What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"After doing all the other things you have in medicine, why do you want to be a doctor now?" Report Response

"How are you going to be able to deal with going to class with all these "kids" at your age?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed AMCAS ans secondary apps, SDN, read through all the schools posted and mailed literature, MSAR." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The gross anatomy lab, the newer feel of the buildings which allow you to stay inside during bad weather and get to where you need to be (it's a circle of buildings)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that they are in class essentially from 8am to 5 pm 5 days a week. They realize the error of this and how it turns a lot of applicants off and they are trying to change it, but the changes won't happen for years to come. Many of the students seem worn out and openly voice their disgust for the curriculum. But they will also tell you that most went to NEOUCOM because they didn't get in anywhere else. (This only pertains to the 4 year MD program, not the combined 6 year BS/MD program.)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my interviewers would be a female family practice doctor that was a NEOUCOM grad, and that the other would be a basic sciences professor of Neurobiology. No big deal, it just would have been nice. Also, they called that same night to tell me I was accepted. I liked the fact that they don't drag it out like everywhere else." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It neither impressed me, nor deterred me from wanting to go there. I have multiple acceptances from other Ohio schools, so I went to give the place a chance. But it doesn't look like I'll be going there." Report Response
