What impressed you positively?

"My interviewers were awesome. One was a really down to earth ER doc and the other was an equally affable ped. urologist. Both of them were very nice, asked meaningful questions, and allowed the interview to flow. At one point the ER doc and I got to talking about some peripheral topic and I said something to the effect of "At some point here we're going to have to get back to the interview" to which he responded, "this is the interview."" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students giving the tour were very nice people, but the seemed unimpressed with the school. This is probably b/c I was comparing them to tour guides at other schools that were so passionate about their institution. The MS1s doing out tour spent alot of time griping about things that weren't cool about the school. Also, they are not big on anatomy at all. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"MU's lack on emphasis on anatomy." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Much less structured than any other interview I've been to. No presentations or anything like that, no lunch with students, perfunctory tour. I would say I enjoyed the experience more b/c I had interesting conversations with my interviewers than because I was really impressed with the school." Report Response
