What impressed you positively?

"The school has ridiculously good facilities and research. The clinical training is superb and the professors and deans I met really seemed to care about the students and their overall success. Definitely seemed like a family atmosphere. Ann Arbor is probably the best college town in America during the summer." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The administration is caught up in rankings. I heard some aspect of UM's US News ranking in this category or that about 10 times. It even showed up on this practice quiz they make you take during the computer facilities tour. I mean, everyone looked at US News before applying to UM, so they know its good, no need to indoctrinate it any further. That's my only complaint though, the school seemed really friendly and academically motivated overall. I couldn't find the match list in my packet for some reason either." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How spread out UM campus is. Then again, for a school of that size and reputation, I guess you have to be that big." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview definitely pushed UM up the list of schools I want to attend, its a fantastic school with great resources and faculty. The cost and the weather, in that order, are the only things that are worrisome about the school. Everything else seems top notch. I think UM is a great place to get a medical education. Also, it seems like a lot of Cali students go there, so there might be something to that for Cali applicants trying to find some out of state alternatives. But definitely check the place out if you get an interview, its extremely friendly and a beautiful place. It is for sure in the upper eschelon of medical schools from what I have seen.
