What impressed you positively?

"There's really nothing negative to say about UM. The whole day was put together wonderfully. The day started with random medical students coming in to greet you as well as make you feel at home. Everybody was really cordial and friendly and appeared genuinely interested in getting to know you. Everyone from Dr. Hinkley, the secretaries, and the physician who interviewed me definintely were nice people who were more interested in you having a positve and enjoyable experience at their school. In terms of training and clinical contact, I dont think there is another school that could compare to the extensiveness of clinical exposure or sheer amount of patient contact. As it is one the busiest hospitals in the nation Im sure you will be leaving that medical school well trained and informed. In a nutshell, the whole experience was wonderful, facilities were great and on the cutting edge (with adding new buildings and technology), and probably most importantly, the people there from med students to faculty were 100% top notch in way of friendliness, professionalism, and personalities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I have to say that there aren't many negative things to say about the school. I know it sounds wierd and after reading the so many other student experiences about how great this place was, etc. etc., I have to hop on the band wagon and truthfully tell you that this place is incredible and I just hope I get in! However, if I must think of anything negative, it would be having to wait until early March before finding out the outcome!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How friendly and laid back everyone is. Compared to my other interview, everyone seemed so happy and friendly. At the other school I couldn't see myself realistically "hanging" with those students, but at UM - they are definitely my type of people and I can definitely see myself forming good friendships there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"What's there to say besides the fact that the school is amazing with a great reputation, the hospital is one of the best in the nation, and the people as friendly as you will find anywhere. " Report Response
