What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

What was the most interesting question?

"None...they were the exact same questions everyone else got that reported here." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Same as above." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, talked with students I know that go there, reviewed application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Their ISP and PBL programs are their saving grace. I can't imagine being a student in their lecture based program. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Too many rules. I felt like the staff/faculty treat their students like they are in high school. Attendance at class is mandatory, dress code, no food/drink in lecture rooms. We are paying money to attend and have obviously handled the independence through college, why go back to childish rules? " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you are accepted there, you have to pay a $1500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to hold your place! It goes toward tuition if you choose to go there but what if you were between a couple of schools and had to wait. That is absurd and, quite honestly, seems like it's taking advantage of the applicants. None of the other schools I've interviewed with (allopathic) have this requirement." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The students that I met were great, but I felt bad for them for having to deal with such a stiff environment. The interview was with three people asking various questions off a sheet of paper and no conversational feedback...wake up, Erie, find a better way to get to know your applicants. I hope they read this site so they can revamp their process. It is a good school despite their lost touch with reality." Report Response
