very encouraging. The interview was very informal. The student ambassadors were genuinely excited about attending IU and said the staff was very supportive. One MS1 was allowed to take his finals a week late so he could fly to California for American Idol auditions. He said all his professors were very laid back about making up the tests. The financial aid officer was very informative and actually walked me to another building on campus to make sure I didn't get lost. IUSM is now near the top of my list." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't go through the whole "interview day" since I am an IU student (although I go to school in Bloomington), so I just came up for the actual interview. Coming into it, I wasn't too excited... this is my state school, and I know that all it takes is a 22 on the MCAT and in-state status to qualify for an interview. But the guys who interviewed me were fantastic! I just found out a couple of days ago that I got into IU, and I've accepted my spot (to hold the place), but I am not sure if I will go. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm was an out-of-state applicant and thought I had no chance of getting accepted based on their past statistics, but I decided to go to the interview and just be myself. It turned out to be more of a friendly conversation than an interview, and I really had a good time. I also initiated a follow-up meeting with the admissions office a month later. I got in."

On my first interview only one of the interviewers showed up and the one that did was only interested in filling out a form and not understanding who I was. The second time was much more eventful." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really love the school. I have a couple of beefs that I noted above but it is really a great school. There were a ton of non-residents applying, but in-staters have the edge for sure. I enjoy the hustle and bustle of the large campus and really hope I get in. Beware, it's tough to get in. I heard multiple med students tell me that it took them 2 or 3 tries to get in."

"Staff and interviewer were very nice and accomodating. However, I couldn't help but feeling a little bit like "just another applicant" with so many others there and only one half-hour interview to make myself known to one person." More from this Member | Report Response

"One interview conducted by a doctor (OB/GYN) and an admissions committee lackey. Great experience, friendly people all over the place that really believe in their mission to serve others: their campus reflect this. Too bad I didn't get in." More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't know if I would attend this school. The faculty seem a bit out of touch with the students, probably because there are so many students. For being the only medical school in the state of Indiana, they should be both better ranked and better in quality of education, since all of the state's medical education funds are allocated to one institution, i.e., IUSM."

"Overall good. The interviewer wanted me to ask more questions than he did." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good day. Administration was friendly and profs were more than willing to talk to me. I have a feeling this school is going to really step it up in the next couple years (so much funding and good people flocking to IU/Purdue. Cancer research is already one of the best and I see it being undoubtedly the best in the next decade.) " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very laid back interview experience. There were medical students with us most of the time during the day which helped ease nerves and allowed us to ask questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all it was a great experience. I was able to speak to quite a few students and found out that they all seemed to be happy here." More from this Member | Report Response

"Disappointing school! If you want to be a number, this is your school. Being an out-of-stater(thank god)the school would be very expensive and the surroundings would be depressing (no matter what campus). Certainly my last choice. However, knowing my luck it will be the only school that accepts me. See you soon, I'll be the poor depressed person up in the corner whispering "only four more years" to myself.

"the interviewers were really nice. they made you feel comfortable, not an interagation, just a get to know you kinda chat. i think this is dependent on who interviews you and how competitive an applicant you are though." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt that IU has done well with their interviewing system. The date was a mass-interview day with about 100 people, although interviews were conducted individually with two interviewers at once. The day was well structured and I didn't spend much time waiting around for the next event. My only complaint with my experience was that the campus tour (guided by students) was half-assed. We saw the lecture rooms and walked around the outside of the campus. However, we didn't see the hospitals (the hospital system is quite large), labs, etc. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Indiana just left a bland taste in my mouth. While I liked the city (smaller, seemingly quiet, but very attractive, well layed out, and easy to get around) the school itself left some things to be desired. First, the interview class the day I was there was about 150 people, including nearly 10 people from my undergraduate institution alone. Indiana takes a different philosophy to the interviews, and I think they try to interview as many as possible. That said, the interview itself was uninspiring. It was a 2-on-1 format with a clinician and a PhD, and the PhD did 90% of the talking. I felt pressured in some instances to find a way to involve the clinician in the interview -- basically I directed a few questions his way, and I actually enjoyed my interactions with him more -- it was too bad most of the talking seemed to be from the other direction. The interview was not stressful and quite easy, but didn't really leave me with much of an impression that these people are sold on their school's medical education. The students were very nice, outgoing, but CONSTANTLY complained about the regional medical education system - they are randomly assigned (allowed to state preferece) to one of 9 campuses in IN for their first two years -- much was raised regarding different difficulty and DIFFERENT GRADING SYSTEMS! in place at different campuses. The students also complained about the difficulty of the first two years, something which I had not encountered before or since at any of the other schools I have visited. Overall, it was a fine experience but didn't leave me with a feeling that it was a place I would realy want to be. The out-of-state tuition (around $53k) was another huge turn-off."

"If you are from out of town, please do not stay at the University Place Hotel. It is the Doubletree hotel, which really really sucked. The admissions office reccomended it because it is near the interview site, but I could have easily stayed at another downtown hotel and paid five bucks for a cab to get to the interview site. My linens were soiled with menstrual stains and they tried to make up for it with a free complimentry breakfast. Give me a break! I went back after my interview and bitched about it and they refunded my money, which was what they should have done in the first place. Anywho......besides that ruining my stay in Indiana, the overall interview went well and I enjoyed the friendliness of some of the people I met throughout the day. There is massive consrtuction going on everywhere, which is nice to know that you will have brand new facilities if you get placed on the Indianpolis campus. The med student I chatted with was honest and she flat out said that she ended up at IU because she did not have as many choices of schools to pick from as she would have liked.However, she admitted that IU grew on her. Getting the pros and cons from an actual student was helpful and the honesty was very much appreciated." More from this Member | Report Response

If you're from IN, you'll almost definitely get in. If you're from another state, I really wouldn't bother unless you're stellar. The improvements look like they'll be awesome when they're done, but I got a feeling of blah when I interviewed (even though I liked the place when I had gone to the library to do research for undergrad). classes."

"The interview was held with one clinicl and one non-clinicl physicians. It was very laid back with a "get to know you" type of atmosphere. They concentrated a lot on the future of medicine and how well I as an applicant understood what medicine would be like when I began practicing it. There was a great deal of stress put on my ties to Indiana as well as my father's position as a physician. Tours where given after the interview and IU has an awsome campus. Every building looks like it is 2 years old and the research going on there is amazing. Next came a presentation by some of the faculty and finaly a question and answer session with current medical students. IU is the second largest medical school in the nation and was quite impressive. The worst part was that there are a million other people interviewing with you and they take very few out of state students (i.e. 15 out of ~280 for '98)" More from this Member | Report Response
