What impressed you positively?

"The cohesiveness of the classes (only 60 in each), and each Professor had an interest in each and ever one of their students. ALso, this seems to be as non-competative as you can get for a med school. And the anatomy labs and classrooms are all great, as the school is only a few years old. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the town. (6500 people) " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The faculty really really want you to stay in region after you finish school. They built the school there because they need doctors in that area, and really emphasized how they want you to stay. (of course you don't sign a contract or anything stating you will, but i think if they could , they would :) also, the shockingly low-stress level involved. The interviewers were the nicest , and most easy-going poeple that i have met. It was my first interview, and they made it completely painless. Go into it relaxed...nothing to worry about. :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Make sure you have questions ready. They really make every attempt to make it a conversation and not an interrogation. This is obvious, but be honest with everything. If they ask you what field you want to enter, and you don't know, say "I don't know" . I said i hadn't been exposed to enough to make that decision but i was debating family medicine, and they really seemed to not only appreciate the honesty, but sort of criticized those who already think they know what they are going to do."
