What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"So far so good. Keep using email to update people. Although I think phone calls to those who are accepted is a nice personal touch, so keep doing that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Compared to the other schools I have applied to, the interview was much more high stress and cold. I understand that it is unnecessary to ask behavioral based questions but I think the process could have been friendlier. It is very reassuring a huge selling point when the school seems friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would have liked a tour of the Raptor Center, but overall the interview was really nicely planned out." More from this Member | Report Response

"Free parking for out-of-state applicants who took the time to travel to Minnesota." More from this Member | Report Response

"Adjust the schedule so that folks who have the 'right after lunch' interview slot aren't trying to fit the tour and lunch both into one hour. I didn't want to eat because I didn't really want to rush from eating into the interview with lettuce stuck between my teeth. :) (That said, I skipped lunch and after my interview someone from admissions saw me headed out and stopped me and asked if I had had a chance to eat; so they took care of the problem!)." More from this Member | Report Response

"E-mail admissions notifications would be better, but I understand the need to send out official forms with the letters." More from this Member | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
