What impressed you positively?

"I sat in on an anatomy lecture, it was great. Very entertaining, not intimidating. The school has a great curriculum and the students seem very happy and cooperative. It's a true pass/fail system so there is no competition between the student body. A great place to go to med school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewer was ruthless. He must have had a bad day; the secretary described him as "very nice," but instead he needled me incessantly about my shortcomings, dismissed my strengths as irrelevant, only asked questions about weaknesses in my file, and could not tell me anything about Case's med program. I'll be lucky to get waitlisted." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you have a bad interview, TELL THE DEAN. He set up another one for me later that day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was thoroughly impressed with Case's med school, there was nothing about it I didn't like. At least until the interview... Most people liked their interviewers, saying they were friendly and laid-back. Not me, I suppose I was unlucky. But if you think you were treated unfairly, the dean will give you another interview."
