What impressed you positively?

"Facilities are nice, lots of technology. Students were very laid back. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I heard that other med schools in the area make fun of students here, but after coming here I dont really understand why... You have to have a car by your 3rd year. I am not sure if i got the best vibes from the current students. Not many attend class, the ones I spoke with dont seem as dedicated as some students at other schools, but they were from the post-bacc program, so that could be why." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That no one stayed for the optional PIL information session. All it really is is some student that will come talk to you, and I got that info from the host i stayed with, so I could have taken a way earlier flight home. The PIL and IFM students kinda dont have any contact with one another, they both think that the other curriculum is weird (IFM thinks PIL is easier bc less exams and stuff, PIL thinks that IFM is lame bc its just some one feeding you the information you need to know, you get a big stack of notes and study from there)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was really nice and friendly. She did a lot of the talking at the beginning and did not really ask too many questions about my application, we got off that subject quite a bit. My student interview was kinda random. I overheard him telling his friend how he was so hungover from last nite and so prepared for the occasion (he like rolled out of bed to come interview and have a free lunch). He said it would be nothing to worry about, but asked kinda serious questions because that was what was on the paper. Its quite awkward to talk and eat in such a loud crowded cafeteria, but I was kinda prepared for that after reading these comments." Report Response
