How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN. Re-read AMCAS activities, personal statement, and secondary essays. Looked at everything on school's website. Thought of how I would answer typical interview questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Faculty has a lot of enthusiasm about the school. I like the emphasis on the interdisciplinary atmosphere by working with other health career students (PT, nursing, etc.). Emphasis on holistic medical care - even the person who the school is named after, Netter, was a medical artist/illustrator - which I think is pretty unique and speaks to their holistic approach. Capstones project sounds very cool, and there are a lot of interesting options for it." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Immediate surrounding area is a bit dull and very suburban. Has a commuter school feel, since there doesn't seem to be any housing options within walking distance to the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Interviews with the two faculty members were very positive, very laid back and friendly (and were ~30-45 minutes). Interview with the dean was a little more serious, lasted maybe 15 minutes, and he didn't express as much emotion/positive feedback as the other interviewers - but don't take that as a bad sign (I was accepted)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are definitely positives and negatives if you choose to be part of a charter class. It is very exciting but also poses challenges. The faculty were all very honest about this sentiment. Ultimately I think this will be a great school, and the challenges are opportunities!" Report Response
