What are your general comments?

"I am a senior medical student at NEOUCOM and went directly into the 6-year combined BS/MD program. Therefore, I interviewed as a senior in high school. I'm not sure how ready I was for interviewing for medical school but they somehow manage to bring the interviews to our level. There are three feeding universities (Univ of Akron, Kent State Univ and Youngstown State Univ) where you can apply to for 2-3 years of undergraduate studies. I applied to all three and was invited for all 3 interviews. Then, you get to rank them and they rank you (hmmm, think NRMP). I ended up at the Univ of Akron (Go Zips!) Depending on which ones you apply to and where you get interviews, you have to interview at the individual universities and not at the med school. You get a separate tour of the med school facilities at another time. From my experience - Univ of Akron were the most laid back but its supposed to be the most competitive. KSU had that "hand" question and seemed ok. YSU asks some tough questions and you have two separate interviews - one personal and one ethical." Report Response
