"What questions do you have for me? I had been all questioned out." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This website and the school's." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"That would be everything. I dare you to find something negative about this place. It has a warm, caring environment exuded by faculty, staff, and students. Brand new facilities, technologically ahead of many other schools I've visited. The only Ronald McDonald Children's Hospital in the country, amazing VA hospital. Many mentors for first years for support and exposure to different clinical experiences (one is a chaplain). Concurrently earn your Masters in bioethics! I couldn't find this anywhere else. Also, the dean meets with every interviewer individually to answer any questions. Very personable, as were both my interviewers." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"see above" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing--visit their website, it's very thorough" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I know on this website a lot of people have said about other schools that they were relaxed. However, there really was no comparison between the other schools I visited that these students said were "friendly," and the actual warmth I experienced from my interviewers. Maybe we just clicked, but I really felt comfortable, like they weren't evaluating me at all, just trying to understand me. They did touch on some ethical issues and research-related questions. It showed they still did care you had logical opinions about what's going on in the world." Report Response
