What impressed you positively?

"how much everyone truly loves this school - the skyrocketing satisfaction rates are no joke! people really came out of their way to welcome us, tell us about their experiences and why they liked USUHS, even when the big brass wasn't around. also, my interview group was amazing... so many different kinds of people - civilians, service academy students, a navy SEAL, an army delta force guy, a submarine officer. briefings were very informative, staff and students are really friendly and they emphasize the family/support network of the military, definitely allayed a lot of my concerns." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"relatively small school, everyone wears camo's everyday" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"very high acceptance rates from the interview stage on.... they say they interview around 500-600, and accept 400 (for a final class of 160-some). reassuring. also, was not aware of the BLS/ALS/critical cardiac care certification for all students, it was really interesting.... 4th year USUHS students have the trauma/emergency med skills of 2nd year residents" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was interested in this school before, but after interview day it is definitely now my #1 choice. people are really happy here. cheesy as it sounds, there is a big sense of community/cooperation between not only students, but students and staff as well. it's surreal... you are walking and working among some fascinating people, it almost feels like you've stepped into a movie sometimes with the backgrounds they have. not really sure how things work out here in terms of relationships.... a lot of married students with families already, and they really do a lot to support you and help make things work. but for singles...? few women, very diverse population so not really sure about how much inter-dating."
