Things feel personalized, and the students seem , helpful, and enthusiastic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was incredibly friendly all day. The entire affair was non-stressful. The interviews themselves were just conversations about me and my activities that I had listed on the AMCAS. Nobody grilled me about anything and the staff were very helpful as well. The medical campus is expanding and the university seems to take really good care of its students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The enthusiasm of all the students I met. Of all the places I ended up interviewing, none of them were happier or friendlier than those at Michigan. The same could be said of the admissions faculty and the two doctors with whom I interviewed. Also the flexibility of taking quizzes anytime between Friday afternoon and Monday morning is very appealing. Straight P/F classes for 2 years. Med students at U-M have a life outside the classroom." More from this Member | Report Response

"Incredible facilities and program. Faculty seemed very committed to students and to the system in place. GREAT admissions staff and very user-friendly admissions process." More from this Member | Report Response

Also, the people were friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the staff and students. The students were very enthusiastic about the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone at the school was very nice and the interviewers were laid back. No one tried to make the day stressful. U. Michigan seems to truly care about student feedback, and as a result their unique program has details, such as the flex quizzes, that allow students to adjust their schedule and have a life outside of medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly and enthusiastic everyone was, and that I was taken care of very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was so friendly and the facilities were absolutely amazing" More from this Member | Report Response

"friendly students and overall enthusiasm. opportunities for study abroad. financial aid opps." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students really seemed to like the pass/fail system for the first two years. It eliminates competition, and it hasn't negatively affected the school's pass rate for the Step 1 USMLE. In fact, U of Mich's average score for Step 1 is two standard deviations above the national average, so the students definitely aren't slacking off because of the pass/fail grading. Also, all the lectures are video taped, so you can access them if you missed anything or if you missed a lecture. It allows for lots of flexibility. Finally, during the tour we got to go into an anatomy lab for about 15 minutes and watch the students dissect the posterior leg. It was very cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"1st year students took me and other prospectives out to a bar and we had a really good time. The people were very very friendly, more so than other medical schools that claim they are friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"How happy everybody was, the technology available to students, the facilities, just about everything!" More from this Member | Report Response

"All my interviewers were very fun to talk to. Admissions staff was very helpful. Liked level of internet integration in curriculum. Also P/F grading for first two years, and powerpoints and lecture videos online. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are SO friendly and it is extremely clear that they balance very strong academic skills with vibrant social lives (I went to a party with some M1s so I got to experience it first hand). Also, the interviewers and administrators make you feel very welcome. Ann Arbor is pretty awesome (I thought so coming from Charlottesville, VA) and the medical center is HUGE (looks like a fortress or something)!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything. This school has anything you need to excel in medical school and become a great physician." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is huge but easy to navigate. The facilities is very new and modernized. The students and admission office staff were so welcoming and very friendly. I enjoyed meeting everyone and getting a feel for the student life at UMICH. Everything is laid back and the interviews are stress free." More from this Member | Report Response

"Flex time, Students enthusiastic, very well organized, facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the admissions office (it's immediately in front of you as you enter the building); the admissions staff (they escort you from the second you enter the building and through out the day so you don't have to worry about getting lost); the friendliness of the interviewers (they were very conversational and easy to befriend)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone seemed very happy with the school and the students appeared to really enjoy going to school there. The interviewers were also down to earth and interested in what you do that is not medically related. It is nice to see admissions staff that value keeping your life well balanced between school and everything else." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything!" More from this Member | Report Response

"UMich is SO technically savvy and the admissions process is truly geared towards making your day easy! The faculty (interviewers) are so accomplished but so accessible. Students are in love with their school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Curriculum, facilities, students and faculty." More from this Member | Report Response

"You'll hear this again and again, but FRIENDLINESS of the admissions people, the students, and interviewees was awesome. They must put something in the Midwest water. The hospital is HUGE - it has 4 helopads for helicopters to land." More from this Member | Report Response

"Of all the schools I visited, Michigan had the nicest faculty and students. They really seem to recruit not only bright students, but good people. " More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly and happy everyone was. The technology they had to aid students. The fact that the interviewers treated me as an equal rather than being condescending, and they definetly had the best food of any of my interviews" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great electronic resources" More from this Member | Report Response

"Michigan has state-of-the-art technology, fantastic research and clinical opportunities, and a warm, diverse student body. Ann Arbor is a nice town, and the classes are all P/F for the first two years. (This is a new change made since the MSAR was printed; it used to be just the first year that was P/F.) Merit-based scholarships are awarded to some students. (You don't have to apply for them because you're automatically considered.) The entire hospital is wireless, and you never have to go outside to go from building to building, which is good in Michigan!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The caliber of both current and prospective students, that they're ranked #3 by residency directors, the friendliness of all the admissions staff--even the dean, that you're given a free PDA for keeps along w/ 1 yr free subscription to ePocrates, " More from this Member | Report Response

"All of the students were really enthusiastic about the school, the facilities are amazing, great career development oppurtunities early on. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The friendliness of the students and how laid back everyone was. one faculty interviewer specifically pointed out that faculty focus on helping students because they're paid through a salary, not through grants that they need to earn. U Mich apparently introduced "plasticizing" of body parts (the method that creates the figures for Body Works.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was obvious that Michigan cared a lot about the students and they all seemed happy and enthusiastic about their education. I like that they intentionally have large (40+) groups of interviewees in at once so that you have a chance to meet a lot of people who might end up as your classmates. Details of the exceptional preparation student's receive during their 3rd year were impressive. The 45 minute interactive presentation on their medical education technology was also impressive. I like the FCE and Medbuddies programs a lot too. The quality of achievement, character, & personality of my fellow interviewees was impressive! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The integration of technology into the curriculum to assit the students with their studies (online recorded lectures, PDAs, online quizes and exams). The facilities were modern. The students seemed extremely happy with their education. The interview day was perfectly structured so the interviews were conducted in the same area and were back to back. By lunch time the admissions stuff was over and the rest of the day was spent with students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty much everything. One of my interviewers stressed that U of M really keeps the "triangle" of research, patient care, and teaching "equilateral." I found this analogy to epitomize the U of M experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just how much of an effort is put into making you feel like they are recruiting you personally, the enthusiasm of the students, the desire to excel among the faculty and administrators, the fact that they are 3rd on the Residency Directors Preference List, the flexibility of the schedule, the use of technology" More from this Member | Report Response

"The weekly flex-time quizzes are a very good idea... seems like they would help a lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"How structured the entire day was, the amazing use of technology, the caliber of students being interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything about Michigan is wonderful. They make you feel like you will be a part of the medical school community and they will try their hardest to ensure you succeed there. The technology is also top notch. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were incredible, but not as incredible as the curriculum. I'm a procrastinator, so I think the weekly quizzes with the flex time would really work well for me (and anyone else with a similar problem). The students were all really cool and the learning environment wasn't competitive at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything - the admissions staff is very friendly and I felt like they had taken the time to get to know my application, the facilities are amazing and the new construction should make the health center world-class. My interviewers really knew my app and were genuinely interested in talking to me. They all loved the school and made me really want to go here. The faculty seems very responsive to student feedback. I really like the technology (flex-time quizzes and tests - take them online from Friday 5 PM till Monday 8 AM, PDAs for 3rd years, online clinical skills simulator for practice)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, everything about the school impressed me! I absolutely loved it. The facilities. The intense devotion to wolverine football. The interviewers who were extremely nice and down to earth. The admissions committee who were on top of their game. The current students who were all high caliber students. The other applicants. The school's committment to diversity (not just racially). The huge hospital! Flex time--def. ask about this! " More from this Member | Report Response

"SO MUCH! Everyone is mad friendly, the school has great facilities, the curriculum is flexible, and they seem to treat their students really well--this was all evidenced by everything from the well-equipped student lounge to allowing students to choose anytime between Friday afternoon and Monday morning to take their quizzes and tests. People seemed really down-to-earth and unpretetnious. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty treated me well. I felt as if I was wanted. The campus was beautiful and the school is ranked high. The school funded the visit (MSTP only)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The professional air of interview day at UMich was amazing. UMich holds interviews only once a week, so although the interview group is immense (about 40 people were interviewing with me), UMich is better able to concentrate its resources to make a glossier and more powerful presentation. My interviews were with 2 faculty members and 1 third-year medical student. All three interviewers were engaging, friendly, and obviously interested in my application and in representing me before the admissions committee. Their questions were both challenging and interesting. The rest of interview day was just as good--we got a full introduction to UMich's campus, reputation, and curriculum; a group Q&A with a roomful of friendly current medical students; a full tour--even the financial aid info session was more detailed and helpful than those at other schools I've been to. Perhaps best of all: I received a notice of acceptance to UMich not a week after my interview date. Very, very impressive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very organized and professional. Technologically advanced. Great school and cool city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Even being an undergrad here, I didn't quite realize how nice the facilities are. The school is ranked in more lists and publications then I have ever heard of, including some VERY impressive ones (Residency Directors Ranking = #2). All the students were really nice, and you really got the feeling that they enjoyed being there- all very low stress. They were all very proud and happy about the fact that the curriculum at UM is very "customizable" to your preferences and lifestyle as a student. Ann Arbor is a great town. The flex-time testing program M1, as well as P/F M1 and possibly M2 are great features. Clinical time starts M1. Lots to be impressed by here." More from this Member | Report Response

"The dedication of UM to its students. The faculty seem available and enthusiastic about teaching. The students seemed like a tight group that was put together to be able to work with each other well. Also, UM's commitment to technology to improve health care and learning the medical sciences. And even though it was cold, windy, and rainy, Ann Arbor was still beautiful. Plus, I saw a great ice hockey game! " More from this Member | Report Response

"This is really a great school. I'm surprised that it doesn't have the same national recognition as some other schools that are ranked lower. Awesome technology integration, weekly quizzes during M1 (great for keeping procrastinators like me in check), organ-based curriculum, Ann Arbor is a great little college town."

The only thing they could complain about the school is parking; they loved their school. Ann Arbor is a cute town with lots of ethnic restaurants." More from this Member | Report Response

"The postive gut feeling that I had as soon as I stepped in the medical school. The friendliness of student body, staff, administration, and faculty members. The uniqueness of their admission process: the fact that at midnight of Oct 15 I found out that I was accepted. They held a chat session prior to my interview, which helped me prepare!"

"People were really nice and friendly. My interviewer was a specialist in the exact field I had expressed interest in in my application, so I thought it was either a really good coincidence, or the adcom had matched me with him beforehand. Everyone was relaxed and the admissions people were sure to make us feel at ease." More from this Member | Report Response

"University Hospital is a beatiful, state of the art facility, as are the other hospitals (children's, cancer/geriatric, outpatient facility); UM's reputation in the eye of residency directors; students themselves were great; the computers and technology integration into the curriculum - this is the most techno-happy school I've seen so far (even more so than Baylor in my opinion); Ann Arbor seemed like a great place to live and be a student" More from this Member | Report Response

Definitely seemed like a family atmosphere. Ann Arbor is probably the best college town in America during the summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is fabulous - the people were both intelligent and friendly. Perhaps the most diverse student body I saw in any of my interviews; there are students from a huge variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. I really can't say enough positive things about the place, and I sensed that others in my interview group felt the same." More from this Member | Report Response

"The intelligence of the students and faculty / the technology" More from this Member | Report Response

"The size of the entire hospital, which makes sense since it is freezing cold in ann arbor. The place was so clean and looked absolutely new. One thing that did stand out was the student's repeated emphasis that the professors are not that stressed out and therefore are more focused towards educating medical students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities seem great. The students seem positive and friendly. It seems to be a low stress/low competition type of environment. Ann Arbor seems like it would be a lot of fun." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were the coolest. My host in particular was a high-energy guy and this is the first school I've interviewed at where we hung out in a bar all night before the second day of interviews. The MD program has alot of cool features, such as quizzes that you can take any time over a weekend, taped lectures, and a fairly inexpensive and detailed student-run note taking service." More from this Member | Report Response

"How friendly and laid-back everyone was. The admissions people were joking around with us, and the students were very helpful.

"The tour at the end was poorly organized and did not meet the same caliber as the rest of the experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students said average class attendance is 50-60 out of 170. Many students don't even use microscopes because all the slides are available online (that's good from a technology/convenience standpoint, but I don't want my doc not knowing how to use a microscope)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Anatomy lab was crowded relative to other schools I had seen....but this is a very minor point." More from this Member | Report Response

"All positive! Michigan is awesome!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the wolverines... grrrr" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cold. Think Michigan/Ann Arbor would be a hard place for my significant other to find a job. Lack of electives for non-clinical studies. Really huge which is a + and a -. Didn't like how they sent a facebook of all the other interviewees--felt my privacy was not respected. Students only do half of the dissections in anatomy in groups of 3 (6 people to a cadaver). Students felt that the anatomy lab was taught exploratively and was not as structured." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's super cold!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students basically said that only about 30% of people ever went to class. It is nice that the online lectures make that possible but it doesn't seem like a great way to see your classmates" More from this Member | Report Response

"Some facilities are a little old, but thats ok" More from this Member | Report Response

"Bad tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"some of the buildings and lecture halls were outdated, but we only saw a few of them anyway. the tour was not very comprehensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. The school seems like a wonderful place to be. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The weekly flextime quizzes have to be taken at a computer on campus. The large class size: anatomy groups are split up so you only do 50% of the dissections. " More from this Member | Report Response

"None" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ann Arbor is a good college city, but I think I prefer bigger urban environments. The access to a diverse population of patients is not as great (which I guess is almost a given for a suburb). Some students were a little hesitant in their answer when I asked how they liked Michigan so far (Although many also immediately answered "I love it here!")." More from this Member | Report Response

"THe 3rd years said it was a little competative and people were a little cut throat in trying to impress attendings. THey didnt have any presentations specifically about dual degree programs. " More from this Member | Report Response

"cold. brrrrr" More from this Member | Report Response

"Ann Arbor is a great small town with spunk, but it is nevertheless a small town." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a single thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not a lot of pre-arranged options to do rotations outside the U of M health system (although there are opportunities to go abroad, and you can set up your own away rotation)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ann Arbor is kind of out there and even though it was 88 degrees out when I was there, it snows for 5 months out of the year" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really but parking is supposed to be bad" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, save for the cost of attendance as an out-of-state student." More from this Member | Report Response

"6 students per cadaver in gross anatomy...seems like a lot" More from this Member | Report Response

"One student mentioned that they didn't like the workout facilities at the school. We didn't get to see them but from the way they described them, it didn't sound great. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Though I only encountered a few of the students, it seems a little like the medical school version of a party school. Also, I sort of got the impression that the students felt a little arrogant about the fact that they go to ''The University of Michigan'', always toting the top rankings." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview group was very large, almost 50 prospective students. We were told they do this on purpose to show us how big the school really is." More from this Member | Report Response

"by the end of the second day, i was exhausted! lunch wasn't that great..." More from this Member | Report Response

"ann arbor. snow. lack of diversity in the area (not necessarily among med students though)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ann Arbor is kind of out of the way, i wonder about the amount of patients they get" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. I found out the the grading system is high honors, honors, or pass, so it sounds a lot like a grading system to me, just without A,B,C,... Still, the students didn't seem competitive." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING!" More from this Member | Report Response

"the parking situation is unfortunate, both at the hospital and throughout ann arbor" More from this Member | Report Response

"Tour was not very interesting. Students seemed less enthusiastic than another school I visited." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. There was a slight mix up with splitting people into two groups for the interviews, but it all went pretty smoothly anyway." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviwers had read the primary app but never brought up my research, but I guess there was only so much time" More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't really get to see the sun while I was there (apparently it is gray there a lot). Also, not every student gets to perform all the anatomy dissections (not sure if this is the norm at other schools though)." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pretty hot from walking all over the place--I guess that's not their fault though! But you do walk a lot so be prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking for visitors was too far away. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't think they did as great a job as they could have selling the school. I know that the school has electronic model patients for us to practice certain techniques, but we didn't get introduced to that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just having to be there when it's still dark outside...I lost my house keys in the cab because I couldn't see." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ann Arbor is an expensive place for a student to live, and the school does not permit OOS residents to gain state residency after the first year. The cost of the school is its biggest overall drawback, but they do award some grants and scholarships." More from this Member | Report Response

"For me, Ann Arbor is a small town and I kind of felt trapped--not sure I could live there for 4 years. Also, the schedule is really flexible, which for me is bad because I prefer more structure and solid deadlines." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of my interviewers clearly had not read over my file, but all of the other faculty and staff were extremely helpful and nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities were ok, kind of plain imo." More from this Member | Report Response

"It would be nice to have a map of the school and campus during the day and especially during the tour-I felt lost the entire time. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't really like the town or the medical school facilities. They were pretty run of the mill. Also, I never felt like I got an accurate picture of what the student body was like. I didn't get to interact with anyone who wasn't part of the admissions process." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was kind of long. The tour was done last and at that point I was fatigued." More from this Member | Report Response

"Staff and faculty are effusive with their praise about U of M and it seems a little suspicious. It's almost as if they have a inferiority complex. If you know you are good, you don't need to repeat it every 5 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was already pretty cold on the day of my interview (in September!), and it was especially cold the night before my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"not much - AA is a great town, but it's lacking in diversity (luckily, you can do some clinical rotations in Detroit if you want to), worried that because lectures are video-taped and put on the web that no one would come and it would be harder to interact w/ classmates" More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school is a maze, and nobody posts signs to help you figure out where you're going." More from this Member | Report Response

"school is big, 37k students. interview group is also huge, maybe 40 or 50 people, but they say they structure it that way" More from this Member | Report Response

"Might be a little too lecture-based for me. Also, the great push for online lectures, labs, quizzes, clinical observations, and chatting seems great, but I wonder if it also dehumanizes the experience somewhat..." More from this Member | Report Response

"some of the facilities are a little old, but there are 2 new buildings in the works" More from this Member | Report Response

"expensive out of state...and they don't have a whole lot of service opportunities." More from this Member | Report Response

"I'm from GA, so I won't lie....it's cold and that is something I'll have to make my peace with if I choose to go there. Oddly, I was the only southerner there, and out of ~20 girls, I was the only one wearing a skirt suit!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking isn't available, but it turned out fine. The Holiday Inn bus left us, make sure to let the hotel know when you are waiting for the van." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much -- perhaps the winter weather is a little daunting, especially for people like me who are used to the mild, snow-free winters of western California." More from this Member | Report Response

"They didn't have lunch organized well" More from this Member | Report Response

"The rankings were thrown in your face what felt like several hundred times throughout the day. I think everyone was fully aware before they got there that it is a great school. No real BIG negatives to the interview day or to the school in general." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really, this place has it all! i loved it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The med school seemed like a confusing maze of hallways, kind of intimidating" More from this Member | Report Response

"The one weakness is that the patient population is not very diverse in Ann Arbor, but UofM hospital is the major medical center for all of Michigan, so you will see a lot of different types of cases." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. My tour guide wasn't too enthusiastic about med school in general. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The administration is caught up in rankings. I heard some aspect of UM's US News ranking in this category or that about 10 times. It even showed up on this practice quiz they make you take during the computer facilities tour. I mean, everyone looked at US News before applying to UM, so they know its good, no need to indoctrinate it any further. That's my only complaint though, the school seemed really friendly and academically motivated overall. I couldn't find the match list in my packet for some reason either."

"I'm OOS and interviewed late in December, when they were starting to interview A LOT of in-state applicants.

"Nothing, I feel like I was pretty prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I should have prepared a little bit more, perhaps by practicing questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't understand the scheuduling of medical school, and didn't realize that there is only one summer vacation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview. I was surprised to find prospective students didn't seem overly friendly, beyond what was required for being on their best behavior. Maybe this was due to the element of competition, simply the stress of the day, or the fact that I was the only student from my school when many other students hung out in a group with their classmates. However, this feeling of false friendliness was NOT reflected in the medical students who attend U.Michigan." More from this Member | Report Response

"That U-M is so fast about making decisions after you interview. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have waited as long as I did to schedule an interview (it would have been nice to alleviate the whole "am I even going to get into school?" stress earlier than I did)." More from this Member | Report Response

"I talked to friends at UM and found out that the hospital, although connected to the parking garage, is a maze. They informed me to walk around outside to get to MSB1. I went with a friend the night before to scope it out... it was really helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"How competitive admissions is." More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

More from this Member | Report Response

"That Ann Arbor's streets are CRAZY! Everything is like a one-way street, which is fine if it's in a normal grid like NY or chicago, but all the streets curve and are on hills so it takes forever to get to where u need to go." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview and it was at my undergrad school...I wish I had realized how over-confident I was. I really was cocky and I think this had a hugely negative impact on my application. I deflated a lot after getting waitlisted, and went into future interviews much humbled, I think I performed better after this." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview at UM was the most extensive of all of the interviews I've done so far. There were two one-on-one interviews, one 45 minute with a faculty and one 30 minute with a medical student. After that there were six MMI stations. All of the interviewing occurred in the morning, and in the afternoon we got a tour and split into smaller groups to do fun med student activities. I thought the current students were a little lack-luster." More from this Member | Report Response

"The most well orchestrated (and most fun) interview day I've had" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall great day, however, it is a long day. By the time the tour came around I just felt like leaving and staring into space :p" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was an awesome experience. I never thought I would refer to an interview day as being fun but it was. Every person did their best to make the applicants feel at ease, so there's no reason to stress out about this interview. Make sure you know what is on your application and make sure you know the answer to the questions "Why medicine" and "why michigan" and as long as you know all of that you will be prepared for the interview. This is absolutely my #1 choice because of how much the interview day impressed me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview experience if you know your stuff. They only asked me one ethics question - almost everything came right off my application." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"One of my interviewers spoke for 90% of the interview. I felt like he had his mind made up before meeting me so he spent most of the time telling me how amazing the U of M is. I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewers were really friendly. I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of other interviewees. It detracted from getting to know the school I felt. The school seems to be really great but I just feel concerned about the job market in Michigan in terms of my partner being able to find a job." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was great. I am OOS, and feel like the cost is worth the education. The Dean and Director of Admissions were all straight forward-- After a short presenation/breakfast my group went to interview. I had three interviews, 30 minutes each. two were students and one was an MD. then we went back and had a presentation about the school's technology/computers. Lunch after that-presentation about financial aid(which there is plenty of!), and then a tour, which included the anatomy labs and looking at cadavers. We were done around 2pm.

"The interviews were all really laid back and conversational. The facilities are great, and the med students I met seemed pretty relaxed, which was all the more impressive considering that they all had an exam that day. After visiting, this school is definitely one of my top choices; to make things even better I found out 2 days after my interview that I was accepted!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"A very positive interview experience, and the school is incredible in residency placement as well as a fairly low stress atmosphere (for medical school)." More from this Member | Report Response

"My first interviewer was pretty typical. He just asked me about my activities, my research, and volunteering. It was really low-key. With my second interviewer it was like I couldn't say anything wrong. Everything I said he enthusiastically agreed with. With my third interviewer it was like I couldn't say anything right. Everything I said she was very critical of. So basically I got a completely different vibe from each of my interviewers. I had it a little bit weird though because I had 3 faculty interviews and most people get 2 faculty and 1 student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"U of M is a fantastic school. I am enamored with everything about it except a little bit about the location. Almost all if not all of its graduate programs are in the top 10, in case you want to pursue studies outside of medicine-- and a top public health school. It's ranked top 5 by residency directors. There are tons of global research opps. The city during games days is electric. And to top it off, they try to make your interview day relaxed and calm." More from this Member | Report Response

The three thirty minute interviews are in two shifts in the morning, they tell you who your interviewers are in the morning.

Breakfast and lunch are served, and students go in shifts- one group does their three interviews, boom boom boom, and the other group tours the computer labs and gets a financial aid seminar. After everyone finishes their interviews, the admissions committee leaves, and med students come and chill with applicants, answer questions, and take you on a tour. The day ends early, and is full but energizing, and people seem really happy and down to earth. They all say they're fed well by the school." More from this Member | Report Response

Went out to dinner with MSTP students and stayed overnight with an M1 MSTP student. Friday I joined the Medical School applicants for the day.

There were three one on one interviews; I had one M3 and 2 MD interviews, but some people were interviewed by 2 med students and one professor. Then it was lunch time with the current students. Quite a few came, and the admissions staff all left the room so you could talk candidly. Then there were student led tours of the facilities. Be prepared for lots of walking! At the end, you fill out evaluations of your interviewers and the entire day while getting more snacks and pie. Overall, I was extremely impressed with UM.

"My mother and I drove in the night before and stayed at a hotel. The interview day started at 7:30 with breakfast, followed by an introduction and admissions talk that went over the attributes of the school and the application/admission process. Then, the applicants were split into two groups. My group had the computing and financial aid talks while the other group had their interviews. The talks were very helpful and informative. Then we had a half-hour break that gave us a chance to talk some more to each other. After that, we had the interviews and the other group had the talks. There were three interviews, one right after the other. They were conducted by faculty members and students (and in one case an alum). The students carry as much weight as the faculty, so some people had two faculty and one student interview, while others had two student and one faculty interview. I was in the former situation. The interviewers have a picture of us so they came out and found us in the waiting room. The interviews were conducted in the rooms used for Stimulated Patient Exams, so it looked kind of like a doctor's office. My first interviewer was a faculty member and he was very welcoming and nice, and put me at ease. We pretty much just had a conversation, with him using my application to guide us through and make sure we covered everything. It didn't really feel like an interview, if anything he was convincing me why I would love UMich and Ann Arbor. The second interview was pretty much the same. The more difficult one ofr me was the student interview. She was an M2 and just went through her list of questions - what were your leadership roles? I see you were involved in this organization, what did that entail? What do you do for fun? Tell me about your research, etc. It wasn't really difficult, just caught me by surprise after the two other interviews that were totally different. Overall, I enjoyed all of them though and learned a lot about the school and feel like the interviewers learned a lot about me. After the interviews were over, we had lunch with students and they gave us a chance to ask questions, and just talk to them. Then some of the students took groups of us on the tour, which was fun and gave me a pretty good feel of the school. After that, we went back to the admissions office and filled out evaluation forms, ate pie and left." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience at Michigan. All the admissions people were very friendly. Interviews were all conversational and interviewers were all receptive to what I was saying. Facilities are pretty good -- they use the newest technology and keep all the buildings (hospitals and med school bldgs) updated. Technology is very well integrated into the curriculum -- all lectures (at least for M1) are videotaped and posted on the web to watch and a PDA with useful software is given to you in M3 year. Michigan has both M1 and M2 pass or fail and the best part is they don't rank students for these 2 years. While some schools have a similar system, they secretly rank students and give that information to residency directors. Umich has no such policy. The students seemed enthusiastic about the school. In general, I had a great time and hopefully if I get in, I will seriously consider going there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had heard from everyone that the interviews were really "chill," but I was still a little tense. They let you interact with the other interviewees pretty extensively, which takes the edge off considerably because everyone is so friendly and open and talkative. I wouldn't even call the interviews "interviews." It was like we started a conversation as we were walking toward the interview room, and we never stopped chatting, and before you know it, 30 minutes are up. Overall, it was just a very relaxed and friendly environment...I had a blast. AND they feed you chocolate eclairs for breakfast...what more can you ask for?

There are about 40 interviewees per day, so you really get a chance to meet prospective classmates. There are two groups of 20. The first group has interviews first from 8:30-10 and then the rest of the day is for learning about student resources (computer labs, lounges, library services) and financial aid session. The second group has their interviews after the workshops from 10:30-12. Afterwards we break for lunch and then separate into smaller groups to tour the school as well as the main hospital.

The admissions office takes good care of you throughout the day--breakfast and lunch are provided, and they make sure you know where you are and where you're going. They're also very fast and responsive...I found out two days after interviewing that I was accepted :) This school is DEFINITELY in my "top three" and there is a very good chance I would come here. The only thing that might stop me is that if I'm going to be somewhere cold, I don't really want to need a car (I don't really know how to drive in snow/ice or maintain a car in such conditions!) and Ann Arbor probably won't be the best place for that....but we'll see.

Take the opportunity to talk to students in all four years - I had the chance to talk to a third year student. He didn't say much about the third year, but I got the sense that it is stressful. Also, students claimed that the second year grading system didn't breed competitiveness and that the weekly quizzes were a good thing.

"The school is very spirited and everyone claims that there is a lot to do at Ann Arbor." More from this Member | Report Response

"i'm also a current student who mostly agrees with the previous evaluation. be sure to ask about grading policies and grade distributions during the 3rd and 4th years at this school as well as other schools. if 3rd and 4th years don't tell you the ugly truth about getting honors, then i wouldn't trust anything those students have to say (some of the 1st & 2nd years may just be ignorant of it). applicants seem to get hung up on rankings and 1st & 2nd year grades, but neglect to drill the schools on their clinical grades. michigan has grade-deflation - not a good thing for residency placement. very few receive anything above "pass." the faculty / administration tells you with >>pride<< toward the end of the 2nd year that a clinical grade of "pass" is considered an honor and that they reserve "honors" for only the most extraordinarily spectacular students. i guarantee that residency directors don't have the same opinion on this matter when they have the luxury of considering many candidates with transcripts full of honors. while michigan may still place some great students in great residency spots, it's mostly because those great students worked themselves to death to get top clinical grades and very, very high board scores. med school is hard enough without also having to work against your school's own policies."

"A long two-day interview (11+ total interviews). Three purely medical school interviews, an interview with the MSTP director and three interviews with members of the Operating Committee (including one student). I was exhausted and sick of talking but the experience was great. The faculty and students were great. The town seemed really fun and live-able." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"A pleasant series of 3 interviews. Open-file, interviewers were familiar with aspects of it (weren't seeing them for the first time), large group of interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewers were extremely nice and the interview was very conversational. They mostly just want to get to know you. Read over your AMCAS and your secondary application- know your activities and research. Wear comfortable shoes because the tour is quite extensive. If you can, try to explore Ann Arbor to see if you feel like you can spend four years there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience. All of my interviewers were kind and considerate. The tenor of the interviews themselves was conversational; in fact, one of my interviewers spent five minutes talking about how Ann Arborites and Austinites (I live in Austin) deal with snow. The facilities and curriculum are outstanding. The students are cool. Best of all, I was accepted within 48 hours. So it looks like I'm gonna be at UM Medical School next year!

"It was very very low stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"I liked the school. the students were very friendly, and it's a great education. you can see the caliber of the school from the presentations and the students. my interviews were very stress-free, although having 3 back to back can be a bit tiring. i was also really hungry the whole day so that sort of tired me out. get sleep before. it's cold, so dress warmly! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very nice interviewers. Very conversational!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were three interviews of about a half hour each. I didn't get any tough ethical questions or anything like that. All the questions focused on my application or me as a person. Surprisingly, the interview with the student was probably the roughest for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews consist of three 30 minute interviews, usually done back to back. Things were very conversational and relaxed. We also were given a financial aid presentation and a computer demonstration." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is no reason to stress out. While I am sure others got tougher questions than me, I dont think that anyone walked out of the interview feeling totally dejected. Just exude confidence and know that you've gotten this far- thats great in itself. Be sure to be courteous. But to summarize, understand that any stress you may feel is of your own making. they seem to try to make it as stress free as possible. Also, this was my first interview. It is a great place to interview at first simply because of the lax atmosphere there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a very solid school overall. They don't do any one thing to knock your socks off, but when you look at the entire package they clearly are a top-tier school. Facilities, students, curriculum - all look very good. The admissions staff is very friendly and straightforward about what will happen after the interview. The interviewers seemed much more interested in just seeing how I communicate and think rather than grill me with stupid questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was nice. It was my first interview, and they made me feel reasonably comfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"i guess i was a little surprised by my interviews because i had heard that they were really chill and they asked almost no moral or ethical questions, and i found that that was definitely not the case at my interviews. i think as long as you know why you want to do medicine and stay on top of current issues in medicine, you'll be fine. also, remember to always be yourself at the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"It started very early in the morning. We had a continental breakfast. Then a speech by someone from the admissions office, then we split up into several groups. Half the people went to interviews. The other half went to a computer presentation and a financial aid session. Then we switched. The 3 interviews in a row was kinda tough. My first two were very conversational and friendly. My last one had a lot of tough ethics and diversity questions. Many people had at least one student interviewer, but I didn't. The computer presentation was okay. Kinda boring, but neat to see how well they use technology. The financial aid session was depressing as usual. Lunch was catered and attracted a horde of poor, hungry med students who were glad to answer our questions. They all were very friendly and seemed very happy there. Then we went on a tour. They have top notch facilities. I loved the student lounge, although the big screen TV and foosball table might not be conducive to studying. And that was it. Right now this is my No. 1 choice (of the 3 schools I've interviewed at)." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"Overall it was a good day. We started off with an intro speech by the asst dean and thenwent on to a computer presentation and a financial aid presentation. The interviewers were really nice but it was hard to judge whether they liked what they were hearing or they were just nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good day. Long. Pick a good tour guide and ask them anything you want- they really are not on the committee and don't mind random qs like "how many students date students?" etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very positive. U of M was very impressive, and that's tough for me to say b/c I go to Notre Dame and I'm from Columbus, Ohio!" More from this Member | Report Response

"U of M is definetly my top choice now that I have been there. The school totally takes care of its students in any way that it can. The admissions office was great, so were the interviewers, and the students there. They do everything to make you feel comfortable during it. I'd arrive a little early, 'cause parking can be bad, I was 15 minutes early and there were already about 8 people there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"this school rocks, i'll probably attend if i'm accepted.. interviews are laid back (just like every other entries have noted)...so relax" More from this Member | Report Response

"This interview was an awesome experience. Overall, it was a relaxed environment and a great time. Going into the interview, I was not as excited about University of Michigan as I am about other schools. However, the faculty and students are all down to earth and genuine. The facilities are equally impressive. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had two faculty interviews and one student interviewer. They were all really nice and friendly and tried to make me feel more comfortable. Having lunch with the students was the best part of the experience because they were really helpful in honestly answering questions and giving you a sense of what their school is like." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview definitely pushed UM up the list of schools I want to attend, its a fantastic school with great resources and faculty. The cost and the weather, in that order, are the only things that are worrisome about the school. Everything else seems top notch. I think UM is a great place to get a medical education. Also, it seems like a lot of Cali students go there, so there might be something to that for Cali applicants trying to find some out of state alternatives. But definitely check the place out if you get an interview, its extremely friendly and a beautiful place. It is for sure in the upper eschelon of medical schools from what I have seen. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Of all the schools I interviewed at, including other highly-ranked ones, UMich has by far the best facilities and best atmosphere. The buildings were modern, clean, attractive. The people were impressive and friendly. The curriculum is great, and it's only getting better with the changes that were made for next year. UMich is an amazing place. I hope I am accepted - I would definitely attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"Hard interviews with hard questions. It was anounced at the beginning that these interviews were just to get you on a waitlist...all the places are filled, but may open up if students go elsewhere" More from this Member | Report Response

"For all of you who want to interview on another day besides friday don't. According to the students they have fun on fridays. Don't be nervous because there are three interviews scheduled, just think there are three opportunities to demonstrate how good you really are, so if you screw up on the first interview there are two more in which you can make it up. The staff are quite helpful, so be really super nice to them. Overall I would say that the school was quite impressive, leaving the hospital I thought gees its almost as if the difficult question for me is why shouldn't I go to this school its an awesome place. The fascilities and anything else you want are there for medical students and that is a fact. So a comfortable life you can expect at Ann Arbor if you dare take the challenge. For all of you who are nervous get over it, for all of you who are relaxed then you have it made, hey you are there for a reason so enjoy." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were very laid back and not intense. I definitely got the sense that they asked very thoughtful questions just trying to get to know me better. The day seemed organized pretty well and was overall a good experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"Michigan is a very well-rounded school, in the fact that it is considered a top tier school, but isn't as competitive and stuffy as some other well-respected medical schools. In addition, the campus is money and students are cool. I even got accepted the same day! If you have your interview at Michigan tomorrow, stop reading this, get a good map, go to bed, and be ready to enjoy your time in Ann Arbor. Good Luck. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was ALOT of interviews. A previous feedback said 12 interviews, and while I didn't count mine, that seems about right. They claim that all 12 of these interviews are weighted equally, however the interview with the director was an hour long and I bet that was the most important one. The director is a fairly low-key guy, and I get the impression that he's not a particularly powerful figure, as some MSTP directors are. Their spin on this is that the student becomes a "full member" of the department they join... Ok, fine. There was one student interview for the MSTP program, a whole bunch of researchers that you pick and they try to match you up with, and there was three faculty interviews for the MD program, which were pretty low stress. Two of my MD/PhD interviewers gave me a hard time, but it wasn't that bad and I hear they do this to everyone. It's a good school, the students are awesome (my love to RNAgirl), and I could see myself there next year." More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome time. Low Stress. Great School. Kick ass city." More from this Member | Report Response

"The process started at the crack of dawn; about 40 interviewees were herded together and then split into morning interviews and afternoon interviews. We watched presentations about the new curriculum, computers and IT, and financial aid. It was really great to see how many students showed up for the luncheon; they were excited to meet us and answered all of my questions. The tour was really thorough, showing us labs, classes, and the hospital (which is connected). I do, however, recommend finding the admissions office the day before (or going early) because the medical center is a little confusing and filled with one-way streets."

"UMich is pretty awesome. I went in thinking this school was not one of my top three choices, but left thinking this school is now my top choice!" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview so I was nervous, but everyone was so friendly that I really had a good time. I interviewed with two students and one MD. The students were very friendly and the MD just asked run of the mill questions about my application. They have a new curriculum starting next year that looks promising and their technology demonstration was impressive. There did not seem to be any animosity among the students and everyone seemed happy to be there. All in all a great day. Low stress and enjoyable." More from this Member | Report Response

"Three interviews seems intimidating, but they go y so quickly. The facilities are new, the electronic curriculum in snazzy, and everyone is nice and genuinely happy to be at Michigan. You'll have a good day and it ends early (2:30 pm!)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Really low-stress, nice friendly interviewers, gorgeous campus. Questions were really standard and generic, even though they had our files with them." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience, first class medical school" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved it. My interviews were laid back and extremely conversational. It would be nice if the interviews were longer, but they were long enough to get the job done I think." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good experience, low stress--actually wish the interviews were longer, didn't get to really get in-depth with anyone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great. I was very impressed, and having a virtually stress-free interview was great considering it was my first." More from this Member | Report Response

"Michigan rocks. We arrived at about 7:30 in the morning (6:30 Central time for me). After a quick presentation by one of the deans, half of the students (myself included) had 3 half-hour interviews while the other half went to a computer lab/technology interactive presentation and a financial aid session. My interviewers were extremely friendly and engaging, and the interviews were conversational and not at all stressful. Then the groups switched, and after everyone was interviewed we had lunch with some med students (M2-M4). They were very helpful and and honestly answered our questions. Then we took a tour of the school and hospital facilities - huge and very nice! I actually had fun at my interview - this was a great experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, good interviews, great office staff in the admissions office. Really interesting fellow interviewees. Didn't interact that much with students, I wish we had the opportunity to sit in an entire lecture instead of the 2 minutes we saw during the tour." More from this Member | Report Response
