What impressed you positively?

"How nice everybody was, you can ask students anything about the school (good and bad) and they are very honest in their answers. The interview is very easy going, I felt like I was there for 5 minutes when it was actually 30-35. Also, the school is not in the best neighborhood but once you step on campus, it is beautiful, they really take care of their facilities. The school was quick to send information and answer any questions you had in the meantime after the interview. I found out that I was accepted by one small letter in the mail a week later. Oh and I forgot, I loved being fitted for my white coat before the interview, talk about motivation....:-)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Walking across the street in the freezing rain to look at an apartment building, I would have much rather looked at it on my own on a better day. It was funny though because everyone had to wait to go to their interview right afterwards, we were all wet and cold so it made a good conversation piece to open up the interview. Also, the people who interviewed me seemed to be new faculty members and they were pretty young. I was kind of afraid to go into too much detail with my answers because I felt that it might have been over-their-head or might even have confused them. This really made me question the professionalism of the medical school program in general. It sounds stupid, but I would have rather been interviewed by a physician and/or professor. I was ready for difficult questions." Report Response

"To Relax, (really, relax) it was a great experience, everyone was nice and very easy to talk to. " Report Response
