"I went through my application and made sure I could explain what I learned from each of my experiences and how it would help me as a physician. And I went over other questions I thought they might ask and read up on some ethical issues." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were very nice and friendly. The first thing they said when I walked in the room was that they wanted me to think of it as a laid back conversation to get to know each other rather than an interview." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. The tour given by first year students was pretty short, but I'm sure if I had wanted to see more of the school the students wouldn't have minded. They were very helpful and were willing to answer any questions or help us with anything we needed during the interview day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interview day was very short (less than 2 hours). We watched a 15 minute video about the school, did our interviews, and took about a 15 minute tour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview was very laid back. The interviewers seemed very easy going and tried to make it as low stress as possible. I hope to have them as professors! The patient centered learning curriculum seems great and it sounded like most of the students really like it." Report Response
