Awesome facilities, with a "cathedral" OMM room and (supposedly) an amazing anatomy lab (we weren't allowed in, of course, but they showed us a little video of it).

"The students. I didn't hear one bad thing about UNECOM come from any of the students I meet. They all were upbeat and supportive of each other and the school. Atleast half a dozen first and second year students that were walking by stopped to shoot the breeze with the interviewees. It felt as though UNECOM is a very close nit community. One of the students that stopped by to say hi told me that last winter she had surgury on her shoulder and because she couldn't use her arm she couldn't shovel the snow off her car to go to class. A professor emailed her later that day to see how she was doing and when she told him that she wanted to come to class but couldn't shovel off her car, he said, 'No problem, where do you live?' He stopped by and cleaned her car off. She said that everyone at UNECOM is like that, students and professors. Also, UNECOM's OMM lab is awesome. It must of had 50 tables, well lit with natural light, very open, high ceilings. You don't get that feeling of 'old dingy medical school' (probably because the building was just built a few years ago). The gross anatomy lab, and the whole gross anatomy program for the matter, is stellar. Again, the lab was well lit with natural light, open, glass interior walls and not in some basement dungeon. UNECOM's gross anatomy program is number one in the country now, with the most hours of any other school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seem very happy and competition seems to be minimal. If you like rural ocean-front locales this is the place for you. Not remote but also not NYC." More from this Member | Report Response

"This question should requires way too much time to answer. I stayed with an excellent first year student (my host). He showed me everything the day before the interview. He invited a whole bunch of friends over and introduced me to about a dozen people. The students are really supportive of each other and only have good thing to say about the program the faculty and UNE. People seem down to earth and approachable... not fake or artificial. The students help each other big time. THe campus is stunning. At least for me since I love nature. The new medical school building is amazing. Very comfortable and open with light. OMM lab WOW. Will beat other OMM labs hands down." More from this Member | Report Response

"The incredible location, up to date facilities, the anatomy program being 2nd best in the country, friendly interviewers, helpful students, basically EVERYTHING! Feel free to ask the tour guides anything! They were very helpful and willing to answer any question you had. It was nice to have a first year as a tour guide because it was much easier to relate to a medical student who had only started 6 weeks prior, rather than someone who has been there for 2 years.

"Everything! I love the area. The building is amazing. The students are all very friendly and willing to help first year students. Our tour guides told us they hold sessions before anatomy tests and help you review. They stay until you understand everything. Not many other schools have that nice of students. Also, during OMM lab you get a new partner every week whereas other schools only switch once a semester. The anatomy course is the 2nd best program in the US with the most contact hours."

"The current med students are awesome... They are friendly and go out of their way to speak with potential students. The students seem genuinely happy there. The faculty and administration are warm and personable- probably among the nicest that I've had the pleasure of meeting. I think that there is P/F grading and that rank is not reported (not so sure so check on this when you go there), which lowers the competitiveness between students. The campus is gorgeous. Also, I've been to a lot of osteopathic medical schools and UNECOM definitely has the most beautiful OMM room ever! You can elect to do your core clinical rotations in a variety of regions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I stayed with a first year medical student the night before my interview, and she had a huge dinner prepared for me and had invited two other medical students over so that we could answer all of my questions. Her kindness and generosity impressed me. Also, although I flew up there during a snow storm, I could tell that the campus was beautiful. I was impressed by the Osteopathic Manipulation Lab, as well as the good ventilation of the Anatomy Lab." More from this Member | Report Response

I want to attend a medical school where you and your classmates work together to get through classes. From the converstation I had with the student, it seemed as though all of the students enjoy going here and all get along fairly well. Second years treat the first years very well and are willing to help a ton. After all, who better to assist those coming in than those who just did it?" More from this Member | Report Response

"The anatomy curriculum is one of the best with the most contact hours, second only to Kirskville, I believe it is. They have a terrific preceptorship program, as well.

"Honestly nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"rotations could be far. huge focus on OMM but they do very well in both USMLE and COMLEX; location is absolutely horrid and depressing just because its ME and full of old people. Also felt more like highschool/undergrad environment rather than med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location is very rural, but there's a really nice city (Portland) that is 30 min away that apparently has great foods & breweries." More from this Member | Report Response

"Undergraduates all over the place" More from this Member | Report Response

"Since I was one of the last ones to interview, it was hard to stay sociable for so long in the waiting area, since I suspected the med school tour guides might evaluate us too. If you need a break to check your phone, excuse yourself to go to the bathroom." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students mentioned snow days, I understand it is Maine where snow/ice are common occcurences but it was a little disheartening to hear snow days tossed around like it was a common occurence when we are paying for school" More from this Member | Report Response

"the cost, the fact that they have to share so many facilities with the undergraduate population" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were very small and intermingled with the undergrad students. Biddeford is very small and did not seem to offer much. As a student, you would stay at one place in your 3rd year." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the student guides wouldn't stop talking about himself. It got a little old. " More from this Member | Report Response

"the only negative is the price. but there are scholarships out there to be had." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students named their cadavers (I have a really hard time with that - they had names when they were alive, you don't need to give them a new one) and one of the student guides kept insisting the cadavers were stored in formaldehyde...pretty sure that's not true. At least I hope it's not. But I'm being picky, I was really impressed overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"You walk into the meeting hall and you are greeted by students in the lobby. And you end up sitting in the lobby, full of people walking in and out for most of the day. You are supposed to talk with current students, but half the time you can't even hear them because it's so loud. Do they really not have a quiet room for us to go to before the interviews? You are given access to this tiny cafeteria (anything you want), but every salad and or sandwich has meat in it. Come on, some of us are vegetarian. All other schools I interviewed at provided some non-meat options, but not UNECOM. I ended up getting potato chips and coffee and was really hungry after such "lunch." Perhaps UNECOM isn't vegetarian friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"Why aren't all the health professions on one campus? The DO program shares the Biddeford campus with the undergrads. The library was kind of pathetic (I like to study in libraries)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The library is tiny and seems like a middle school library." More from this Member | Report Response

"Being in the middle of somewhere in maine" More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost! And lack of abundance of scholarships available to students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I talked to first years who told me to go to a MD program if I got in because OMM doesn't work. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Location." More from this Member | Report Response

"We will have to move during 3rd and 4th year. Must set up own 4th year rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is a strong probability that you will have to move from year to year, as rentals often exclude summer months. Also, you have to set up some of your own 3rd and 4th year clerkships - and the others were probably going to be out of state." More from this Member | Report Response

"small gym :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location was a bit isolated and it was about 3 degrees outside." More from this Member | Report Response

"How small the campus is, undergrads and med students in the same building." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location. In the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The lack of public transportation, which creates a need for a car, since everything is far away from campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lottery system for rotations" More from this Member | Report Response

"No other applicants took up the free food offer but me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guide was enthusiastic, but it didn't seem like he knew a lot. He kind of ''restrained'' the tour a bit. While tour guides at a couple other schools were eager to bring us into any room they could to show us the facilities, we had to ask to go into lecture halls, etc. Interview seemed a little unorganized and the Dean of Admissions (whoever he was) did not seem very excited to be there that day (I think he had a cold)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That there isn't much around the town there." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was slightly stressful" More from this Member | Report Response

"Small library (little to no library space), and not much diversity in student body" More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like they were playing a "good cop/bad cop" scene with me as one interviwer was very engaging, the other shuffled papers and avoided eye contact when ever I opened my mouth to speak. That was a bit unnerving, so I pretended he had a socialization disorder and tried not to make him uncomfortable." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a pretty location on the Ocean but in a remote part of Maine. Biddeford is not pretty. Portland is very nice but about a 30-45min commute." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Some other applicants were using it as a fall back to MD programs, but most were really interested in osteopathic medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"Only that they are starting to interview more applicants for the same amount of spots." More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather, although that is not controlled by the university itself :) The only other thing I would say is that the second interviewer didn't really say or ask anything much at all. I guess thats okay though." More from this Member | Report Response

"The library was closed, but they said it was very small (but everything is on electronic journal). I come from a big city, so the area was pretty rural for me." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a lot of sitting around, but both the first and second year students were in test, so it was understandable. Plus, the interview was from noon to 4 and people were being interviewed the whole time. I was last, so I sat the most." More from this Member | Report Response

"How small the campus is." More from this Member | Report Response

"Small library but its very quiet" More from this Member | Report Response

"The process for the interviews in the morning was a little disorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is out in the middle of nowhere and everything in town closes early. It is very small town America - and there is very little diversity in both the town and the school. Also - the medical school building is shared with the undergraduates" More from this Member | Report Response

"The library is almost non-existant. Very (very) small with few paper resources. They do, however, have access to over 80,000 online journals." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of financial aid; there is a biomedical research facility in the works now, but the research labs in Stella Maris are antiquated. They really need the new facility for modern research to develop." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guides seemed to think that there was an animosity between the med students and the undergrads. I don't think this is anything that would bother me, plus I liked that they said this because it indicated that they were being very truthful with us, which is obviously a good thing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. Despite what some people have said about having to move out in the summer, I found that many students live there year round. Some students live right on the beach and have a year contract." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing...I even liked the snow storm" More from this Member | Report Response

"the snow" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour guides were very poorly dressed...the girl looked as if she didn't brush her hair and had no make-up on. All of the students were very poorly put together." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the gym was a little bit small, but that is the ONLY thing I can think of, which...is great. I loved it, I really did. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition is a bit high and the availability of year-round housing is a little scarce because of the tourists in the summer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much...UNE seems like a superb medical school and there appears to be a little research going on, however I may be looking for a school that can provide more research experiences. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All of your courses are in the same building, which I imagine can get boring after a while." More from this Member | Report Response

"Limited places to eat. It seems like housing may be difficult to find. There was a long waiting period during the interview process (however, that seems to be the trend everywhere). " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was told by a friend that the Dean was not good at his job and really needed to leave!" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, really. Some of the undergrads walking around seemed snotty, but that isn't a detractor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing negative. I saw some people complain about a long wait to interview. The wait is not bad and we were accompanied by first and second year students who talked to us about their experiences." More from this Member | Report Response

"there's no stores around, there's nothing to do outside of school" More from this Member | Report Response

"location: the school is in an area that is a little too rural and 'new englandish' for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"small isolated campus... but right by the ocean. about an hour of waiting before interview." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"It was a saturday, so not many students around...that, and the housing situation (off-campus, summer prices, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"As some people have said, there was alot of 'waiting around' time. If you chose to just sit there I'm sure it would be boring, but if you are social and curious, you'll have plenty of people to fill in time with. The process could have been better planned though, it needed more structure. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The residencies available were not very clear. You may not get to choose." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really...it's very expensive though" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews and tour was conducted simultaneously, therefore some interviewees missed parts of the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was not well organized. They should be more professional in their presentations about the school. It seemed that the staff didn't devote much time to it at all. Also, my interviewer talked about his personal opinions instead of asking me what I thought. I found that very frustrating since he is suppose to get to know me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"One of their deans Pat Kelley acted rude and condescending to us. The students didn't appear to like the administration or program much. They start in July. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The unspoken animosity existing between the med students and the undergrads with whom they share a campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Absolutely nothing!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"High cost of tuition, not allowed to see anatomy lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing negatively impressed me during the visit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Parking tickets." More from this Member | Report Response

"Although the school is right on the beach, the area around it is not very developed at all. The closest restaurant is 20-30 mins away." More from this Member | Report Response

"None." More from this Member | Report Response

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

"library is inadequate, $$$$$$$$$ (MS1 FAP=$55,000)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Unfortunately, I think that the interviewers were running behind schedule so they had to read my file while I was sitting right in front of them. It's ok though. They let me ask tons of questions and they were super nice to me during the interview. Trust me, the questions that they asked weren't that difficult to handle, even the ones that I mentioned as the most interesting/difficult. Also, I was interested in research and my interviewers did not have a lot of information on UNECOM's current research activities, although the school boasts their research in the slide show that they show interviewees. Also, although the snow was pretty, we all felt a taste of the New England Winter's wrath!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I definitely got a taste of New England weather during my stay! Every flight in the Portland jetport was cancelled except for mine due to the blizzard. My actual interview session was not like a conversation like I had been made to believe by others beforehand. I felt belittled and insulted with a few of the questions. However, it was my first interview and I was not aware that some interviews actually focus on your weaknesses if you are a strong applicant." More from this Member | Report Response

"not much, the facilities are nice, and biddeford is right on the water, cost is probably my personal biggest drawback." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town of Biddeford. It's poor and depressing. I couldn't live there. I would have to commute from a better community. I wouldn't want my weekends to be there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All of the interviews seemed to run late. I was scheduled for 2:00 p.m. and did not end up being interviewed until 3:00 p.m." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. I personally got VERY nervous in the interview (b/c it's my top choice school and I just get nervous in these things), so I didn't enjoy the actual interview. But I think it still went well. (the MSII student that interviewed me actually said, "you're nervous aren't you? Relax we're just here to get to know you". I wish they would have had a few more organized things for us. I also wish they would have had a printout of the financial" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish we would have gotten to see the anatomy lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the computers around the med building are macs, but you can certainly use whatever you want. Couldn't see the anatomy lab because of a STUPID Maine law (felony if not a student). The library was kind of small." More from this Member | Report Response

"School is very expensive." More from this Member | Report Response

"How brief my interview was. I honestly thought I had blown it for some reason because it only seemed like I spent 2 minutes in there. Other people's interviews took much longer. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing! I loved it all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"Extremely small school (but that can be both a blessing and a curse); the apparent lack of a specific, local, university/teaching hospital affiliation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"confusion of lottery process for clinical rotations, major driving distances betw some rotation sites" More from this Member | Report Response

"Minor point - the campus isn't very large. " More from this Member | Report Response

"About 4 feet of snow everywhere" More from this Member | Report Response

"Housing seems scarce close to the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a bit chilly" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is so far from anything. The med school building is really small, and parts of it are shared with the undergraduates. I'm used to city life, so I guess this isn't quite the type of setting that I'm most comfortable in." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no presentation given about the school. And I really didn't learn much about the school, its curriculm or different programs, besides the informaiton students were able to provide." More from this Member | Report Response

"The town of biddeford" More from this Member | Report Response

"very unorganized day. They could have easily made it a lot better." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got there at 8:30am and someone (not sure who) told me to sit in the cafe with the other applicants. That's the last admissions person (if that's in fact who she was) I saw. The faculty came and got us for interviews, and brought us back. My tour was supposed to be at 10:00, but my 11:15 we kidnapped a student and he gave us a quick tour. Then a faculty member felt bad for all of us and gave us another tour. No one was there to welcome us, no name tags, no introductions, no overview of the school except for some photocopied pages, no official tour, no direction and no schedule (at leat that anyone followed). Twilight Zone?? Lunch was supposed to be at 12:00, but we didn't know what or where or with whom. We stood in a circle in the lobby like idiots until one of us finally found someone from the curriculum office and she took us to a small room with chairs stacked against the wall, and a small tray of food that looked like it was left over from the last interview group who couldn't find it. Then I left. End of story. The "process" was the worst you could ever expect. I try not to expect too much from an interview day and go in with an open mind, but this was just pitiful."

I felt like I expressed myself, but the fabrics were a but static-filled which gave me a bit of a distraction wondering if I was getting rumpled. It's silly to even repeat this, but the bottom line really is that they want to meet you, the person. So, express that in all the ways you can without being too outrageous, of course.

There were basically 3 or 4 teams for interviews and you were assigned to a team and then given a number (ie. you are interviewing with team 2 and you are second). One of the other interviewees was asked ethical questions: "what would you do if one of your preceptors had a substance abuse problem?" "how would you handle a situation where you saw another student cheating?" and so on. But all of the students there are super nice, and they have second years sit with you while you're waiting for your interview and after to help you destress and keep you calm.

"The school must be doing something really wrong in how it teaches Biochemistry because 5 randomly selected individual students (asked separately) told me that Biochemistry is the worst part of UNECOM. A former UNECOM student said that Immunology is also awful (current students I spoke with wouldn't yet know this). Compared to other DO schools, UNECOM board scores are not impressive. I wasn't impressed with the OMM lab, though it seemed OK (very cold). UNECOM is part of the undergraduate campus and I didn't like that. You get the feeling that the medical school is not that important. Crowds of undergraduates everywhere. UNECOM felt like my absolute first choice before my interview. Not anymore."

"I was overall really impressed with the school - the facilities and the campus were top notch. The day started out with a brief overview of the school and a financial aid presentation. Then, the dean of students came out and asked us who we knew from UNECOM (she knew every person that we responded with!). We were broken up into two groups, one going on the tour and the other staying behind to interview. The interview was really low stress, and mine was with an MS-II and a DO. It was really just a conversation about my file - nothing difficult was asked. I would love to go here!" More from this Member | Report Response

After the video we had about 2 hours to sit and wait for our interview. Unorganized compared to other schools I have interviewed at." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNECOM is probably the best school if you want to go into primary care in a rural setting. Interviews were relaxed. One professor and one second year medical student interviewed me. The student was the more strict of the two, but both were friendly and professional. Students loved their school, and were very close and helpful to one another." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived 1 hour early. Struck up a conversation with a student studying in the meeting room. She immediately offered to answer any questions I had and reassured me that the interview would be laid back. We had a 15 min slide show about UNE, then we waited for our individual interviews in the cafe. Most were 1 on 1 that day. My interview was with a Ph.D. He was friendly--starting off with how we had similar childhoods growing up near salt water and having to be near the ocean. We had overlapping research interests, so he had me explain what I've been up to. He then mentioned his interests, but quickly focused back on me, asking me the usual: Why Osteopathic medicine, why UNECOM, what branch of medicine will you pursue. The interview lasted about 20 min, though we were scheduled for 30min--I really emphasized that UNE was my top choice. He said I had a good interview, so I'm hopeful. After my interview I waited for some others to finish, then MS I's took us on a tour of campus. They were helpful and honest about the school. I love this place and hope to attend there."

"The interview went pretty good. First professor who interviewed me graduated BU and knew Boston very well. We talked about Red Socks, Fenway, and Boston. He is working on the same research I did recently, so he asked me what I know about that. Second lady was a DO and she asked me the usual questions, like why DO, why UNECOM, etc. They both suggested that I look into MPH and PhD programs because of my extensive science and research background I think. I still have no idea what MPH do and why will I need it. The students were very nice and helpful too." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty good - the interviewers more or less had a long conversation with me picking things out of my file and asking me about them - tell me about your research, tell me about being an EMT, etc... - The interviewers also gave me some great information that I did not know. The students were very helpful too " More from this Member | Report Response

"I've already been accepted to an MD (in the U.S.) school...I went in just wanting to make sure that I was making a right choice by going to that MD school, and now UNECOM is neck-in-neck with that other school. I got nothing but good vibes from the school, the students, the town (Biddeford/Saco), and the state of Maine. The interview itself was a very enjoyable conversation with a retired pathologist (DO) and a second year medical student. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Conversational, with the interviewers truly trying to get to know me. I did not have to summarize to them my personal statement or give them the same answers to the same questions already asked on their supplmental application. They knew all those answers, Why DO? Why UNE?. They just wanted to know more about me, family, and what I do to relax." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, except for some minor (I hope) interview blunders, it was probably more laid back than I perceived at the time. I couldn't read one interviewer at all, which just threw off my game. Interesting questions, some seemed a little from left field, but overall a fair, nonagressive format. " More from this Member | Report Response

"GREAT interview. The entire day put UNECOM easily into my top 2 schools. The students were by far the most diverse crowd of any school I've interviewed at so far and also some of the nicest yet. The interview went well. I was asked some odd and possibly difficult questions, but somehow came up with great answers. I felt as though the interviewers were forcing honesty more than the other schools. After the tour and interview the unorganization kicked in a bit again. I had the impression that we all would eat a lunch together but many people just kind of left and some of us went to the university cafeteria, which was crowded at that time, but had actually really decent food. I went out that night in Biddeford/Saco and had fun, but am a little concerned about having fun outside of school long-term (the outdoor activity scene is great, worried about commercial type stuff). Overall, the school had its pros and very few cons, but it had a great feel in general." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day starts with a little presentation on the school, with little on financial aid (getting tired of these talks). We then took a tour of the school. The facilities are all recently updated (plasmas in anatomy lab, clean multipurpose lab, comfy lecture halls). The students were all hanging out around the school, studying, socializing and whatnot, which is great to see. Interviews are next and while you are waiting a bunch of students rotate through to answer questions and whatnot. You wait in the common/cafe area, so lots of random students stop by too. We then had lunch, but rather than having lunch at the med school cafe, a group of us opted to pay to eat in the cafeteria; pretty good food and a great view of the Saco river and ocean. Overall, one of the two best interview days I've had (this was the last one too). Will be attending if a scholarship doesn't come through from another school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Arrived and met with current students. All were friendly and honest. Had coffee and talked with them about the school. Shown a powerpoint on the school and various facets of student life from financial aid to extracurricular groups/activities. Brought back out and half toured school, other half waited for interview. Based on last year's SDN feedback, expected 3 on 1 panel with a student, science prof., and clinician. Instead I was now told it would be 1 on 1. Interviewer came out ot get me, told me to relax and took me to room where the other interviewer was, for my 2 on 1 panel interview. I think it got better as it went, but some Qs in beginning were a little tough. and these were tougher given that I was told to relax and expect nothing stressful. Afterward, toured (beautiful) school+facilities, ate lunch with guides as a student flag football game was beginning. Then was free to go. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a great day at the school, though my interview felt just slightly confrontational by one of the interviewers. The students there are amazing. Very cohesive, and you don't get talk about their diversity - you see it with who's there, walking by, talking to you. It felt very homey & easy to fit in there, even as a visitor I felt at home."

"I have been very clear from the beginning that this was the school for me. I put all my eggs in one basket and only interviewed here. As a non-traditional student and mother of 2, I really neede to stay absolutely single minded from the start of the pre-med endeavor all the way through. It reads clearly to your interviewers when you know what you want. Take time to research yourself and be clear before you start flying all over the country to attend many interviews. Look over the questions on this website, and refer back to your own essays that you worked on to get yourself to the point of being granted an interview. Be yourself in whatever glorious ways you can be." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview itself was amazing. The first years who did q&a with those waiting to interview were very nice, helpful and a very bunch. I left with no feeling of competition amongst the students...instead UNE appears to be very cohesive and supportive both student body and administration/faculty" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interview was incredibly relaxed. I had a clinician, a scientist and a MSII. They were really interested in finding out who I was and why I was interested in UNE and osteopathic medicine. I was suprised that I wasnt asked about my grades or MCAT scores because both are a little lower than their averages. But in truth, the interview really was just about finding out who I was and what I could offer to UNE." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think overall the day went very well. There seemed to be a lot of sitting around, but there was almost a 1-1 ratio of med school students to interviewees, so you got LOTS of questions answered. The interview was VERY conversational, while at the same time providing me a chance to let them know me and why I want to be a doctor. I think everything went well because I got in a few weeks later." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very nervous since this was my first (and, as it turns out, ONLY) interview. You meet with the other interviewees and watch a quick presentation after being introduced to the Dean or other administration. Then, you get your folder with your interview time and interviewer names on it. The interview itself was relaxed, more like a conversation than anything else. After the interview, the tour guide, who was an MSI, took the two interviewees on a tour of the school and then we were free to go." More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my second time interviewing at UNECOM. My interview was on Oct 12, 2005 and I received my acceptance letter 2 and a half weeks later. So it was a pretty quick turn-around, seeing they had said it would be 6 weeks to hear back. The interview process is very laid back. Last time I had 2 interviewers, this time I had 3. They don't ask you any of those 'feared' questions where you have to defend yourself against their onslaught. They start off with something you put in your application (a hobby both time for me) and the conversation naturally progresses from there. I was the last to interview in my group (there was 2 sets of 3 interviewers) so I actually had a long interview, about 45-50 minutes. But that was because there was no one waiting, and because I involved the interviewers in casual conversation ('off topic' stuff). Most interviews were 30 minutes. Seriously, UNECOM interviews you to make sure you're not unstable, or arrogant, have other some personality disorder. They want to see a normal person with interest in medicine and outside of medicine. Be yourself. If they ask you a question you don't know the answer to, tell them so. If you have a topic that relates to what they asked you, spin off and talk about it after you've answered their question. You're not going to get one of those horror story interviews everyone hears about, where they surround you and you're in the middle of the circle quickly darting your head around to feild answers from 18 people. I felt no pressure, no undue stress and no negative feelings at both interviews I've had. It's a cool place." More from this Member | Report Response

We each had a packet telling us what time we were to go on the tour and what time our interview was (and it listed our interviewers names). My interview was about an hour later than what it was stated to be. They did offer breakfast (danishs, bagels) and lunch and we were free to leave after our interview was over" More from this Member | Report Response

"This school was not at the top of my list originally. Let's face it, the last three years the board passing rate has declined. However, they are aware of this problem and have been revamping the curriculum every year since the decline began. The interviewer was funny, smart, pointed in his questions while disguising them as a conversational query. Overall, one of the best interviews of the bunch so far. Before my interview, UNECOM was at the bottom of the list. It is now quite close to the top. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer spent a significant amount of time talking about himself. It was a little frustrating because I thought the interview was about me talking, but afterwards, thinking about it, I realized that it was probably done on purpose. Being a doctor is about having the right answers, but it's also about being able to listen to patients, and I am almost positive that he talked so much because he was testing my ability to listen. Hopefully I remained engaged enough." More from this Member | Report Response

There was a snowstorm (4-6 inches)with an accompanying ice storm. In addition, I left half of my suit at home, so I was self-conscious throughout the day and developed some intricate tactics to disguise the mishap, which made the incident quite comical immediately after the fact. But at the end, I received full acceptance to the school. The interview is what really counts after all. What many applicants fail to realize is that once an interview is granted, anxiety will only cause you to not fully comprehend the concept that the school has a considerable interest in who you are! Remember this fact: If you are good enough for an interview than you are good enough for admission. Plain and simple be yourself that is all you have!" More from this Member | Report Response

After the tour we gathered and waited for the interviews. It was really informal but I learned a lot about the school and the students while I waited.

"It was very laid back. The interviewers were a DO who was very talkative(which is a good thing) and a MSII. No crazy ethical scenarios or criticisms of my record, just a casual conversation and a chance for me to get to know the school. I believe the interview was partially open-file. They did not ask anything about grades or experiences, but knew I was in graduate school." More from this Member | Report Response

"The best piece of advice: relax. The interview was so laid back, the interviewers were friendly and made a good attempt to make small talk on the way to the room. Both interviewers were DOs, but neither of them graduated from UNECOM (though both are now involved with UNECOM in one way or another). One of them was very upfront and verbose, the other was quiet. They were easy on me. I found that if i had paused mid sentence because i was lost for a word, they would interject something about themselves that would relate to what i was saying, which made it less awkward. I felt comfortable at all times. Also, I don't think that they were allowed to see my grades, or at least not until they had done my interview (from what i gather). They never mentioned MCATS or past grades, pretty much the whole interviewed centered on why i wanted to become a osetopathic doctor and my hobbys. If you're invited for an interview with UNECOM, just be yourself. As one of my interviewers said to the group before taking any of us in, "Relax, if we offered you a interview it was because you have meet our requirements. We like you already. This is more of a chance for you to question us as a school, and for us to get to know you as a person." " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, my interview went very smoothly. I was on the accept space available list last year and am a re-applicant. The interview was very laid back, probably because I felt more confident, not that it was easier than before. The school still impresses me, even after being there once before.

"I thought that the interview was a very positive experience. I was assured when I got there that this would be the most relaxed interview ever by the first and second year students. The facilities and surrounding area of the school were very impressive. I will definitely go to this school if accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience. It was a group interview with the group being the interviewers rather than students. In spite of there being three of them to just me, it never felt pressured or high stress. Probably the most positive fact was that I had my acceptance in less than two weeks by certified mail. I absolutely hate the waiting that some schools put you through. I was actually sure enough of the school and my 'fit' there that I withdrew all of my other applications except one after getting the acceptance. This freed me to spend my time working on scholarship applications, etc. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived approximately 1 hour before my scheduled interview time and found a UNECOM student welcoming me into the school. She was very nice, and a pleasure to talk with. The faculty brought us into the classroom and showed us a slide show presentation about the school. I was soon after brought into a room where three very friendly interviewers asked me a series of questions, and the whole interview was more of a discussion and relaxed conversation rather than a high pressure interview."

"Overall, the interview was pretty relaxed and a great experience, though some of the questions that were asked kept me on my toes. I really enjoyed talking with my interviewers even though I was a bit nervous. I was very glad to see that the interviewers really just wanted to get a sense about what made me tick. If I get accepted, I would definitely be excited about going to UNECOM." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I left UNECOM liking it more than I had expected to. The Facilities and students' tight knit atmosphere was very welcoming. After flying into boston, I rented a car and drove up here. I suggest that, although a little pricey, over the train because once you get to biddeford/saco you wont be able to really get around without a car. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview at UNE started with a powerpoint presentation of the school and a short talk about financial aid. The interviews followed. They were a little behind schedule but not too late. We ended with a short tour of the school after that. School was really nice and completely wireless. I was only asked about 4 or 5 questions and then they asked me if I had any questions so be prepared with lots of questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like this interview experience at all. Even if I get in, I'd have to seriously consider going because I was not impressed by anything there." More from this Member | Report Response

"When I arrived at the school everyone was sitting in around tables and we got a chance to talk with some students. Then we had some presentations and a slide show about the school to watch. They actually gave us times that are interviews were supposed to be, however there was a possibility for delay. After the presentations, a group of us went on a tour which was excellent. The current students answered any questions anyone had. As soon as we got back from the tour it was time for my interview, so I didn't even have a chance to get nervous. The interview was much more relaxed than my other interview. It was mostly just a conversation. They asked me questions about my college since I am not from around New England as well as my trip to Maine. They also asked about many of the unqiue experiences on my application. All of the questions seemed to be very much related to each indiviual's application. There weren't really that many direct questions, it was more like... tell me about this. As soon as the interview was over we were allowed to leave which was nice because it allowed me to start on my long trip a little earlier. I really loved the school and sent my 1st deposit in at the end of December (2 deposits totaling $1,500). When I was first picking schools I asked my advisor if I should apply to UNECOM, she told me to go ahead and I am so glad a did. The school has a small setting and you will be known by your name not a serial number. I am very excited to start med school at UNECOM!! " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was my first interview and I was nervous. But they put me at ease and brought out the best in me." More from this Member | Report Response

"First we watched a short powerpoint presentation on the school, which provided some basic facts. Then came a short financial aid meeting. The advisor bascially just handed out a packet and told us to read it. By then, it was time to begin the interviews. My interview was very relaxed. There was an MD, PhD and second year med-student on my panel. They gave me plenty of time to ask my own questions at the end of the interview. Since I was the first interview scheduled, I had to wait for the others in my group to finish. While the others were being interviewed, I sat with the students and got a lot of my questions answered. Once everyone in my group was done with their interviews, we went on a tour of the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Mellow and fairly unstructured morning. You could get as much or as little out of the day as you wanted. I actually enjoyed talking with my interviewers (MS2, Prof., and alumni pediatrician) they really tried to make me relax which I did when I got to ask my questions ( I grilled them more than they grilled me). Quick financial aid and welcome presentation, followed by tour, and then interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I like UNECOM. It seems that they have a wonderful and supportive community. The school has great facilities. The interview itself was pretty short, but I lengthened it with my questions. The waiting was somewhat long though... Couldn't blame anyone for being late that day- blizzard conditions!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I flew into the Portland Jetport (about 35 minutes away from Biddeford) on Friday, December 5th. I rented a car through National (the only car rental company to waive the under-age fee) and drove to Saco where I stayed the night with a medical student who volunteered to let me stay with her. I left early the next morning to get to UNE by 8:15am. It was snowing more than I had expected, and I definitely did not bring the right shoes with me. I did not realize how much walking in the snow I would have to do (with my nice dress shoes on). Approximately 15 people were there also waiting to be interviewed. They called our names every 30 - 40 minutes. My appointment was scheduled for 10:30am; however, I was not interviewed until 11:40. In the meantime, two medical students gave us a tour of the building. I did not get to see the whole campus or the water because it was too cold and snowy outside. After my interview, I rushed to the airport hoping that my flight would not be cancelled, and I sat in the airport extremely upset at how awful the interview session had been. Overall my experience in Maine was nice, I was just not prepared to constantly defend myself in the interview, and I had never thought about what my weaknesses were or why my MCAT score wasn't a 45! I guess it did not go as bad as I thought it did, because they accepted me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school. The students were really friendly. The DO and the MSII that interviewed me, really just wanted to get to know who I was. I didn't get the impression that they were worried about what I was saying, they just wanted to see if you were a real person with real goals and really are committed to the school and osteopathic medicine. they kept saying, ASK QUESTIONS, there are no questions that are dumb. I even asked my interviewers, "what do YOU like the most about the school?" I think it went well. Again, feel free to PM me!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Awesome! I liked it much better than WVSOM. I really would love going there. I flew into Boston, then took the subway to the North Station (under the Fleet Center). Had to lug my bag around while I wandered around the north side of Boston (super cool). Found a sports bar named Hurricane O'Reilly's which had retractable windows and comfy chairs--enjoyed the beautiful weather while eating. Took the Downeaster to Saco ($19 each way). I stayed at the Hampton Inn which has a special with the school for $65 a night (good amenities, had an iron, breakfast bar). Rented a car with Enterprise (which had an agreement with the Hampton Inn) for $35 a day and no underage fee. Went to the school, got interviewed by a 2nd Year and a DO. I had the hardest interview, but I was definitely up to the challenge and I think it helped my chances a lot. I will find out on the Tue/Wed after the interview whether I got accepted. I would suggest that you stay with a Med student host, they are really cool, and you will learn a great deal. Plus its cheaper and you can arrange to go with them to see some of the classes and hang out." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNE is a fantastic school. They let me know two days later that I was accepted. Everyone was very friendly and easy to talk to. The facilites are fantastic. i can't wait to start next year. Interview was very laid back. They wanted to know about me. We never discussed grades or MCAT scores. They want to bring in students who will be good doctors, not only book-smart people." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admissions staff stresses that the interviews are not stressful, and they are not. In fact, I would almost say they are so laid-back as to be anti-climatic. I loved the school, but I really thought i had blown the interview. I did'nt want to get too excited about going there and then get a rejection. On the following Wednesday, I got a certified mail letter saying I was accepted. So don't freak out if your interview seems really short!" More from this Member | Report Response

" I thought the campus was great I wish I could have stayed longer. the environment is beautiful and I think it is a perfect fit for me. I also thought it was great you are allowed to call in instead of waiting for an answer. they mail the answers the next day ususally and you hear back very rapidly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students are super-friendly. I was fortunate enough to meet up with an MS-I the night before. We had dinner with a bunch of other MS-I's and I got to ask every imaginable question while I was there. I recommend staying with an admission's host to everyone who is able to do this. The day started at 8:15. They had coffee and muffins for breakfast, and then gave us a powerpoint presentation on the college. Q&A was followed by a tour and then your interview, or vice-versa. I was very impressed by the Medical School building... modern, comfortable and all the latest technology. It didn't hurt that it was a beautiful day and that I spent some time near the Maine Coast. Oh yeah, did I mention that EVERYONE is super friendly and helpful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"UNECOM is a wonderful school. My interviewer was extremely nice, we really seemed to hit it off. This school is definitely my first choice. They have great fascilities and really emphasize the importance of anatomy (which is important to me because I have been an A&P TA for a few years). The students were very informative and seemed to love the school as they are not paid to help with tours. Great community, Great school, and great place to live" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, the interviewers made me feel very comfortable. This was my first interview and I feel it went very well. I am excited to hear if I get in, because I think this is where I want to go. The professors that interviewed me were very friendly. They seemed like the type of guys who would go out for drinks with you after class or come over on sunday to watch a football game. They were real people and they treated you like you mattered to them. They were genuinely interested in who you are and left me with a very positive feeling about UNE. If even half of the teachers are like them, then those who get into UNE are a lucky group." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNECOM is easily my first choice school -- the physical plant is terrific, the setting is breathtaking, and the program is first-rate. Our interview day started with a fire alarm and building evacuation, which set everything behind by about a half hour. No biggie. I found the morning to be well-organized and pretty relaxed, all things considered! There were nine interviewees in my morning group, and three panels of two interviewers. There also appeared to be a group of similar size in the afternoon. I interviewed with a biochemistry prof and a nutrition prof, who were extremely kind and conversational, but also quite direct in approaching my shortcomings. My interview went about 50 minutes, which was the longest of our group. Most were around 30 minutes or so. Hindsight being 20/20, in the absence of a DO on my panel (both were PhDs), I think that perhaps I should have toned down my enthusiasm for osteopathic principles. The campus was nearly vacant due to Spring Break, but the MS1 student who was our guide was helpful, friendly, and pretty much all other tenets of the Boy Scout Law. The faculty was professional, but not snooty or arrogant at all, and the interview felt conversational. I really did feel that they wanted to get to know me as an applicant. I also heard that the class is full (we are at the end of the UNECOM interviewing cycle), so people who are favorably reviewed will likely end up on a waiting list. All in all, it was a good interview trip. They pretty much did everything they could do to make it less of a nerve-wracking experience, and also provided a snack table and lunch. Any major stressors that I ended up dealing with were pretty much of my own creation!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I was impressed by the school: its curriculum (extensive anatomy hours), facilities and people (staff and students). The two first-years were very helpful: they answered all the questions (and if they didn't know they asked someone) and made sure we got a full tour. The Admissions Committee meets on Sats and decisions should issue w/in 2 weeks. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I really appreciated the fact that the interview environment was very friendly. At the California Osteopathic Medical Schools, they're very patronizing in their tone, and I really don't think there's any need for that type of an interview. So, UNE was right up my alley. There's no dress code like Erie or Nova, and the students seem to be very synergistic in their studies - always helping each other out. There aren't any class rankings - 70% means pass and 90% means high pass. Overall, UNE, KCOM, and PCOM are the top three choices for me now. " More from this Member | Report Response

"UNE was my first and only interview. I had a very positive experience and I was made to really feel at home. They let you know a few days after your interview if you have been accepted or not. I was accepted and withdrew my other applications since this school was my first choice. Rumor has it it's pretty hard to find housing. Not true. I have had plenty of luck finding places so far. Also on the UNE website, they have a listing with all of the places available for rent, which I found VERY helpful." More from this Member | Report Response

"It went well, I was really nervous becasue it was my first interview and a school I really want to get into. I haven't heard yet (but they said within a week) but I didn't think it was that bad and the profs. I interviewed with really knew my WHOLE file, including everything about my parents and my transcript (be prepared to talk about anything that is a little unusual on your transcript, for instance my minor was the first thing they asked me about. I was not ready for that)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was so laid back it was basically just a converstion with two faculty members. We had two tour guides that were second years and they were incredible. Biddeford was not all that rural, there were restaurants, a movie theater, and big named stores. I did not feel like I was in the middle of nowhere. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was scheduled to begin at 8:30am. There were a group of about 20 interviewees and about 4 current UNE students. Everybody was assigned a time and a pair of interviewers. Afterwards, there was an brief, optional tour with two of the students. Lunch was offered, but most people left before it was served. There was no presentation on the school or financial aid. I don't feel that anybody really emphasized the attributes of the school and what it can offer students. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall this school turned out to be better than I had expected. I wil definately consider attending if accepted. I really wasn't impressed with the town of Biddeford-very rural." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the school. It is only about an hour and a half north of boston, and 20 minutes from POrtland. THe school itself is right on the ocean. I really enjoyed the day, despite the horrendous lack of organization. But, all students seemed VERY happy there, and all the faculty seemed great. Their admissions team leaves a lot to be desired, but if you look beyond that one negative, everything else was great. For this interview, really just be yourself and i think you'll do fine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had the easier of the two sets of interviewers. My group was a biochem prof and two physicians from the area (one former neurosurgeon now family practitioner and one OB/GYN). I imagine it was the same setup for the other group. However, I heard from everyone (current students and my interviewee group) that the other guy was one for asking the bizarre and difficult questions that you see on the "typical med school interview questions" list. So, just in case you get him, check those out!! Mine merely asked about why I wanted to go there, and why family practice, and how I would handle the curriculum. They were very friendly and easy-going. I was only stressed because it is my first choice. But, I have been accepted at DMU already, so that helped take the pressure off. I guess your experience will depend on which interviewer group you get! The tour was very helpful. It is a nice campus. It is smaller than some, and fairly new (only since 1978), but it is doing well. They have nice fitness facilities, including a pool, and racquetball courts, and indoor track, and of course the OCEAN! One word of caution - if you choose this school, start hunting for housing ASAP... It is VERY difficult to obtain. And, it is kind of pricey. There is great waterfront property available at decent rates until summer hits, and then you have to find somewhere else to live while they rent it out as seasonal stuff, so to avoid that, you need to find a year-round rental right away. Many people sign leases in Feb. And if you have a pet like I do, GOOD LUCK - that is even more rare! But if you look hard enough, you will find it." More from this Member | Report Response
