What impressed you positively?

"The students are all incredibly welcoming and open. Faculty seems the same; a few people actually received books or flashcards written by the profs - the woman who coordinated the interviews that day said that happened pretty frequently, students stop by and introduce themselves and ask if people have questions for them. This is seriously the best placed waiting area for interviews -- directly between the hospital/student lounge area/classrooms." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much (see below)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"After staying with a host and asking a lot of questions, having 3 interviews exhausts you of questions that day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had to fill out a short questionnaire and email it back to the school a few days prior to the interview. Interviewers are given that + 4 activities (you write them down), and I'm assuming interviewers may or may not read them. Had 3 interviewers: 2 with docs, student interviews are scheduled as possible (some applicants had them; others did not). Last on avg they say 45 min. One went over an hour, one was about an hour, another was maybe shorter than the 45 min. though I'm sure this is the exception, I did have an interviewer who asked me about my MCAT scores even though it's a blind interview and the dean tells you earlier that day that the interviews are supposed to not be concerned with numbers (fyi). Otherwise, interviewers were really open and asked intriguing questions. Very warm people overall - students and faculty." Report Response
