What impressed you positively?

"The people involved in the interview day know how to make you feel really comfortable and special. You get a short "interview" (more like a chat) with a dean, which is very nice and low-stress. Also, the lunch was my favorite type... the kind where they give you a voucher and let you pick out yummy hot food from a cafeteria (no dry sandwiches and cookies in a box). The school really does have an amazing location... it's unbelievable that you could live right on a lake during med school! Also, you get to a mock PBL that day with your fellow interviewees, which is really fun. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"To facilitate the group interviews, they need to have a lot of people there in one day. i.e, it was a little crowded." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was a little apprehensive about the interview format because it is so unique and different. However, the interviewers were really nice and tried to put us at ease. The only thing is that the interview seems really variable because your interview can be positively/negatively affected by the people you are (randomly) put with. " Report Response
