""We know you have the academics and qualifications to pursue medicine, what are you going to do/who will you turn to when you are faced with the most challenging times in medicine when your overwhelmed with the information ahead of you?"" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read the web site. Stayed the night at a student's apartment. Picked his brain about the school. I would recommend this for anyone travelling a distance to come here." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were neat, only 4 students per cadaver. The faculty and student body is extremely friendly and supporting. The area and resources available are awesome. The curriculum is unique from typical medical schools and geared towards my interests. You are a commissioned officer with full benefits while you are studying here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Without housing all students must find apartments. The university will help locate, but the area is extremely $$$. Also, the closer you are the more $$$ it is. While you are paid, it takes a large chunk of your pay. The commute is something I don't like either. It can be a hellish commute to school if your running late for some reason." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews, each one half hour long. Typically, there is a 4th year student and then a practicing military physician O-3 or above. Even though the campus is small and compact it is extremely easy to get disorientated. When you park in the lot, remember where you park!" Report Response
