What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are amazing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Excellent technological investment into educating doctors. Contrary to big name schools, which invest most of their technology into research, Nebraska really seemed to focus most of their funds on ways to improve the education of doctors--which is why I'm going to med school, not getting a PhD." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities - new reserach and student center, anatomy lab is amazing & one of a kind. Students were fun and friendly, not too stressed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical center, the enthusiasm of staff, administration, faculty - pretty much everything. They seem to be putting a lot of effort and money into their students (2 new research buildings, new edu center, etc). They seem very progressive and I got the feeling that they are "up and coming"...This school surprisingly impressed me the most out of all of my interviews and visits." More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilities, technology, and opportunities for international medicine trips" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus" More from this Member | Report Response

"How much they get you involved in the clinical side of medicine, even in your first and second year so that you are adequately prepared for 3rd year rotations." More from this Member | Report Response

"EVERYTHING, the students, faculty, staff, buildings, surroundings. Compared to the other posts, THIS IS TRULY A GREAT PLACE TO GET A MEDICAL EDUCATION." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. The weather was nice in Omaha." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was set up well the support staff did a nice job. The person I interviewd with was nice too." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewr and the lunch(yummy!!!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone was extremely nice. They had put together a nice presentation about the school, and tried to sell it without being too "salesman-ish". Their international programs also seem to be extensive, which is a big draw." More from this Member | Report Response

"School, classes the set up, I was excited" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the new buildings are really cool. The support staff was helpful and kind." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, they show you all this new stuff, but it is buildings and rooms and flat screen computers, nothing about professors, classes or the important academic material. Just useless crap that any state university can get with a large endownment!!!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus is pretty cool." More from this Member | Report Response

"The buildings" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nice lunch. Did not start until 10:30, a humane hour. The faculty presentation was very impressive b/c of the curriculum, focus on rural primary care, and opportunities available to students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students bragged about value of their education" More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lack of mentorship" More from this Member | Report Response

"Grading system is based on a bell curve, which means students are extremely competitive." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was only 15 minutes in length, so I don't feel I was able to even make an impression. It wasn't a bad interview, but it wasn't a good one either. Sort of worries me and wish they would have gone the fully allotted 30 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tuition" More from this Member | Report Response

"He just read off my AMCAS application and essentially asked me to verify if everything was correct." More from this Member | Report Response

"The person that interviewed me was foreign, and had a very thick accent. We had a very hard time understanding each other. At one point I had to repeat myself three times before he understood what I was telling him." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer asked me a lot of strange questions, so it was hard to tell how well it went. But he was very nice, and it was a pleasant experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"All med school classes, PBL sessions, study rooms, and hang out areas are in a single building; I think I would go a little stir crazy." More from this Member | Report Response

"No interaction with real patients until the 3rd year. However, they do have hired actors and at least 6 "millon dollar men" which you practice on in the first and second years." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, it was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was ~30 minutes late so that just gave me time to sit and get more nervous." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ice rink? really?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Omaha is pretty boring. Interview was not held in a private office and seemed short." More from this Member | Report Response

"Tours and students available to answer questions were M3/M4's--might have been better if they were M2's since they can relate better to us pre-meds. Some facilities are old--that will change when the brand new new complex opens for Fall 2008 (Hence the 9 rating)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The campus isn't the most attractive all around." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were twice as many applicants as last year" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wouldn't say it was a negative impression, but the hospital is a little confusing at first." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities in current medical school are something to be desired..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dumpy facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I am hoping that I will qualify for the non-resident tuition waivers." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the students seemed disinterested, made the tour boring. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The new student center won't be complete for 2 years :( Not a negative impression, but I was a little disappointed. The library isn't open 24 hours. The website doens't do the school justice." More from this Member | Report Response

"the anatomy lab was kind of dungeon-esque. There were utensil trays on top of some of the bodies, which seemed disrespectful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer kept giving me funny looks. I don't if she didn't like what I was saying or if that is just the way she listens. It was kinda unnerving though. Oh and I was dissapointed about the food since every once else on here was saying how great it was." More from this Member | Report Response

"old anatomy lab, saturday tests" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were kind of old, but there were still nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer told me the interivew won't make or break your admissions into UNMC...kind of a bummer because I thought I did very well." More from this Member | Report Response

"UNMC has one of the lower female percentages for their general student population, and I definitely noticed it." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were lacking (which I mostly realized after interviewing at other schools). In addition I felt that the students who were not involved with the interview day tended to just stare at all of us instead of engaging us in conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are very limited. My interviewer was terrible, disinterested and did not even ask relevant questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"Too focused on rural medicine - makes sense for Nebraska but thats not in tune with my personal aspirations. " More from this Member | Report Response

"There was no financial aid presentation because the finaid staff was gone." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some of the applicants seemed very....self-centered. The actual med-students that were there were all very cool, and I enjoyed the time I spend with them. However many of the applicants I wouldn't want as classmates." More from this Member | Report Response

"Omaha is not a very attractive city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing major. The only thing that I could slightly complain about is that it seems there are a whole lot of folks from UNL that interviewed that day and knew each other, so they somewhat made their own little groups. Also, the tour was a little unorganized." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything else, students very cocky and disinterested in us, they werent very happy. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The student giving the tour didn't really show us much - didn't have access to many places, including anatomy labs, etc. So it was just basically a group of people wandering around - not helpful at all to get to know the campus." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students who gave tours did not rally try to get to know the interviewees. Most of them were M3's who were never going to see us again, so they didn't really care if we were impressed by their school or not." More from this Member | Report Response

"NOTHING" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students were emphasizing the price of the school rather than the quality of the education. Also NONE of the Students said anything helpful. No presentation on the curriculuum or academic offerings of the school. Tour was pathetic and rushed. This school is NOT MY FIRST CHOICE ANYMORE. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were not friendly, I felt like they did not want to be there. Other interviews they usually introduce themselves, here they didnot. "Hi I am an M2 you can ask me questions" The facilities are very old I expected more from the school that brags about being number one in the state." More from this Member | Report Response

"there was one medical student at another table that was stuck-up" More from this Member | Report Response

"They kept apologizing because the interviews were in a different place than normal. I didn't have a problem with it, but they seemed to." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Alot, students, interviewer, basically the whole school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think some of the students were a bit prissy and not too friendly or as some people say jackasses.............." More from this Member | Report Response

"The student body was arrogant? They did not treat us as guests which was very uncomfortable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"THE STUDENTS" More from this Member | Report Response

"The bull**** the students were saying. Most of them had their noses in the air. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Huge number of applicants interviewing (40). How short the day was. You spend all that time and money travelling, for 3.5 hours that don't give you nearly enough information. Then you have only 1 short interview (some people were done in 20 minutes). My interviewer was very nice but had no insightful questions, and interviewed 4 of us in a row with no breaks between. How was he going to remember anything about us? Suppose you did not make your best impression with this one person?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cruddy bottom floor to the med school, with a cruddy anatomy lab. Low ceilings, cramped, dingy, and they left what looked like a bag of kidneys laying out in the middle of it. made some of the weaker stomached students a little quesey!" More from this Member | Report Response

"On the tour, they really didn't show us a whole lot." More from this Member | Report Response

"The parts of the school that we toured seemed old and even a bit outdated. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wanted to hear from some administrative staff what their vision for UNMC are/were and what they are currently involved in regarding preparing for the future." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't feel like a got much of a sense of what it was like to be a med student there. Also not impressed by the med students who came by to chat" More from this Member | Report Response

"students- they were all pretty unfriendly and sarcastic. They use a Z-score grading system which is ridiculous. It really breeds a competitive, unfriendly environment. Also, if you're not from Nebraska, DO NOT EVEN APPLY HERE!!! They do NOT take out of staters, which would have been nice to know before I spend $1,000 getting there!!!!! ABSURD!!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There wasn't anything really negative." More from this Member | Report Response

"the staff/interviewers were rude, constantly questioning my motivation to be a dentist. i didnt feel like they cared about anything but the numbers. it was very unprofessional, the facilities were old, the technology is 30 years old, and the staff is to. What will happen when the current teaching faculty leave, there will be a lot of spots to fill with untenured doctors. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities aren't that nice" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that they only have 2 lecture halls for all of the classes, which they have to share with pharmacy students while taking pharmacology." More from this Member | Report Response

"Old, grumpy faculty. School is in Nebraska." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview would not be until later" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was really relaxed, I wish I wasn't as stressed ahead of time since it was mostly a "get to know you" kind of feel." More from this Member | Report Response

"To relax and enjoy yourself" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interviewed by 2 people on the admissions board: the assistant dean and a second year student. I wish I had known she was a second year student so I could adjust my questions for her accordingly." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I'd have known that I'd only get 15 minutes to sell myself to the medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Out of state policies" More from this Member | Report Response

"Time limited interview!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was a closed interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was relaxing and even surprisingly pleasant." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bring a snack. They provide water prior to lunch, but you may want a little boost." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it would take longer to get there than I expected and that it would take so long to find a parking spot." More from this Member | Report Response

"the schools desire to enter more research based studies...they are a relatively high ranked school in primary care and hope to move to the same level in research" More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school is smaller and not necessarily as well known as your favorite ''Harvard,'' but an excellent school that teaches students to become physicians well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Block curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"The website does not do the school enough justice. Lunch was amazing!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The lottery numbers for this weeks 10 million dollar prize." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wouldn't want to know this beforehand because being a little nervous helps me I think, but maybe that once you're granted an interview you're considered the same as an in-state applicant." More from this Member | Report Response

"It would have been nice to have known a little about my interviewer before the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I would have know that my interviewer was not a medical doctor or at least someone familiar with hard sciences before I went off explaining the research I had done like I was talking to someone that would understand me. I didn't find out until the interview was over that my interviewer was an ethics and humanities professor." More from this Member | Report Response

"how obnoxious other premeds are" More from this Member | Report Response

"That everybody was going to wear suits! I didn't know we had to dress up!!! (just kidding)" More from this Member | Report Response

"FOOD IS GREAT at the lunch. admission committee is 18-members and you need like a majority vote. 18-20 student accepted into early decision program already. so that leaves a wopping 100 students left for 2006 class. Gooood luck everyone and may GOD bless you all!" More from this Member | Report Response

"that there will be ALOT of time to talk to the other interviewees." More from this Member | Report Response

"I must say that Nebraska impressed me more than I thought it would. I did get accepted but chose to attend elsewhere." More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like very little diversity at the school (90%+ caucasian)" More from this Member | Report Response

"That we wouldn't have a financial aid talk. They were off doing some sort of course or something." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they really do just want to get to know you." More from this Member | Report Response

"That some of these people are rude...." More from this Member | Report Response

"No surprises, really. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"That i was not going to be able to interact with any staff or faculty" More from this Member | Report Response

"You hear all this great things from UNMC and I was disappointed after the interview. I though this is a better place." More from this Member | Report Response

"how supportive the staff are, that it was extremely laid back" More from this Member | Report Response

"That people here are not very friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"That they interview anyone who is from Nebraska no matter what their performance is in school or MCAT. Well, this kid from my physics class was there and he is kind of an idiot. In my mind a person like that should not be allowed around patients.1" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I am happy that the state has two medical schools!!!!!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview is closed file, they know nada about you. And you have to tell them stuff that is in your file just so you can make sure they see you side. Ridiculos. And the standard deviation grading scale is belony....." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nebraska and Omaha supposed to be the fifth friendliest city in the U.S, the medstudents were far far from that. The grade on z-score and the students said that it doesnot bring any competition- give me a break, that fosters evil competition. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That the school was much better than I had expected, in terms of curriculum and early clinical opportunities. That you cannot become a Nebraska resident after 1st year, but they do offer some tuition scholarships." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not alot.......It's not too easy to find information on the web site, but they'll show you everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"That nobody else asks questions. Come on guys, I know we are all stressed, but I know you all have some questions?!" More from this Member | Report Response

"U of N DOES NOT TAKE OUT OF STATE STUDENTS!!!!! They will extend an interview to everyone, which is bullshit. Waste of money and time...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"That all they are interested in is your G.P.A, experience means nothing. i have worked at the U of N dental college for a year doing clinical work, and they didnt really care about that at all, and another year i spent working in a hospital. i also had a reccomendation from several alumni, staff dentists, science profs, and even the DEAN of the dental school, but again accounted for nothing. i dont know that i would go there even if i do get accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I work there so I'm pretty familiar with it" More from this Member | Report Response

"Bars in Nebraska close at 1AM." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview day was very long considering the interview was only 15 minutes. It would be nice if more interest was placed on the applicants and less on the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back day, they made sure you felt comfortable and eased the nerves. Loved it!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school with a lot of innovative technology" More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing school and facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"Enjoyable day. The clinical simulation lab is extremely impressive. To all future interviewees, don't stress about the interview. It was easily the most laid back experience I've had. Having said that, I have no idea how I did, so take my advice with a grain of salt, I suppose." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, great facilities, great teachers who seem genuinely compassionate and determined to make the students into physicians" More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school! Impressive simulation center/lab, and technology dedicated to the education aspect of med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall exceptional experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything and everyone was great. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long to find out if I am accepted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"There were approx. 30 of us in a formal dining room (quite nice). The day started with a short and very informative presentation from Dr. Hill. After this, some groups had tours while others waited for interviews. The tour was alright, but the new college of medicine building will be opening for the Fall of 08, so that is a bummer we couldn't see that. The interview was very relaxed, one faculty and one med student who votes on the adcom. Overall it was very relaxed and actually fun." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very conversational, very enjoyable. I feel that both interviewers were genuinely interested in me as a person. As others have said, there is a short presentation at 10:30, then interviews/tours until lunch. ''Student Ambassadors'' (3rd and 4th years) are on-hand to answer questions the whole time you're there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was the most laid back interview experience I have ever had. It started at 10:30am with a short overview presentation. Then, some of us took a tour while some other interviewed. The interview was closed file and was in a small room with just you, one member of the faculty, and one medical student. It was laid back, conversational, and very comfortable. They asked the basic questions (i.e. why med school?) and then were great about answering questions. All in all it was a great experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience as a whole was positive. There were about 20 to 25 applicants seated together in a nice dining room. The Dean of Admissions talked to us for 20 minutes and then groups of the applicants went on tours while the others waited to be pulled out for their interview time. Lunch was great. Everyone was very nice and enthusiastic, and they seemed to be aware that this was a high pressure day and made an effort to make us be more relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"As i said, it was an easy interview. Arrived around 10:30 to an introduction to one of the Assistant Deans, Dr. Hill. Then I had my interview which went well. A tour followed by a short lunch and financial aid presentation finished up the day. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was excellent, but the tour was even better. We got to go through the ER, see the anatomy lab, lecture halls, and all different wings of the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved hospital/people/school. Would attend if accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Relaxed, conversational, brief." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day started around 10:30 am when Dr. Macdonald introduced us to the school's curriculum and facilities. I then took a tour of the hospital and DRC and then interviewed. Medical students sat with us at lunch and we got a chance to ask them lots of questions. The day ended with a financial aid talk. Overall, I think I would be honored if I had the chance to attend UNMC." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall good. The facilities left something to be desired, but I guess that is why they are building a new school next year. That will be great for them. Hope to get an acceptance." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not stressful at all. My interviewer was fun and I felt like she actually cared. The students were great to talk to and clearly love the place." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience was perhaps one of the best that I encountered. The interviewers genuinely wanted to know more about the candidate, and were not just about the numbers or the academic pedigree. It was refreshing to see interviewers act like the knew your background, and not just refer to the application in front of them. In a nutshell,the people were sincere and warm. The interviews were challenging, but moreso on a personality level. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Please keep in mind it was very low stress through all of this; we all assembled in a conference room (~40 people) with snacks and drinks, and then had a presentation from the Dean of Admissions (Dr. Hill). Students were brought in to talk to the applicants as a group while people were pulled out of the room for their interviews - given by a panel of one faculty and one student. The interview took place in an office, was very conversational, and led by the faculty member. The student asked a couple of questions, but was mostly there taking notes. After the interview, we were placed back into the conference room, served a wonderful buffet lunch (seriously, best interview meal I've ever seen) and we were allowed to talk with the students and other applicants more. We then went on a tour of the facilities, reassembled, and we were given a talk regarding financial aid and closing comments by the Dean and staff members." More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived early and chatted with other interviewees. The tour was nice and led by a couple of students. Lunch was not too good, but I wasn't there for fine dining. I was there to score an admission, and did." More from this Member | Report Response

"Far better experience than I expected...very large interview group and almost entirely in-state...my interview was completely unstructured and my interview ran well past the alotted half hour...the new facilities were terrific...the old ones frankly sucked" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was somewhat disappointed with my interview. She didn't ask me about any volunteer work. She didn't ask me what experience I had had working with patients or in a medical setting. I am not quite sure what this woman really learned about me. She just kept looking at me funny and asking really vague open ended questions. And the whole day felt kinda rushed. I would still like to attend this medical school despite the interview.... I was impressed with everything else." More from this Member | Report Response

"show up 10:30, meet other interviewers, take tour. interview for an hour, eat churros and tacos for lunch. financial aid presentation. everyone says goodbye. leave into the cold omaha weather." More from this Member | Report Response

"Intro about the curriculum, then chatted to a med student for a half hour in a small group, did my interview, went on a campus tour, had lunch, and then listened to financial aid. The whole thing was from 10:30 to 3:30. Very relaxed feeling to it." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer spent the whole time reading my statement and asking basically irrelevant clarifying questions about dates and such. She asked me why I wanted to be a doctor in about the last 20 seconds. I could have been absent for all she cared. Terrible experience. I hope this isn't the only school I get into. Though I am a Nebraska resident, I would much rather go to Creighton. Better interview, students, academic standards, facilites, cirriculum ... everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought the interview went well. The interviewer and I had plenty to talk about, and it wasn't a choppy question/answer sort of thing. The conversation flowed, and she seemed to truely be interested in getting to know me. Although, like almost everyone who has interviewed, I left thinking of all of the things I wish I would've mentioned...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Conversational interview (talked about baseball for a bit). My dude specifically said the purpose of the interview is to make sure you don't have any glaring psychological problems." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was conducted in a waiting area in the hospital, with a patient sitting behind me - not very discreet or private. I didn't appreciate that. Then, since it is closed file, we spent a lot of time covering ground that the interviewer could have already been familiar with - waste of my time and hers. Interview ran long and I missed the tour and was not given the opportunity to make up the tour. The day was pretty short. I felt like the financial aid lady was condescending."

"We didn't have to be there until 10:30, so that was nice. A short presentation by the dean of admissions gave tons of great info about the school. Then came a tour, which wasn't worth it and no help, and then interviews. It was one interview with 2 people - one faculty member and a med student. There was no financial aid presentation b/c the department was out of town. That was kind of disappointing since I had heard such great things about financial aid at UNMC. Done by 1:30 p.m. Overall it was a pretty good experience and I look forward to hearing back from them." More from this Member | Report Response

"THIS WAS JUST AWESOME, The students were the best, seemed so caring and helpful, They really wanted to get to know you and where down to earth. These students were someone I would love and want to stand beside when caring for a patient. They have such a wonderful teamwork feeling at Nebraska, It is a place where I think I will amass the best medical education I can SOOOOO many possibilities. I am proud to be a part of this Medical school and cant wait untill classes start in August. A note to other posts and future interviewers. YOU were wrong and you should forget the ignorance you have to this place, it is truly perfect. I interviewed at (UNMC, IOWA, Drexel) This was the best place when you come, be prepared to be served by the wonderful people of Nebraska Medical Center." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like one of the interviewers had a problem with me for some reason. When asked about my accomplishments, she made comments that made me feel she didn't think they were important or impressive. I thought the day was very disorganized. I didn't get to see much of the school b/c we just sat in one room the whole time. I only met a couple current students and it didn't seem like anyone cared that people were there interviewing that day. I have a lot of uncertainties about the school that I won't be able to have answered now unless I get in and then come back for a second look." More from this Member | Report Response

"For anyone going here do not expect anything, the students there are worthless, unhelpful, they brag among themselves, they are just immature. Not a very pleasant place. However if you can look beyond that and look what the school has to offer then go for it." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a really good interviewer. I can tell a lot about a person through their eyes and she was extremely friendly and geniune about the school. The medical student at my table was nice too, which was not what I was expecting due to the other posted thoughts. I love to travel so their international sponsored opportunities are a plus. I'm from a small city so going to an average city is not so bad. The day went like this: morning information session(welcome, juice, fruit, etc.), tour if not having an interview yet, interview, luncheon, financial aid talk. It was planned well in comparison to my other interviews. I have had six. I loved the support services that they have and programs. There seem to be able to financially support some of their students. Out of all my schools, I've interviewed and got accepted to (4 total) their offer was financially the best. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I love the midwest. Everyone talked so highly of the school - the students, faculty, staff, etc. The students I interviewed with also seemed nicer than the ones at most schools. I am definitely much more interested after the interview than I was before." More from this Member | Report Response

"It has taken me awhile to post my interview experience since school has been so busy. Anyway I was not too thrilled with the med center after the interview. I began reading some of the earlier comments and I agree to a certain degree. What I agree on are the students behavior and actions (but who are we to judge them). So I will tell you exactly what they did instead of taking the route of the earlier comments that just marked them as arrogant. 1) Student said he is only there for the free food (makes us feel very good) 2) Student said the only 1 or 2 of you from each table will get in. (are you part of the adcom) 3) Student (male) whispering to other student (male) Are these the dushbags that are coming here next year. (that is very classy, for a future physician) 4) Student "UNMC is very competitive, if you are the best you belong here, if not you - should apply to Creighton - they accept many average applicants" (Sure, this could be true but you dont say that, the practice of medicine is not just about MCATs and Grades but also who you are as a person and what you have overcome) To leave my mark, I got an acceptance to UNMC, but I will not take it, not for the academics but because of the students. I will attend FINCH in CHICAGO, let see how a Husker will enjoy the windy city." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had liked this place more. I went in with a pretty open mind, since it is my state school and I'm a pretty average pre-med student, but I really did not enjoy my interview there and I knew this was problematic since I generally like interviewing and meeting new people. The tour guides' commentary seemed canned, students there gave our tour group lots of weird glares, and I did not get the feeling that people were happy there. The school really did not make a good effort to make us want to come, and I think already having an acceptance allowed me to look more objectively at the school. I understand that my interviewer was really busy, but for gosh's sake don't pick an interviewer who has no time to do their interviewing job. Endlessly buzzing pagers are rude and distracting, as is a lack of preparation. Not a super-fun day but definitely enlightening. For anyone interviewing here do not expect much!!"

"I was not impressed with Nebraska, the new buildings were nice, but the rest was pretty bad. I had been at an earlier interview at another school and they really impressed me both the students and interviewers. Here I think most people students/interviewers/interviewies/ were very unprofessional. Basically this is a weird school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the inerviewer was weak and the students unhelpful. The only thing positive about the school was the admissions staff, the deans welcome and the financial aid lady. The interviews are too short and very ineffective. I am happy that a few blocks away there exists a very pleasant medical school----Go Creighton!!!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was not bad, the woman was nice but a bit slow.... The staff was cool and the Dean Dr. Hull I think seemed to be real nice and funny. The bad experience were the students. The were rude and thought they were the selected few special people. Simply they were just not pleasant to be around - Do they even now who they admit? Some of this kids are really not nice. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Decent school they interview basically everyone that applies, but give preferential treatment for those that are from Nebraska. I liked the guy that I interviewed with and the staff was sooooo nice and the food was well above average when it comes to medical school interviews. I should now since this was my 8 interview. Either way if you are not from NE your chances are slim. Seems to me UNMC wants to be something that it is not and that is a good medical school. Here are the reasons, 1) Students are not friendly to strangers (us) how will they react to their patients then!!! 2. Show all these new buildings but on the tour show us the s***iest classrooms. 3 "The Z-score does not bring any competition" by M2 "The z-score is hard to get used to, some take it too seriuosly" by M4. Basically the students dont like but dont want to say it. Anyway the schools seems to be filled with 4.0 students with horrible attitudes to patients............. My opinion...."

"This is an interview that you must prepare for, because your opportunity to make an impression is very short and absolutely crucial; everything depends on 1 person. They don't even look at your file, which I think is ridiculous. I understand that they do not want to have preconceptions about you, but this is an inefficient way to interview and just seems like a way to cut down on the time they spend." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience, very low stress and extremely friendly. The school facilities are not so nice, but they are building a new campus which will be completed in 2005. They seemed to match candidates with an approaopraite interviewer, for example, I'm a humanities major and they matched me with their humanities/ethics professor. If you want them to know about you ahead of time, call the office and emphasize that you definately want them to read your essay, it's all they'll get access to and only if you ask. If you feel that it's a good essay, it's to in your best interest to do so." More from this Member | Report Response
