What impressed you positively?

"I liked the feel of the interview. It was less academically oriented but rather focused on getting to know me, what kind of a person i was, what i liked. It left me with an impression that the admissions board is more likely to view the applicate as a whole person rather than a test score or a GPA average. The entire process left me with an impressions that the medical students got a lot of support from the staff and faculty there. Everyone during the whole day was very helpful and positive." Report Response

"Overall, it was not very intimiating, unlike many other medical schools. After the interview, i left with a positive outlook and a feeling that people there would genuinely cared about my well-been as a med student. Unlike other schools, the admissions process was clearly explained and not kept as a close-guarded secret. At no point did anyone make me feel like I was wasting their time. The interviewees were never in a rush and gave me ample time to answer. One interviewee even gave me some advice on med school should i attend next year." Report Response
