"You're working in a rurual clinic and only have one dose of a medicine to cure a particular disease. All of the sudden, two ambulances roll up--one is an 80 year old and the other is a 20 year old and they need this medication to survive. What would you do?" Report Response

"Read this website, reviewed my application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The day was fairly organized and lunch was good" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The only benefit they give for going there is the cheap tuition. That's the only reason, in their minds, that you should want to go there. They didn't talk at all about their students' success on the boards or anything else like that. It was all about tuition. The facilities are subpar at best." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they discount LDS mission experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had two other interviews at better schools and was way more impressed with them than I was with the U. If it weren't for the fact that all my family is from Utah I wouldn't even consider going here. One of my interviews was with a lady who spoke horrible English. I had to ask her to repeat most of her questions several times, and I speak a couple of languages fleuntly and have no problem understanding most accents. She also tried to tell me things about the U that I know aren't true (for example, professors teach all their undergrad classes--bullsh**) They did a lousy job of "selling" their school to me."
