"Interview & people!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didnt really enjoy doing the tour with 3 other med students. I had a long drive the night before and then the early morning tour; I wanted to stay focused on my primary aim the interview. I wish I could have scheduled the tour some other time. Its too time consuming, I was totally disinterested and lost my focus due to my primary aim being the interview, and just wanted to relax more in the morning instead of arriving early for the tour. Also, the nerves of other med students waiting with you make your process a little more discomforting, its hard to remain detached from it all. My suggestions: If you can, you should request to just not attend the tour and schedule it some other time, like after you are accepted and then when you evaluate your plans to attend this particular school!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Make sure you know where you wish to practice your clinical rotations your 3rd & 4th year; there are 3 options: Morgantown, Charleston, and eastern Panhandle. If you dont, it will be very difficult to make a change later. MOrgantown is very fast paced-challenging and stimulating lifestyle, in a hospital based trauma 1 care. Charleston and E.P are both primary healthcare areas. Its easier to switch from Morgantown to the other 2; then vice versa!" Report Response
