Also, they do have everything in your file, except MCAT and GPA. Utah feels these last two credentials create bias in the interviews." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Studentdoctor.net, primary and secondary applications. Practiced questions usually asked to Utah applicants." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The detail that Utah goes into in order to select their students. Some may say that it is long and drawn out, however, I think it's actually beneficial in order to surface the most qualified applicants. After interviewing, some applicants are notified of their acceptance early, but a majority tend to find out around April." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. There are a lot of opportunities at the University of Utah." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There were no surprises." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Utah has an excellent school. Something I'm really looking for in a school is how unified students are. I thought Utah would have a very competitive environment, however, several students stated that one of their favorite things about Utah is the non-competitive aspect between classmates. I think this fosters a better learning environment for me. The only person I'm competing with is myself." Report Response
