"The students were very positive and the labs and lecture halls were nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty and students I met were very friendly. Some of the presentations could have been really boring, but the speakers were quite humorous and inviting. The clinical skills lab is really cool...and it's run by one of the funniest ladies I've ever encountered. The integrated curriculum is a great concept." More from this Member | Report Response

"The comraderie of the student body, the absence of cutthroat competition." More from this Member | Report Response

"They put you at ease, good facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The med school has some great resources for students, in particular they have a lab where you can learn proper technique for a variety of procedures on computer-controlled dummies.

What impressed you negatively?

"Construction around the school made it difficult to find somewhere to park. Other than that there was nothing that I didn't like." More from this Member | Report Response

"Their main hospital looked a bit bland, kinda like every other hospital. But we didn't get the chance to visit the children's hospital, which is their pride and joy. I'm also personally not the biggest fan of MMI's. We didn't get to interact with that many med students (1 during the tour and 1 during lunch) during the day." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were some older facilities. Had to wait a few hours to interview. Wish the tour was longer." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish the tour was more comprehensive so I could have seen the hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"Grades in quartiles" More from this Member | Report Response

"Organ system curriculum" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities themselves are nice and updated, but still kind of drab. It just didn't feel like a place I want to spend four years. It didn't feel very welcoming either." More from this Member | Report Response

"MMI is kind of informal, but overall more effective for finding people who are suited for a career in patient care." More from this Member | Report Response

"In the past years, the Step 2 pass rate at UC has fallen below the national average once or twice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour guide was not very helpful and would have liked to interact with more students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very long and it sort of dragged on towards the end" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that classes are not blocked. As a student, I will be taking several classes at once just like in undergrad." More from this Member | Report Response

"They still split their coursework into traditional classes. That bugged me a lot. And the facilities seem a bit over-the-top...money spent on making it that good could have been spent else ware better. I really didn't like the MMI, and they the faculty seemed extremely devoted to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cincinnati's not that great a city." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area was not very attractive. I had read this on sdn but when i saw it, i still had that 'wow' feeling...lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"Unlike UofM, you can't pick and choose when to take quizzes and tests (before a deadline) online. Pretty expensive too." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the interviewers needed a little more practice before the first round" More from this Member | Report Response

"Area around the school is not the best" More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the construction, but that just means new things!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction is a little annoying, but it seems like it will really be done next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"construction (which will be completed before August)" More from this Member | Report Response

"construction everywhere!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewer was very impersonal...we had no conversation besides the questions he asked, and the responses I gave...everything else was great (the construction will be done by summer 2008)" More from this Member | Report Response

"1 block away is pretty thuggish." More from this Member | Report Response

"my interview asked me whether i had any other interviews so she could see how ''mean to me she could be'' but she wasn't really at all. it just scared me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Cincinnati. There were sirens and screams all night outside my hotel one night. The food is not very imaginative as far as I can tell. Every where I went (I drove around for 4 hours one day), everything looked grungy and run-down. There also didn't seem to be anything particularly unique about the curriculum. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was a little cramped, the school is undergoing major renovation and many classes have been condensed. All construction should be finished by July. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the med school facilities seemed a bit old, but not too bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"-Lack of contact with 3rd or 4th year students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The dry lectures about the curriculum and financial aid. Very straight-faced and serious speakers." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was still under constr. but it will be ready soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer- seemed totally disinterested in me as either person or student, and wouldn't follow up any answer I gave. Felt like I was left hanging. The presentations- whatever was said about other medical schools was finished with ''but we do it better'' or some variant thereof. Total turnoff, knocking the competition. The students- all day, I never encountered a student happy to be at UC. They were happy just to be somewhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction/Parking troubles really made the location feel poor. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction...but it should be almost complete by the time I start Aug. 2007" More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a lot of construction (to be completed by Jan 08) and the Clifton area is pretty intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have liked to speak with students other than our tour guides. I randomly talked to some students for a few minutes and asked them why they liked the school, and they didn't seem too enthusiastic about being there. Also, a lot of people I interviewed with were reapplicants and just wanted to get in SOMEWHERE. I also stayed at the Holmes Hotel, which is an inexpensive option, but also feels like I was staying as a patient at the hospital...it was kind of depressing so that and all of the construction across the street may have clouded my impression of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"class size about 160; construction not yet finished; no student dorm or centralized housing; board scores not that impressive (school average 224, nat'l avg 219); tour guides did not know how AOA selection works; staff helpful but seemingly not friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"not too much. maybe all the construction but it should be done by jan 08 and it will be beautiful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much..." More from this Member | Report Response

"I found the tour guide to be nice but less than enthusiastic. Also, my tour guide was the only student I spoke with. I didn't feel like I got as good a feel for the school, due to the limited contact with students. Also, the office people weren't very friendly..." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was 15 minutes late...and he was eating animal crackers during my interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't get a sense that people were excited to be there whether faculty or students" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are all under construction. But, they will be finished by fall 2007!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Medical SChool not in safest area but no worse than any other school in an urban area." More from this Member | Report Response

"Personally, that the campus might become boring - I had visited many times and had done research here over the summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not as many resources as some other schools. Lots of construction, which is good, but makes finding anything really confusing. Also, the library is not in tact and things seem thrown here and there to keep it all on campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cincinnati proper. Eesh. Scary place to live." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cincinnati is not an exciting place to live in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of construction, but this will be a good thing once it's all finished of course." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction Sucks" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was fine. I liked the school more than I thought." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was a little hurried and there wasn't a chance to interact with current students aside from during the tour with the tour guide. It would've been nice to have a chance to have lunch with a current student and just talk with no other competing things to be done." More from this Member | Report Response

"The notice given before my interview date - Plane tickets were too expensive so I drove 8 hours to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"CONSTRUCTION, cold weather, cincinnati isn't the most entertaining city..." More from this Member | Report Response

"construction sucks, but it will be gone soon enough to leave some nice brand-new facilities in it's wake." More from this Member | Report Response

"The massive construction zones, and the tour was short and uninteresting." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer said that students there study alone contrary to what the students and the admissions office said." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dark and gloomy hallways do to ongoing construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"the large amount of construction displaced many parts of the college, such as library and study areas" More from this Member | Report Response

"I guess the construction, although it didn't seem to be too big a deal, and the new facilities should be impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"All of the construction. Parts of the buildings were gutted and just about anywhere you went it seemed you had to go through a construction zone. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the presenters spoke negatively about other med schools, this came up more than once." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction construction construction. At least it should all be done by the end of my first year should I end up attending here." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction never seems to stop at UC..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The med school is under construction, everything is underground and it seems as though the students spend their time in tunnels all day long without seeing outside" More from this Member | Report Response

"construction and the surrounding area" More from this Member | Report Response

"I knew going in I was interviewing for a spot on the alternate list. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Just the construction...it will pass." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing...maybe the weather? The renovations are not attractive, but they will improve the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The surrounding area was scary and felt unsafe. I drove around Cincinnati and the for a good hour after I arrived just to see what it was like, and except for the actual downtown area, it seemed to be all unsafe and scary." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the construction and the surrounding neighborhood. It wasn't safe and " More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking charges, directions." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was exam time, so the students were stressed. Grades are given on a curve rather than pass/fail." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was all this construction going on...but who cares, right?" More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers started off by saying that he had been doing this for 7 years and he would ask me questions that I would give the same answers that everyone else did and it would be very boring for him. He didn't seem interested at getting to know me at all. He asked some good questions about my research, but his attitude was bad. If my second faculty interviewer hadn't made the effort to get to know me, I would have felt like it was a total waste of time. Also, the interview weekend was way too long. They kept us out late all 3 nights (11pm, 2:30am, and 11pm). There was stuff going on all the time and I never actually had a chance to sit back and think about how I felt about the school. Way too much for one weekend." More from this Member | Report Response

"WEATHER WAS A BIT NASTY THAT DAY AND THE CONSTRUCTION HAS EVERYTHING JUMBLED." More from this Member | Report Response

"Really $hi##y surrounding area. Very hard to imagine wanting to live there." More from this Member | Report Response

"construction, but i can deal with it, they've done a really good job to provide students with other places to study while the library is closed" More from this Member | Report Response

"the people i met, the construction work" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fire drill. We had to go outside for half and hour and it was really cold. There is a lot of construction going on. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Current medical school facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction - although it will be great when its done. The financial aid talk was pretty worthless." More from this Member | Report Response

"There's lots of construction, but that'll pass." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were a couple of questions that threw me off, and my interviewer seemed to keep asking me about funding healthcare reform, which I was not prepared for. The interviewer was also about 15 minutes late. Also, there is a lot of construction going on inside the building." More from this Member | Report Response

"the whole area of the medical school is blown up with construction" More from this Member | Report Response

"construction was yucky" More from this Member | Report Response

"Only that many of the students are from Ohio schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of construction everywhere. The library is presently split up in three or more locations, that is the ideal situation for studying. Fortunately, it'll be remedied soon." More from this Member | Report Response

"the construction going on around campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, there's a lot, and I mean a lot, of construction going on, which means that much of the cool stuff they are building won't be ready for several years, and getting around campus isn't so easy with entrances and hallways being closed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, but it seemed to lack the gestalt of some other schools I have already visited. hard to put a finger on it exactly..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't get to meet many students, which would have been nice. Our tour guide was nice, but definitely high-strung. I don't have a good sense of what the students there are like." More from this Member | Report Response

"construction - the library is being completely reconstructed in addition to many areas around the facility" More from this Member | Report Response

"Roger Smith is a jerk. Watch out if he is your interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much" More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of a personal touch. That's vague but I didn't feel many people on the interview took time to get to know the interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I really enjoyed the medical campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, although lunch was served earlier than I would have liked. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That most of the other students that were interviewing with me probably will not attend. (they were a real competitive bunch...I really liked them!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"the area around the campus is pretty shady... not very pretty" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt very closed-in in the building--there are no windows and low ceilings. Also, the emphasis on having time to party and drinking got a bit old. " More from this Member | Report Response

"all the rooms and lecture auditoriums are windowless...but I hear the school plans to build a new MSB within 6 years to address this problem. The library is going to go through reconstruction, so I'm not sure where the library will be located come next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not alot of scholarships" More from this Member | Report Response

"From the exterior, the appearance of the school is not overwhelmingly beautiful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much; it's pretty much my first choice." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is a lot of construction planned for the college of medicine (so there will be inconveniences) " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both of the faculty members that gave the presentation, and also the medical students that gave the tutor talked about how there was still time in medical school to party there. There is a place and time for everything, and interview day is not the day to talk about partying at your school." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot of the school was under construction, so we did not get to see the library. Also, the facilities seemed a little old." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer didn't show up, the student tour guides were not very positive about the area the school was in, the classes, or overall experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't think the area was all that great and the financial aid presenter was very, very boring and not that helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was raining, and i couldn't see the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer seemed more concerned with talking about his research than with interviewing me. Whenever he would ask me a question, he would interput me and not let me finish. The financial aid presentation was also pretty bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"didn't like the honor/high pass/pass/fail system. Wish that it was just pass/fail. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the interviewers were stood up by their committee. One gentleman showed up for a 9 am interview and the person who was supposed to interview him was not there. The interviews were scattered all over the campus so some students needed to leave the building to find another building in which to interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. No wireless connections that I saw. " More from this Member | Report Response

"No wireless hotspots in the Medical Sciences Building...so think twice about that new iPaq PDA with integrated WLAN. Maybe in the future, though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. Maybe the formaldehyde stench in gross lab..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not in the best part in Cincinnati" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you stray a few blocks away from the med school, you quickly get to some REALLY bad parts of town. Also they're renovating the med school so a bunch of stuff, like the library is getting shuffled around. Also, the library isn't open 24-7. I think it only stays open until 12." More from this Member | Report Response

"I received a parking ticket." More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilites weren't anything special. it seemed very obvious from the medical students that the faculty weren't very available to the students. also, the clifton area where the campus is located is a dump. the other medical students said that racial tension was very high in the city and it is very scary to walk around at night alone. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was very rude, abrupt, and even argumentative at times. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The city. I passed through a very bad part on the way to the campus that was quite shady and I also heard that the area around the school isn't the best part of town." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to walk outside in the snow to get to my interview which was in another building." More from this Member | Report Response

"Brochure stating that 60% of entering students are age 18-22!" More from this Member | Report Response

"People in cincinnati eat chili over speghetti!!! And think its good!!! Amazing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location--Clifton isn't the best neighborhood." More from this Member | Report Response

"The amount of time they spend in lectures, the students and fellow interviewees, their match list, and Cincinnati in general." More from this Member | Report Response

"Cincinnati." More from this Member | Report Response

"The older buildings." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the building was kind of drab. No really great innovations in the curriculum, but there is an effort to integrate information and provide small group discussions. The clinical skills lab is a great asset." More from this Member | Report Response

"The neighborhoods. The med center is bordered by two areas that are not that great ("hoods"). The other side is undergrad campus, and the other is a nicer ritzy place." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"No official graduate/ professional network/ society as I've seen at some other schools - but that's just a fine detail." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Find more comfortable shoes because you'll be on your feet a lot. Also you don't need a notebook because they give you one and you can't take one into the MMI anyways. Finally, I wish I knew that I should relax more, a calm demeanor is an asset at an MMI." More from this Member | Report Response

"How nice the weather would be. I visited around October and was expecting some chilly weather but it wasn't that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"That you really can't prepare for these kinds of interviews. Just be yourself." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had done an MMI before" More from this Member | Report Response

"You need to own a car" More from this Member | Report Response

"HOW LONG THE DAY WOULD BE - JESUS" More from this Member | Report Response

"The first thing they do is go over the MMI and give you some tips. It really helped and cleared up a lot of questions that I had about the interview process." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would like to have known what time the day ended." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the MMI was going to be the last activity of the day; however this was only the case for our group." More from this Member | Report Response

"How much the MMI would suck." More from this Member | Report Response

"The MMI is kind of fun, not as stressful as I thought it would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"that I did not need to start studying MMI questions from google. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How low-key and slightly chaotic the process is in reality." More from this Member | Report Response

"Building is quite large, may be helpful to come the day before and know where exactly you're supposed to be" More from this Member | Report Response

"That they will still make 40-50 offers this cycle. I thought they were done and we were interviewing only for the wait list." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring a water bottle into the MMI interview, your mouth will get dry from all the talking!" More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A. I was a grad student here, so I knew everything about the school already :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"how nice this school is!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That MMIs are FUN! It seemed stressful, but as it was happening I started having a lot of fun. " More from this Member | Report Response

"If you're coming for a PSTP interview, they will put you up in the Holms on Eden. It's a converted hospital. Bring a blanket/sweatshirt something, cause it was rather cold. " More from this Member | Report Response

"UC is a much better school than I thought...they have some nationally acclaimed programs, such as Peds (Cinci Children's is the nation's largest pediatric hospital system)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Eating skyline chili gives me the runs, so having it the night before my interview was dumb." More from this Member | Report Response

"remember to bring comfy shoes for the tour. they stress financial aid. after one year, you can pay instate tuition. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I sort of expected I wouldn't really love Cincinnati, so I guess nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"They offer guided tours of Children's Hospital. Sadly I wasn't able to schedule one." More from this Member | Report Response

"How focused they are on research." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour might go through the dissection lab so leave your jacket in the conference room!" More from this Member | Report Response

"that the int. is mainly based on the amcas primary. nothing about ethics, healthcare or anything like that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"UC has an overall culture, both institutional and personal, that is totally wrong for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to walk to Cincinnati Children's for my interview...I wore heels" More from this Member | Report Response

"If you stay at the Holmes Hospital Hotel, expect to order in a crappy meal. I did speak to another interviewee that stayed at the Millenium Hotel, about 10 minutes away from campus, and she said it was very nice and the same price as the Holmes Hotel." More from this Member | Report Response

"b/c of a snafu w/ the city's fire-coding, that the College of Medicine is unsure when the new buildings will open (could be as early as Oct 2007 or as late as Jan 2008); anyone over 90 percent gets Honors, and if not enough people do, they try to max the number of those who make Honors; admissions is delayed processing interviewees and will get back to us in more like 4 weeks (instead of 2 weeks)" More from this Member | Report Response

"not too much, i am a cincinnati native so nothing surprised me" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had reviewed the curriculum, but they covered it pretty well in the introduction." More from this Member | Report Response

"UC is building a new addition to their current building, and the building looks really terrible right now - exposed wiring, etc etc. I'm sure it will be nice eventually, but it looks pretty dreary right now." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. I felt really prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"How much I would like UCCCOM , will be attending in 2006." More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction- I got so lost just trying to find the admissions office. There were no signs and no directions given." More from this Member | Report Response

"Yahoo maps and directions are worthless with all the construction. Bring the phone number of your hotel with you, you will probably need to call for directions." More from this Member | Report Response

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really. But it takes a long time to walk from the parking garage to the interview, so don't be late!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I was impressed as I thought I would be." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing. SDN provided most info i needed" More from this Member | Report Response

"The class is almost full and may well be by the time my app goes to committee (in ~4 weeks they say). This means waitlist at best. The school's educational goals are much in line with my goals. I didn't realize they would be such a good fit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Which parking garage to park at for free (even though it ended up being free anyway when it wasnt supposed to)." More from this Member | Report Response

"As the review before me wrote, that i would actually like the school. I thought it was going to be a thoughtless safety but it's a great school and the people there are marvelous." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I like it there. I thought I already knew where I was going to go....now I will have some hard decision making to do I think." More from this Member | Report Response

"The construction is huge right now, and its hard to imagine the new facilities being completed and hassle-free in the near future. Also, interviews tend to expose weaknesses of an application instead of strengths, and I hadn't thought enough about how I would approach certain topics." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure you allot about 30 minutes if you have the early interview, to get to your interview's office, which MAY NOT BE in the college of medicine (MSB)... you will have to walk there and you don't want to be late" More from this Member | Report Response

"You need to get your parking validated before you leave the admissions office. Also, arrive early. You are expected to go find your interview location and be there at the time of your interview. Your interviewer will not pick you up in the Admissions Office." More from this Member | Report Response

"That despite arriving really early, I should have arrived even earlier to navigate the construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"How highly ranked UC is in pediatrics" More from this Member | Report Response

"It is such a great school. They have a lot of great faculty, hospitals, facilities and resources for students. What I really like about the school was the atmosphere. It is not overly competitive, but everyone still strives to do their best out of a sense of pride for going to UCCOM" More from this Member | Report Response

"MMI was not stressful at all. They do a great job of thoroughly explaining how and why the MMI works at the very start of the interview day. I liked having the MMI first thing so it was out of the way and I could focus on learning about the school afterward." More from this Member | Report Response

"OK, i'll try to make sense as much as possible. PPl have said it, dont bother to prepare and may be yes. But the questions still has things in it that it'll work to your advantage if you prepared. But dont prepare by using MMI questions online. Prepare with the questions that they had used in previous yrs. e.g something challenging in your life, how you'll balance cultural differences, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview weekend is a bit of a marathon. The schedule for us was: Dinner Thursday night with current students. Friday: Information session and talks by program faculty followed by interviews with PSTP program faculty (2) and for the medical (seperate interview that doesn't matter for the PSTP) followed by dinner and a trip to a bar with current students. Saturday: Brunch with current students then interview with current students (2 at once) then a catered dinner with current students and faculty at a faculty member's house. Overall, the weekend is fun and not too stressful, and all the chances to talk to the current students and program faculty allowed me to get a great sense of the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was non-confrontational and very pleasant. it would have lasted only 15 minutes, but I made a point to bring up several aspects of my application that I felt needed to be addressed (weaknesses that were not mentioned, some of my most important strengths and why UC is the perfect fit for me) and turned my interview into a conversation. remember to sell yourself, and bring up each weakness in your app and what you did to overcome them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. My interviewers created a very relaxed environment which helped me to give the best and most genuine answers possible, and I honestly felt they wanted me to do well. The facilities in the school are still under construction, but the ones that are already in place are wonderful and they have great resources overall despite the work still being done on the school. All the faculty, staff and students seem to be very enthusiastic about their work and the school overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day programming began at 11am and concluded at 1pm. Interviews were held before or after the programming. The dean of students begins with an overview of the application process and exactly what happens after the interview. Next we ate lunch from Bagel Boys. It was nothing special, but it wasn't bad. Then a faculty member explained the curriculum and answered questions. I really enjoyed the faculty member he was candid with his responses and clearly voiced his pros and cons of the curriculum. Finally a financial aid officer explained everything money related. After this it was off to my interview. The interview was very laid back. There were no probing questions or deep philosophical questions. Most of the time we discussed research and the different courses I had taken. Overall it was a relaxing afternoon and I really enjoyed my visit. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My UC experience was fine, but not thrilling. I didn't get a lot of enthusiasm from anyone about the school, which concerns me. The dean that talked with us at the beginning seemed rushed, the financial aid person didn't crack a smile once, the tour guide was nice but not enthusiastic....just not all that exciting. My interview was good, but I'm not sure if my interviewer had read my file, as there was no mention of anything that my personal statement discussed. My biggest criticism, however, was that I only spoke with one student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My preparation for the interviews paid off tremendously - knowing the ins and outs of my application and preparing answers for questions the interviewers might ask. It does not hurt to occasionally throw in interesting details. Essentially, come to the interviews with an agenda to get across: who you are. Don't just anticipate." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was as relaxing as an interview day can be. I interviewed first in the morning, so I had the rest of the day to think about nothing else but learning about the school. My interviewer seemed critical, but I still felt like she understood who I am and will be able to represent me well." More from this Member | Report Response

There is alot of construction going on all over the campus, which may look bad, but that only means that the school is headed for bigger things. My undergraduate school is/was the same way so I'm used to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was definitely tough. The interviewer really controlled it and didn't let me go off too much. It was a little scripted in that he had a packet in front of him. In the first part he asked questions and wrote answers. in the second part, he turned the paper over to the blank side, and asked hypothetical/ethical/situational questions. In the third part, he turned the paper back over and asked me about why i wanted to attend UC. it was somewhat but not totally relaxed; the interviewer was definitely a friendly guy. they really nit pick details in your application, so be prepared for that. such as, "why were your sophomore year grades not as good" or "how did you study for your mcat" or "are you satisfied with each part of your mcat, even your verbal which is a couple points lower than the others?" and the situational questions are definitely tough. he kept saying, there is no right or wrong, i'm just trying to pick your brain."

"Upon arrival I was directed to my first interview which was decidedly more laid back and low stress than other interviews I have had. It seemed like the university was having some scheduling problems during the interview day. It was also strange having lunch at 11:00 while being given the financial aid presentation. The strange lunch time aside it was overall a pretty positive experience. I enjoyed what I saw and what I learned about the university and I wouldn't mind attending there."

"I interviewed with a very nice lady, who was well-prepared for my visit. Before I walked in, she studied my application from top and bottom and wrote down 4-5 pages of notes and questions. She told me that she will be presenting me to the committee and that her goal was to learn more about me so that she can make a strong case for me. We proceeded to some standard questions regarding my family background, personal attributes/qualifications, clinical experiences, educational background. After that, she asked some difficult ethical questions. Although difficult, these questions were very predictable so I didn't have much problems with them. My interview was supposed to go 60 minutes max. It ended up going over 85 minutes. I have to say, I was very fortunate. My interviewer cannot be any nicer and more supportive.

We met with a variety of docs, and got to see the sim lab and use the da vinci machine, so that was very cool. The interview was fine, low stress.The students mentioned that ethical questions were popular, but I didn't get one." More from this Member | Report Response

"They did a wonderful job giving turn by turn directions for arriving at the Dean's office where the presentations were held." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was high stress for me mostly because it was my first interview and I was nervous. She seemed to dwell on my GPA from undergrad (which sucked since I graduated 5 yrs ago). Overall, the questions were fast paced and I got the impression she wanted to make me feel uncomfortable to see how I handled pressure. Also she didn't seem too interested in my research and when I asked her about any opportunities for research she replied there wasn't much because I'd be too busy. This interview definitely did not feel "conversational," more like confrontational." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low key, easy-going, direct and un-cheesy. The interviewer was NOT interested in my "onstage" self. She wanted to get a feel for who I really was. Excellent." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started off with my interview. The interviews are with members of the faculty whose offices are located all over the building. The interview was conversational. The first half he asked me about my application, activities, grades etc. The second half he asked ethical and situational questions and wanted to hear what plays into my decision etc. Afterwards there was a presentation and lunch followed by a tour with students." More from this Member | Report Response

"It went by pretty fast. Someone walked into her office during the interview and she had to attend a phone call, so I'm guessing that's why it ended really early. She was really easy to talk to and the interview was conversational." More from this Member | Report Response

"OVERALL, MY EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT, INTERVEIWER WAS VERY LAID BACK. JUST WANTED TO GET DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY ON MY APPLICATION AND ANY QUESTIONS THE COMMITTEE MIGHT HAVE. I WAS PLEASED TO FIND OUT THAT UCINN OFFERS ABOUT 350-390 ACCEPTANCES TO FILL 160 SLOTS AND TYPICALLY INTERVIEWS ABOUT 600 STUDENTS. THAT MEANS IF YOU INTERVIEW YOU ODDS ARE OVER 50% FOR GETTING AN ACCEPTANCE. PROBABLY BETTER THAN THAT IF YOUR IN STATE. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. Of all the schools I've been to, this one impressed me the most, despite all the construction. The students were happy to be there and did things together outside of class. They have 98-99% pass rate on the first time boards. The US average is about 90-94%. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything went alright except for the actual interview. My interviewer didn't seem to really care. The interview only lasted about 15 minutes, and she took a few during the interview. She was an interesting person, but I just didn't get the sense that it meant much. Anyways, everything else went well, and I got a good look at the great medical school there. I was lucky enough to get accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was very friendly. Many students in the halls greeted us and wished us luck. My interviewer really didn't really ask any tough questions.

Nevertheless, he was friendly and attentive most of the time. The lunch was pretty early (10:30 AM), and the presentations were nice. Even though I didn't think I did too well, I got accepted about a week and a half later.

Then we got a tour by 2nd year medical students. Finally I had my interview with a professor in his office. My interview time was changed, and I didnt find out until 1:25pm. My interview was actually interrupted several times by phone calls which my interviewer had to answer, but it was because of personal issues that needed to be addressed immediately. I was not bothered by the interuptions once he explained why he was allowing them to occur." More from this Member | Report Response

My interviewer pretty much asked about stuff from my app. He also took me through some ethical scenarios...but I know where I stand on certain issues and am not afraid to say so.

But my interview was much more a conversation (which focused a lot on healthcare policy/ethics); still I learned a lot from the interviewer--very cool guy!

"My interviewer was really nice and the interview was fairly laid back. I didn't feel that my interviewer was prepared for the interview--it didn't seem like he read over my application beforehand. In some ways that was nice because I felt he got to know more about me talking with me than going over things that are already in my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour and interview all went rather normally. The people seemed friendly, and they have relatively new facilities for the medical students. The financial aid presentation however was very brief, and I couldn't make out what the woman was saying." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience. I went into the interview a bit nervous, but the guy who interviewed me was so nice and he just wanted to get to know me better. It was more of a conversation than an interview, which was great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was VERY laid back and ended up being like more of a conversation than a firing back and forth of questions and answers. I had a great time here and am seriously considering this school as a potential possibility. The children's hospital is great, so if you are considering Peds, this would be a great place to go. Dont stress... the interview was not stressful at all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very disorganized day with not much flow to it. There was a long presentation of the schools cirriculum to start the day, followed by a tour of the facilities. My interview followed, the origonal interviewer didn't show up, so I had a replacement who was a really nice doctor in patho over at Children's Hospital (great place for peds if you're interested). The day was not great, but my other impressions of UC Med have been wonderful outside of the interview day. I live in Cincy and really ahve had positive experiences with it in the past."

"good experience. do not be nervous about this at all... do not lose sleep over it... it is a welcoming atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"I get really nervous about things like this, but all butterfiles left after the first 5 minutes. They make you feel really comfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"VERY IMPRESSED. students there seem to really enjoy the school, academically and socially." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had my interview in the afternoon, after the information session, but most everyone else went in the morning. Admsissions people gave presentations on curriculum and financial aid and all that stuff. We then broke up into two groups and a second year student showed us around." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just to correct something from my earlier interview feedback, UC does in fact have wireless internet access...the tour guides just didn't know about it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was not ready for the interview. She started to look at my file when we started to interview. But she was a very nice lady and didn't ask any difficult questions. I was impressed with UC by their curriculum and their clinical lab. So far the best state school I have seen. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I just wanted to let people know that everything you do during an interview is being judged. One student brought his dad along! When checking in for the interviews the two students ahead of me did not even thank the person for directing them to their interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, a pleasant interview experience. My interviewer was very open and friendly, and readily invited questions that I had concerning the program." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was basically him telling me his background, then me telling him my life story starting with high school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Went very well, this site prepared me good, be ready for ethics questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"I withdrew my application shortly after my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great interviewer and she explained a lot about the school. She also was a very nice person and didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall it was a great experience. This was my first interview and my interviewer immediately put me at ease. We ended up talking for 75 min and he just wanted to clarify some things on my application and the usual...get to know me better as a person. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent facilities, location and education. Don't be fooled by the area you SEE when you interview - yes, it's somewhat blighted. BUT the neighborhood behind the school (Clifton GAS LIGHT District) is as charming and highclass as Cincinnati gets!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience was GREAT. The students were great in showing us what the program was about. They gave us plenty of chances to ask questions about school, life, fun stuff. After the interviews, the students took us out for a night on the town. It was fun. It was the first interview that I had the chance to get down and boogie on the dance floor with some of the students!! (i hope dancing ability isn't part of the admission evaluations)But the program is strong, and the research here is very well funded. Facilities are nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"I interviewed with an very nice Ph.D. It was more of a conversation and she was very interested in my experiences during my year off, my family, and my interests outside of medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was only stressed out because this was my first interview. However, my interviewer put me at ease and just wanted to get to know me as a person and my motivations for pursuing a career in medicine. I stressed out after the interview--but received an acceptance approximately 4 weeks later, so everything must have gone alright!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very nervous because it was my first interview but there was really no reason to be. My interviewer was very easy to talk to and he never formally asked me questions. We basically had a nice conversation that lasted well over 1.5 hours. It felt like talking to an old friend. The students seem to really like the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was very concerned about making sure prospective applicants know what they're getting into when they've chosen to pursue a career as a doctor. She had also read my application and said she was "trying to anticipate questions the admissions committee might have" so she could address them in her report to help me out; no idea if the other interviewers put as much thought into it, but it was nice. Lunch wasn't any good; make sure you eat breakfast. They definitely had a lot of elements I wish other schools I liked more had, but I was just simply not impressed by the students I met and the other kids there interviewing." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was in the morning before the presentation and tour, but some people had afternoon interviews. My interviewer had my application in front of her and basically made many comments about it, mostly about my classes and a few of my activities. I was not asked any ethics or health care questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was good, I was late due to a traffic jam and my interviewer was nice enough to give me 35 more minutes to relax and get breakfast." More from this Member | Report Response

"The information sessions and tours were awesome. However, I was not impressed that my interviewer let a fellow colleague sit in on our conversation (as if I wasn't nervous enough already). Also, our interview was shorter than it was supposed to be and I felt pressured to stop asking questions of my interviewers about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"my interview was fine, although i have a long standing personal bias against cincinnati as a city and couldn't shake it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I could even say I enjoyed the interview, because the information session was very helpful and the students were very friendly. The interview was also very laid back even though difficult questions were asked, basically they're there just to learn about you." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was honestly laid back. My interviewer was really nice and in a great mood. He seemed to be searching for questions to ask. After about 35-40 min. the interview was pretty much over and he asked me what I thought about the program and seemed to be highlighting the positives." More from this Member | Report Response

"The actual interview part is stressful, know your stuff especially your application! They will comment on your essays, grades, etc. As well as you knowledge of the world of medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was one of the best interviews I had. I got along really well with my interviewer and we talked about everything under the sun . I'm sure that if I went to this school I would enjoy my four yeas of medical education. I am officially not using US News rankings in my decisions anymore - from facilities to people, I was more impressed here than at other "better" schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities at the University of Cincinnati are great. There are something like 5 hospitals in a mile radius. Not only that, but they are world renown for their research and treatments. The interview was a little more difficult than others because they probed into your motivation and willingness to sacrific a great deal. The morning consisted of lunch and an overview of the medical school setup. They where very nice, but at the same time rather distant. The interview was with a non-clinical faculty member, but others in the group did have practicing physicians. Overall they where rather impressive in regards to research and facilites as well as the general feeling of the campus. Good school, moderatly difficult interview."

"Honestly I can't think of any improvements you could make to the interview day. It took slightly longer to hear back than what we were told but that's how things go sometimes so it wasn't a big deal. Also make sure you tell people that there is a key chain and a piece of paper inside the water bottles; several other applicants and I put water in them without looking and ended up with a paper and metal slushie."
