What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview was a great experience. We all met in a room with the assistant dean, and we were able to ask him questions. He was very nice and very informed. We then went on the student led tours, including the anatomy lab. I was impressed because all the students seemed happy and friendly, and were constantly showing us their dissections and being excited. I love seeing students loving what they are learning. The hospital is a bit small, but friendly and "home-like" feeling. And their ER is trauma 1, so they see a lot of action. Overall, the interviews themselves were fantastic. Both were closed file, and all they had was my AMCAS personal statement and my name. Neither of my interviewers read my personal statement, so they entered blind (which is good....no pre-concieved notions). My last interviewer talked to me for an extra 20 minutes, and we had to be interrupted to be told our time was up!! I thought that was a good sign. The interviews were more like conversations, and not really "questions". I was confident, and answered directly and honestly, and I'm quite positive I rocked the interviews!! Overall, the experience was great. Everyone on staff seemed to be a real person, and I believe they really are trying to get the "whole person" instead of numbers. This is a school I would definitely love to attend." Report Response
