What impressed you positively?

"The hospitals surrounding the school seemed well-developed and very busy. In addition, the student who ate lunch with us was awesome. He was very positive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The size of the school, probability of getting placed in places like Gary, uniformity in the student population, location of the school, age of some of the buildings at which lectures are held, and the waiting time during the interview day. I also feel that my interviewer did not take the time to read my file before my interview. Maybe he did, but he did not make any references to my personal statement and he asked me questions that were directly answered in my file. He was also late." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I would have known that almost every in-state applicant gets interviewed. I also wish I would have known that IUSM interviews countless out-of-state applicants, yet they accept only 15 or so (is it just me, or is this a waste of time and money for the nonresident applicants?)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I don't know if I would attend this school. The faculty seem a bit out of touch with the students, probably because there are so many students. For being the only medical school in the state of Indiana, they should be both better ranked and better in quality of education, since all of the state's medical education funds are allocated to one institution, i.e., IUSM."
