What are your general comments?

"UMich is a great school with great people, though some applicants were stuck up, others were really nice. The interviewers thoroughly look over your application beforehand. It seems like everyone wants the already great med school to get better. They are highly regarded by residency directors, but the number of hospital beds at Ann Arbor doesn't compare to, say, Miami. Overall, everything was great, the food (better than usual, at least), the people, the facilities, and the town. But the email they send you right before the interview is kinda intimidating: it's all about what not to do on the interview day. " Report Response
