What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is a group exercise in which you must work together as a team and problem solve. One person must be a leader, and the remainder must work well with that person and each other. It is a timed exercise and they highly frown upon the group not solving the problem (which consists of composing various lists for medical practices, etc.) in the alotted amount of time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a good cop/bad cop interview, which I thought had gone out with the dark ages. One interviewer, a very short, egotistical man, spent 30 minutes trying to piss me off with questions about AIDS, religion, and homosexuality (don't ask me why, I'm not gay nor appear to be). The next interviewer patronized me and spent the better part of the interview asking me philosophical questions that had little to do with anything. Overall, the interview experience, though I felt I did very well, was the worst of my medical school application process. I was accepted at several other schools, and not at CU, and had the worst experience of my life there. By the time I left I wanted nothing to do with the place." Report Response
