"Not a whole lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide definitely shows you the med school campus (regardless of what the other past feedback says... also, MSU may have changed it up this year, because they showed us all three building where we will be taking classes). However, I would have like to see more of the actual MSU campus. Also, the $360,000 OOS debt after four years isn't too attractive." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities need a face lift...." More from this Member | Report Response

"no gym (only on main msu campus, and you have to pay for it), no library on med school campus, sharing first year classes with DO students (the classes aren't even on the med school campus), having to decide which community campus you want to go to right after you get accepted, medical school is isolated" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really. I loved my experience. However, I want to go into rural medicine, and this campus does have a focus on that. A student who wants to go into a specialty or work in an urban area may feel like a bit of a fish out of water, although it was not the case for me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"city of east lansing, large campus, isolated med school, small medical school campus, no clinical experience until late 2nd year." More from this Member | Report Response

"No on site hospital and how everyone gets separated to different locations. they really work very hard to put you in the community hospital that you want, so if you are from OOS, and moving doesnt bother you, you should be fine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"no hospital on site" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location of the medical teaching facilities in the southeast corner of the campus, and the lack of university hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really can't find one thing! Im highly impressed by the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't realize that the neighboring D.O. school was so large and that the anatomy lab/lecture hall was shared." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much...I learned that anatomy is done by prosection, but there is a dissection elective that you can take if you want to. Plus, the students didn't mind because there was less time spent in the lab picking through fascia and more time for studying." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are not as updated as I would have thought." More from this Member | Report Response

"that the clinical facilities arent in the same campus. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour, no library." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour, we did not get the opportunity to see any of the facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that there is no dissection (everything is already cut up for you in prosection), and the fact that a lot of the classes are shared with D.O. students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The med students were not interested in talking to us at all until the designated social hour. No hellos and I felt like our presence was almost bothersome." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour given " More from this Member | Report Response

"We didn't really get a tour. On our way to the interview site the admissions staff member quickly walked us through a building pointing out a few locations. I suppose that was the tour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Sadly just the weather. It was snowing." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no tour and not a lot of interaction with current students so it was a little harder to get a feel for the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"No tour. I know the hospitals aren't right there, but the 1st and 2nd year facilities are. Let us see them!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Most everything. The curriculum is weird (lectures one year and PBL the other). The facilities are lackluster - which is probably why they didn't give a tour. The faculty seemed disinterested and disheartened by the school. The students seemed 'eh' about their experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"the cold weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, it wasn't terrible cold, but I've been told that michigan gets really bad. Also, out of state tuition is really expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities are old and east lansing is one wrong turn from literal cornfields. and it's not jesuit. jk. ;)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much really, it was my first interview. So i have nothing to compare it to; however, it was also very informal and it was easy to be myself." More from this Member | Report Response

"East Lansing is not that exciting." More from this Member | Report Response

"The buildings are old and not much to do in East Lansing...but it can mean a very positive studying atmosphere" More from this Member | Report Response

"The questions were ambiguous at best and the interviewer lacked a personality. How MSU will not call when they say they would. The have absolutely no regard for students at all. If they say they will call you in two weeks, wait five before you worry. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really except it really is a long day. (9:30-4) Expect to have some downtime in the afternoon between interviews (like an hour or more)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the questions were " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview with an uptight first year student. Also I missed out on the student talk time because my second interview lasted so long, and the interviewer was about 15 minutes late, but I'm not really complaining because she liked me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus was not that impressive over all. Where majority of the med students live, there are rail road tracks near by and apparantly the trains whistel and go by too often at times! " More from this Member | Report Response

"No disections, only prosections." More from this Member | Report Response

"MSU does not have one affiliated hospital. Michigan is a cornfield" More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy is taught by prosection and the histology course is taught using computerized slides. I wonder if these "time saving" adjustments will take away from the overall educational experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"The morning lectures were sort of long. " More from this Member | Report Response

"its cold, real cold, i'm from san diego and michigan is cold, but it was kinda cool b/c it started snowing during the day" More from this Member | Report Response

"Out-of-state tuition is $45,000/year. Most people cannot get in-state residency after first year, there is very little available in the way of grants and scholarships, and federal loans will not cover that much money so you will have to get private loans. Virtually all 3rd and 4th -year rotations take place outside Lansing, so you will have to move at the end of 2nd year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities seemed to be lacking a tiny bit. There is no library or workout facilities specific to the medical school. Parking seemed pretty far away. There is a great study/game room that is new though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Having to go off-site for the clinical years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Still unsure about the community campuses. Would they really all provide equal clinical experience? Also, wish we could have seen a few more of the facilities during the tour, but that would have meant a hike partway across campus. The facilities we did see were nice (coincidence?)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I forgot to say, the $65,000 budget for out of staters!!!! I almost fainted when I saw that! $45K just for tuition. I think out of staters subsidize in staters or something.. ouch! " More from this Member | Report Response

"My faculty interviewer (who I'm not sure was faculty or just an alum), though very friendly also, stared at me during the interview instead of interacting or responding in any way. It was distracting and felt unnatural, though he was kind enough to warn me beforehand." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing negative really... I wasn't very impressed with the facilities, they seemed out-dated. Also, if possible everyone may have seemed too relaxed, not as much drive for success as I have seen elsewhere. But, this is strictly a personal issue." More from this Member | Report Response

"havent thought much about it yet...at this point...nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was a little short becuase of time constraints." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour was a little haphazard...we were in a ruch because some interviews started earlier than usual. Also, on the tour didnt get to see the classrooms, library, or labs." More from this Member | Report Response

"Zip." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour really didn't emphasize the clinical areas within the school. Possibly because the clinics are set up at different areas within the state. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You aren't able to see the clinical sites because they are in other cities...but the students talked a lot about them, which helped. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Someone was hanging pictures (or something) next door during the two hour long morning presentation. Besides being boring, it was hard to concentrate because of the obnoxious pounding noise. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"First 2 hours were slow lecture from administration" More from this Member | Report Response

"Too cold! Most of the students are Michigan residents (which is okay) but there's no ethnic diversity in the class population; couldn't view the teaching hospital or any area that you would be performing your clinicals (since there's five different communities you could go to)" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxed it was" More from this Member | Report Response

"You won't know who the interviewers are at the MMI; they don't have nametags and can't tell you their position." More from this Member | Report Response

"1. This is an incredibly low stress interview, and the MMI was arguably one of the best parts. 2. I was too excited to get a good amount of sleep the night before, and by the end of the last presentation I was beat. Make every effort to get some decent shuteye beforehand, because it's a LONG day of interviews and presentations and it probably leaves a bad impression to nod off while someone is talking."

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

"I felt pretty prepared...nothing came as a shock....glad the interviews were closed...i believe this really encouraged the interviewer to focus on me as a person and not a number...." More from this Member | Report Response

"the red roof inn is in the SE of e.lansing...there is nothing in the SE of the town except for the hotel. also, michigan flyer's schedule is not flexible at all and they will not wait for you. i wouldn't have used the detroit airport. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You leave the main campus after two years and go to one of 6 other locations for your clinical years. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I failed to look at the price of out of state when I applied. It is outrageous. I was looking at how close family was to the school, not at the price." More from this Member | Report Response

"The strong focus on primary care." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very prepared for the interview, maybe a little too much. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The community campus are each geared towards something specific except GR and Kzoo. So chances are unless your are doing rurual, urban or international you will end up there. There are only 6 Lansing slots. Good to know since I would want to go to GR." More from this Member | Report Response

"What bus route to take to the school. I ended up walking an hour and half." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. But I did find it interesting that while the MD and DO students take the same basic science classes 1st year, the MD's need 75% to pass while the DO's need only 70%. Yes - there did seem to be a bit of (friendly) rivalry between the two schools! ;-)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was so poorly planned and that the food not only sucked, but wasn't even enough for a meal." More from this Member | Report Response

"How truly people-orientated the mission of the school is" More from this Member | Report Response

"1. High tuition fees 2. more prerequisites (more bio, more English, more humanities) than I realized. Should have done my homework." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't stress the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The meeting room can be a little tricky to find from the parking lot. Get there a half hour early traffic can be very bad around campus during the mornings." More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoy it! This was a super fun interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really really hope I get in. I didn't think I would like MSU as much as I did after hearing about the curriculum firsthand. It went from being a "safety" school to one of my top choices." More from this Member | Report Response

"Best interview experience by far. If you have the honor of receiving an invitation then be sure to make the most of it! Have fun and enjoy the moment." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview day and wonderful school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"they were really good at destressing you before the actual interview, but the interview questions were TOUGH" More from this Member | Report Response

"You have two interviews during the day, 30 minutes each. Each interview is one-on-one with either a student or faculty member (one interview you will have a student and one interview you will have a faculty member). It is very relaxed, much more than I thought it would be, because the interviewers are so personable and really interested in getting to know you, not trying to stump you with questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax. All the questions you will encounter are all here on SDN. Make sure you know your personal statements and activitied inside and out. One of my interviews went down the list of my activities/accomplishments and asked me a question about EACH ONE (15 to be exact)!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Go in with confidence, be relaxed, and you'll do absolutely fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews are semi-open/semi-closed file... They have access to everything but your grades and MCAT score (AMCAS activities, personal secondaries, major, degrees, institution). Also, stay with a student host (if you don't mind sleeping on a couch/ air mattress, or the awkwardness of using a total stranger's bathroom). I stayed with a student host (two M1 roommates), and it was great. They actually had three of their classmates come over, and after meeting 5 of the students in a non-academic setting, I definitely feel like I have a good understanding of what their student body is like. Overall, great school, and I truly would be happy to attend here!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Quality interview day....other schools should take note....." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview day is really relaxed...the admissions staff does a really great job of making you feel welcome and at ease. also, the interviewers are really friendly and laid back. they ask the required questions (what you see on SDN) so it really shouldn't be that stressful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The comaraderie among the faculty and students trumps all of the negative aspects of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You have two interviews- one with faculty, and one with a med student. Each has 3 standard questions that they ask you (6 total), that I think they ask everyone. <p> I stayed at the Quality Inn University. It looks a little shady when you drive up, but it's pretty nice inside, they have a pool, and it's just down the road from MSU. Just ask for a room that's far from the pool!" More from this Member | Report Response

"2 separate 30 min interviews. One with student, one with a faculty member." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt welcome at the interveiws, and actually enjoyed the experience. My interviewers really looked like they had read my file carefully. I only interveiwed with 2 other people, so it was a more personal experience, and was less assembly-lined than I have heard that interveiws can be. Interviewing in Marquette, Michigan is something I would recommend to people not only from the UP, but also northern Wisconsin and even Minnesota. " More from this Member | Report Response

"everyone was super nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"the campus is beautiful-lots of trees. there are students everyone since this is such a large campus. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall MSU is underrated if you are interested in attending a school that treat its students well and genuinely cares about providing care for the medically underserved, this is the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive and look forward to hearing back from the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"i had a great experience and will definitely consider attending if accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the interviewers were very friendly. We all had one student interview and one faculty interview. For me the faculty interview was more of a conversation intended to get to know me, while the student interview was more of an attempt to figure out if I knew my stuff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it went well. I didn't like how we had to find the way to our interviews on our own. I was almost late for one because I was confused about where the building I had to go to was located. I also found it slightly odd that all of the student interviewers (but not the student tour guide or the faculty interviewers) were in jeans/tshirts. Everyone else was dressed more business style." More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience in a whole was wonderful. Everyone was very friendly and ensured you felt comfortable. The info session at the beginning was very detailed and informative. All the students loved the place. Great diversity." More from this Member | Report Response

"A great opportunity to learn about the school. The interviews were relaxed yet professional while the interviewers were genuinely interested about who you were. They did a great job explaining the admissions process and did their best to assist you in any way possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a great interview, my faculty interviewer talked more than i did but he was very interesting, the student interviewer was really cool, they really make you feel welcome and wanted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers are required to ask 3 set questions and then they ask you anything they want. Many questions are ethical questions and about why you want to go to MSU. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews are only supposed to last 30 minutes, but my first one lasted 45-50 minutes. The faculty member didn't ask me the three equired questions, we just had a conversation about my background, future goals, and why the school is a good fit for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Low stress enjoyable interview day." More from this Member | Report Response

"Positive impression on the people at the school, negative impression on the facilities, costs, and what the school really has to offer students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Morning meeting with the deans, tour, lunch with students, interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"The staff was extremely accomodating. Directions made it easy to find. Interviews went smooth. Students convinced me to come. I'll be coming in the fall." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great interview experience. My first interview was with a medical student who was very nice, and very laid back. MSUCHM goes out of their way to make you feel relaxed before you interview. You have lunch with the med-students and go on a tour before you interview. My second interview was with a doctor, and he was very nice as well. However, he was a huge advocate of socialized medicine, which I wasn't really prepared for, since I have only heard bad things about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"First off, one of the admissions people highlight the program offered at the school to all the interviewers for the day.Then all the interviewers told each other about them selves. Then we are told how to get to our interviews, either by shuttle or by foot. I chatted with the other people till my first interview. My first interview was with a med student (year 2 also called M2), it went very nice and we had a nice conversation that lasted 20 min after our interview. I then went and interviewed with a doc for 30 min. After that, it was lunch time!! The food was great! Then the day was capped with the tour of the campus. The day went very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, my interview experience was laid-back and pleasant. I think MSU's M.D. school is overshadowed by its neighboring D.O. school and U of M in Ann Arbor. I love the holistic mission of this school and find its PBL curriculum to be ideal for me as I enjoy small group learning. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was probably the best ''interview experience'' that I have had. I've read some really negative reviews on SDN but was shocked at how nice everyone was and how they were straightforward and honest about their experiences. My interviewer was very professional, as one should expect, but the students giving the tour were dressed normally. I thought that was fine, as they are not involved in the admissions process and are volunteering to do it. This school boasts friendship and camaraderie, and that is all that I saw throughout the day. I'm impressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very organized. There was a well prepared introducation to the school by the dean of admissions. A tour, and a really great lunch, and then we went to our interviews that were all over campus. Overall I had a very positive day and felt very comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"the people ( staff/ students) were impressive the clinical exposure wasnt. the admissions office did a good job of keeping the day very organized and structured." More from this Member | Report Response

"Two interviews. Both 30 minutes. Student and Faculty. Casual, but they have 3 questions they are obligated to ask. Ethics, Drive, Motivation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I was not that impressed with the curriculum or the facilities. My faculty interviewer was wonderful and incredibly nice. My student interviewer was a first year, couldn't really answer many of my questions, acted like she didn't want to be there and kept giving me weird facial expressions when she didn't agree with my opinions. She kept telling me how if she'd had more time she could have come up with better questions than the ones they were required to ask and that those questions were stupid." More from this Member | Report Response

"all of the questions are on this site. The student interview was first, followed directly by the faculty member's. They are over before you know it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I went in very neutral, but left absolutely hating it. I almost cannot beileive I have such strong feeelings as I rarely do. The students all seemed very unprofessional, including my M1 student interviewer who was both clueless and socially awkward (I couldn't imagine how he got in, let alone why he's interviewing applicants). He showed up late in a dirty sweatshirt with backpack in tow. Would have been nice had he and other interviewers had shown some respect for the dozen applicants there in suits. The other students kept bragging about how often they skip class and just watch the videotaped lectures. The facilities were adequate, however the campus is in the middle of nowhere. Also, first year classes are with the Osteopathic school, which I think would create some awkwardness. All in all, the students and faculty seemed sub-par and not at the same calibur as the other schools I've interviewed at. " More from this Member | Report Response

"overall, it was good. interview day was good. it gave you a great picture of the school. the hours leading to the interview made the whole day seem less stressful. they were there for you. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Went really well with my physician interviewer. First one was with student and it won't well too. Nice to do the student interview first." More from this Member | Report Response

"Quick Snack, introductions, interview with student and faculty, and lunch with students. The school is beautiful but HUUUUUUGGEEE. I was wondering why they didn't offer a tour, but one of the students took me on a driving tour and the place is tooooooo large for that. It would be chaotic!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were more of a conversation. There is one with a faculty member and one with a student. They make you feel very comfortable, so it isn't too stressful. They have three questions they are required to ask you and then they just focused on specific activities that I have done and am doing now.

"I had a student interviewer, a first year that was more interested in getting to know me as a person more than anything. She asked me the three main questions already listed on this site (why medicine, why chm, why is being a physician different than other professions). My second interviewer was an extremely nice MD, Phd who asked me the same 3 questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I drove down from the Upper Peninsula the day before my interview and stayed the night with family that lived ½ hour away from the campus. The staff was really friendly. It is a unique atmosphere; there is a push towards group success rather than individual achievement. Neither of the interviewers was aggressive in asking questions. It was more of an attempt to get to know me rather than know what I have done. CHM seems to be committed to giving you the best chance possible. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is overall very progessive in every aspect including the interview. They even offered a 3rd interview (you do 2 that day) if you felt you did badly. They really want see the best of you. The faculty interview was awesome and student interview was very informative about the school. I felt student interview was less of interview and more of oppurtunity to learn about the school."

"I arrived in Lansing a day early to get to know the area a little better and meet students. That was a good idea because a lot of students left for a big conference on the day of the interview. The first thing I noticed about the students was that they were very friendly and seemed very close-knit. The administration also cares a lot about the students. They go to great measures to make them feel comfortable by providing resources in abundance. The school is also well equipped. One of the school's founding father is, I believe, the inventor of the CT Scan and MRI imaging machines (though I'm not exactly sure). As a result, the school’s imaging equipment is top of the line. Though the school is not a wireless campus, there are ethernet outlets everywhere. The school is a community based school so clinical skills are strongly emphasized. Students are given opportunities to shadow doctors, work in community clinics – even travel around the world. All of this is financially supported by the school (if you ask). One thing I noticed about this school is that it is not highly ranked. Despite a board score average congruent with national averages (214 last year), a high passing rate (97% of the students “passed” USMLE with 165 or greater), and great matching rates, the school has low research and endowment funding and does not have a major hospital which lowers its national rank. Nevertheless, opportunities to do research and access to major hospitals abound – all you have to do is ask. As for my interview that was cool. My first interviewer was a student. He asked me basic questions but he was much more interested in talking about my experiences. My second interview was with an old school physician. She was very warm and made the interview very comfortable. Both interviews were excellent. I hope I get into this school, it was a pleasure to visit and I think it’ll be a good fit for me.

"The student interviewer was so incredibly nice and made the experience as casual and relaxed as an interview could be. She had a great sense of humor and was very conversational and responsive to my answers. She was given 3 questions that the admissions committee wanted answers to, but she said I could skip any of them if i needed time to think about them and we would come back to them later. The majority of the conversation just stemmed from her interest in my experiences. The interview I had with the physician was a bit more stressful. I felt like he asked me at least 10 pointed questions (granted, most were from the past questions listed on this site!) and made no verbal or non-verbal response to my answers - just immediately threw another question at me. But at the end (it lasted about 45 minutes) he lightened up significantly and became very personal -- we started conversing and I left with a warm feeling about the process. He must have just been feeling me out before opening up to me bc he turned out to be an extremely nice man! So don't worry if you feel you are under attack at first!"

"Terrible questions. The one about naming an example of a difficult patient and why? And how would you deal with that patient. It was a tough question for someone that had no experience in the medical field. Having four years experience, I thought it was ironic that a medical student was judging me on my answer when he should have been grabbing a pen and taking notes for himself.

"I applied for the RPP, and they matched me to interview with a student who is in the RPP. I thought that was really nice. They have access to everything but your MCAT scores, grades, and classes that you took. I did not get any questions about them either from the interviewers. It is so nice to find out so soon after your interview if you are in! Dr. Shafer called me a little after 8pm on the following Tuesday...so don't get worried if you don't get a call earlier in the evening. I hope to see you great people in the fall! :-) " More from this Member | Report Response

"First of all I should say that I was called back to do a third interview. They do this when there is a 'discrepancy' between your first two interview scores. So I'm writing this to give reassurance to anyone who might have to go through this, because it causes additional stress. Each interviewer is required to ask you three questions that MSUCHM provides them. My first interview was with an uptight first-year student who kept looking at the clock, and wanted to make sure we didn't run over the 1/2 hour. He would ask me questions about my unusual background, but it was apparent he wasn't really interested. He didn't have a relaxed manner at all. Even so, I just assumed it was his personality and didn't think it went that bad, but he gave me a bad review. In retrospect, he didn't like my answer to one of the questions "what are some of the responsibilites of a physician and how does it differ from other professions?" But my answer was not the typical run-of-the mill answer, and he wanted convention, so stick to the conventional answers (i'm sure I don't have to tell anyone that, anyway). My second interview was completely the opposite, it lasted an hour and a half. She interjected the three required questions and let me know what they were. She actually gave me additional advice and said she hoped I would get accepted, but that she wasn't on the adcom. So, I got the two polar opposite interview experiences-one recognized the fact that I had worked hard to get this point, and wanted me to get accepted, the other didn't recognize anything and expected me to keep jumping through his monkey-hoops and giving him the exact answers he wanted to hear. So the third interview was with a second-year student who was very nice. He said "third times the charm, right?" Then he proceeded to ask me the same 3 questions-this time paying genuine attention to me, and he also seemed honestly impressed with my experiences and extracurricular activities. We talked a good deal about PBL in the second year curriculum, and he made every effort to nod and smile and give me assurance that my answers made sense (I had prepared for them all weekend). In the end, I was accepted about 18 days from my first interview. My feeling is that if the faculty interviewer really likes you, you are in a pretty good position, because I can't see why they would weigh the opinions of a first year student that heavily (I mean, crap, the guy has been in med school a whole 3 months, he doesn't know a much more than I do at this point). It was a pain in the butt, but worth it, because it is a good school, and I'm not letting my experience with the first interview bias me. Check out this website, I think its all you need to know to prepare for any interview. http://eduserv.hscer.washington.edu/bioethics/topics/index.html" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, very positive. The students seemed nice and helpful. There seem to be volutneer opportunites outside classroom that students actively persue. Staff and faculty seemed friendly, helpful and well informed. They interview on Thursdays and review applications on Tuesday night, and if you are accepted they call you Tuesday night itself. I was impressed by this quick turn around time! It saved me a lot of waiting and worrying! :-)! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were quite relaxing and fun!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was almost fabulous, although the morning orientation lecture was a bit too long. My student interviewer was a first year, so although she did not know much it was the easiest interview experience I could have imagined. My faculty interviewer however, was not quite that laid back. He was put off by the fact that I have extensive research experience at prestigious universities and hospitals. Despite the fact that I have been involved in a tone of humanitarian work which I love he said that due to my well developed research skills I may fit in better at Harvard or Hopkins. He began to especially stress this point when he asked where my parents worked and I said they worked at Harvard. I tried to explain to him that I specifically did not apply to those schools because that is not the sort of medical education experience I am looking for, but he just continued to press that my research experience says otherwise. Just a tad presumptuous and completely wrong. So yeah, that was not too much fun. He also definitely pushed on other questions and disagreed a lot for the purpose of seeing how I would respond. I was a bit thrown off because I heard MSUs interviews are really laid back, but second year students I spoke with afterwards said he was the only professor that was a but too serious. Other kids I interviewed with had the typically laid back experience. Otherwise, the interview day was great. The campus is beautiful and the staff really works for the students there and are appreciative of their hard work." More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole thing was very easy going. The people made quite an effort to help you feel comfortable.

"This was my first interview of the year so I was nervous when I first got there. There was nothing to be nervous about, both of my interviews were VERY conversational. Neither one of them (student and faculty) were "out to get me" they truly just wanted to talk. I felt like the pressure was off a little because they do not have access to GPA or MCAT, but do read your essays ahead of time. My faculty interviewer just asked me questions about my past experiences and at the end gave me his card and told me to email him with any questions. Each had 3 specific questions to ask, then we just talked after that. I wish I would have been a little more relaxed and let my personality show more. I was uptight."

"The interviews went great, I was MORE than prepared, and displayed much genuine passion and they were extremely impressed. It was more conversational. Read all questions from interview feedback, and get your answers ready. Go over your essays, they asked me about my poetry writing cause i wrote an essay on it. the student one was on ethical dilemma i had thought about recently, why CHM? interaction with diff person and how it was resolved? Faculty one was why med? what do u do for fun? (luckily for me, she played b-ball like me :p), what specialty would i like to pursue? why CHM? what are my 3 strengths? And they both asked me about poetry, cause i wrote my essay on it, and they were both very much interested. Faculty asked me if i was ok staying in east lansing for another 2-4yrs. Faculty asked me about what makes a medical prof different from others. They both wanted me to talk about my international experiences and my background. It wasnt bad at all, the rest of the day is pretty informal. Dont sweat it at all, just go over your material, and the interview feedback and you'll be fine. It was a breeze, infact i started talkin to faculty about her interests, geriatrics, and then i brought up medicare bill, and we were laughing about it! Then we both talked about interests in b-ball, and started talking about her daughter's team that she's coaching. I had a COOL interviewer! REMEMBER this is your chance to shine!! Whatever they dont ask, bring it into the conversation, so they can TRULY know you! Its only 30mins so you need to make them feel confident that you are a great match for CHM.

He had a question or two he had to ask but he really wasn't concerned with formalities. Most everyone else I talked to was the same. A couple of students said their student interviewers were a little intense. Second interview was with a the head of the family practice department. He is a legend in family medicine in michigan and this interview was more strssfull then the first. After about ten minutes he loosened up and we hit it off. He even game me a book he had written which I am told is a good sign after an interview with him. He was very familiar with my file and asked some pointed questions. Nothing difficult though."
