What impressed you positively?

"The school is really nice. Although, don't bring wintergreen candy to the cadaver lab even if you aren't eating it... ;) I did very much appreciate the fact that you could ask the students anything you wanted without it getting back to the admissions committee. The adcom staff were EXTREMELY helpful and kept me informed throughout the entire process." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Sudden changes in the way the interviews went - they would ask a couple easy questions, then slam dunk you with something that made your mind change gears. The student lounge is tiny for the # of students :) but I guess you get to know a everyone that way. Parking for students seemed pretty "lean", but I come from an area that is not as urban as lexington, so I am probably biased." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"(see my negative impression...) Make SURE you know where you are going before the interview, if I hadn't given myself a full hour to get the 5 miles to the parking structure, the construction and me getting turned around (and typical college traffic) would have made me late." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First interviewer was very laid back, second interviewer was tough. I kind of got the impression they were only interviewing me because they were morbidly curious about my gpa/mcat scores, although that surely can't be the case - as granting interviews to someone with no intention of admitting them would be a terrible waste of time and effort. I was eventually rejected due to grades, never quite understood why you'd get an interview if you were going to get kicked because of scores... The whole interview process lasted just 4 hours and they fed us before the tour. I enjoyed it very much. Also, the students were very upbeat about their school and there did seem to be comaraderie(sp?) there. Overall, I wish they had accepted me :D - To those reading this - Good Luck!" Report Response
