"This website as well as talking to a 1st year student here for advice." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Even though I'm a senior here now, I haven't spent much time at the med school despite the fact that its on campus. I was thoroughly impressed with the southern hospitality and the laid-back atmosphere of the interviewers as well as the employees at the admissions office." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"As you've read before, the construction is rather awful, but they say its going to be cleaned up by the fall, including a new building for M1 students. But, I've also heard that the dental school will be undergoing construction soon, so don't get your hopes up." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The breakdown of in-state vs. out of state students who are admitted. Being a public school, I knew that most students were from NC, but I was suprised to hear that a large majority of students, more than I thought, were admitted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my third interview of the fall, and my third of the north carolina schools. I am currently a senior here now, so there weren't many suprises as to the location and the beauty of chapel hill (with the exception of the construction happening now). I was a bit distressed to hear that both of my interviewers could not interview me that day, and I had to be changed to two other people during the course of the day. There was also a lot of down time between interviews and after lunch. The school, however, is well-respected and the students really seem to be encouraging and delighting in their studies (as much as one can during med school). All in all, I think this school is probably my number one choice considering the new facilities, the price for in-state, and the prestige UNC has around the state as well as the country."
