What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I love the area. The building is amazing. The students are all very friendly and willing to help first year students. Our tour guides told us they hold sessions before anatomy tests and help you review. They stay until you understand everything. Not many other schools have that nice of students. Also, during OMM lab you get a new partner every week whereas other schools only switch once a semester. The anatomy course is the 2nd best program in the US with the most contact hours."

What are your general comments?

"When I arrived at the school everyone was sitting in around tables and we got a chance to talk with some students. Then we had some presentations and a slide show about the school to watch. They actually gave us times that are interviews were supposed to be, however there was a possibility for delay. After the presentations, a group of us went on a tour which was excellent. The current students answered any questions anyone had. As soon as we got back from the tour it was time for my interview, so I didn't even have a chance to get nervous. The interview was much more relaxed than my other interview. It was mostly just a conversation. They asked me questions about my college since I am not from around New England as well as my trip to Maine. They also asked about many of the unqiue experiences on my application. All of the questions seemed to be very much related to each indiviual's application. There weren't really that many direct questions, it was more like... tell me about this. As soon as the interview was over we were allowed to leave which was nice because it allowed me to start on my long trip a little earlier. I really loved the school and sent my 1st deposit in at the end of December (2 deposits totaling $1,500). When I was first picking schools I asked my advisor if I should apply to UNECOM, she told me to go ahead and I am so glad a did. The school has a small setting and you will be known by your name not a serial number. I am very excited to start med school at UNECOM!! " Report Response
