What impressed you negatively?

"Intro to school by CEO--felt like a bad info-mercial. He quizzed the group about the history of Osteopathic medicine by calling on people by name. Also, during the interview day they bring you across the street to an apartment complex that was previously a hospital. It felt like they were trying to sell you a place to live before you could even decide if you wanted to be there. I felt like it was a big money making scheme." Report Response

"They grade on a bell curve...a failing grade is two standard deviations below the mean. They have a dress code--professional dress or scrubs at all times. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I left UHS with a bad taste in my mouth. The interview was very laid back, but I felt like it was too short in comparison to the entire day I spent there. I felt like the interviewers didn't have anything to ask me about because the interview was open file. I received an acceptance 11 days later. " Report Response
