How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read feedback from this site, read "The D.O.s", re-read my essays, read up on current events, reviewed UHS's website, talked to current students." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is pretty, the facilities are very nice and they are building a new life sciences research building (it's encouraging to see the campus growing even though the economy isn't doing so great). The students were very friendly and the student ambassadors who led the campus tour were very helpful and positive. The board pass rate under the new Genesis 2000 curriculum is impressive--97.6 pass on the first try. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing--I felt that what I had learned from UHS's webpage and conversations with students gave me a very good idea of what to expect. It was everything I expected and better." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I interviewed with a retired D.O. and with the chair of the anatomy department. The retired D.O. was a bit hard of hearing, so I had to speak loudly and repeat myself a few times. He was very friendly and approachable, but he kept interrupting me while I was trying to answer his questions, so I am a little worried that I didn't communicate as much to my interviewers as I would have liked. The anatomy prof was also very friendly, though a little tougher on me. It was a bit awkward after I got asked if I had interviewed elsewhere & what that outcome was (I interviewed at the University of Kansas, also, and did not get accepted there). They got into a discussion about the mentality of that school and whether UHS gets KU's rejects. I really disliked this characterization since I applied to both schools at the same time and was much more impressed with UHS, and, given acceptances at both places, would choose UHS. I was very nervous when I went into the interview, but my interviewers really set me at ease." Report Response
