What are your general comments?

"Very positive experience. I took a year off after graduating, and considered IUSM one of my backup schools. I physicians interviewing me were very nice despite the fact that I nearly missed the interview. They seemed interested in what I was doing during my year off and were very encouraging. The interview was very informal. The student ambassadors were genuinely excited about attending IU and said the staff was very supportive. One MS1 was allowed to take his finals a week late so he could fly to California for American Idol auditions. He said all his professors were very laid back about making up the tests. The financial aid officer was very informative and actually walked me to another building on campus to make sure I didn't get lost. IUSM is now near the top of my list." Report Response
