What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable right away. I'd heard that IU has pretty relaxed interviews, but everyone says it depends on your interviewer. My interviewer was phenomenal and conducted a very conversational interview. I was really relaxed, and she talked to me too (instead of just firing questions at me with no feedback). I was very impressed with my interviewer. Also, the med students there were really friendly and mingled with us, answering questions and giving us advice/insight. They were extremely helpful and candid." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I can't think of anything really..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It's ok to bring a big purse. :) I brought a little one that was just big enough to fit my mini travel umbrella (just in case it rained) and I also brought a padfolio. But honestly, no one really cares what you bring, as long as you look professional. So don't bring a backpack or something, but make sure you have a nice looking folder to hold the papers they give you and paper if you want to take any notes." Report Response
