What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed my interview at UM. My interviewer was great and we ended having more of a nice conversation rather than a formal interview. I felt that my interviewer was there to really get to know ME and was not there to try to put me on the spot or stump me with difficult questions. It was a completely relaxed day with a great lunch. Students were extremely friendly. Many just stopped by Dr. Hinkley's office to say hi and to wish the interviewees luck with their interviews. UM has a new curriculum which the students seem to like more than the old one. They also get a lot of clinical experience within the first year. I was told that if you made the initiative, you could be delivering a baby as a first year med student!!! I would be honored to be a student at UM." Report Response
