What impressed you positively?

"The guy that interviewed me was Dr. Bloch. He's an immunologist I believe and he is married to a woman who graduated from Howard med. He is a really cool guy. He is very, very laid back. He doesnt speak down to you. He'll even tell you what he thinks of you. He even told me that he thought my file was really good and if someone thought otherwise, they were out of their mind!

What are your general comments?

"I think this was my best med school experience so far (honestly). I was the only person at my interview so things went by really fast. ALSO, for those of you that are getting interviewed really late (say in May or June)...or who havent receieved an interview yet....Howard is usually very backed up so dont be surprised if you are like me and get an interview in June. The student guide took me the anatomy lab, the new library (wow, its sooo nice), and the various facilities. OVerall, my impression of the school was good. Dont be intimidated and nervous! I know I was and there was NO reason for it. Unlike other schools, it seems HOward's interview is just really to get to know you better. They dont scrutinize you with unwarranted ethics questions and other meritless questions. SO just be yourself and show them that you really have a desire and motivation to help the underserved!"
