"Both of my interviewers were very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me. The MS-4 who interviewed me really seemed to like the school and was very open and honest about UNSOMs programs. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers did have identical lists of questions to ask me, which was a little off-putting. But we got fairly sidetracked in both interviews talking about my research and clinical experiences anyway." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a great experience. The interviewers were very friendly and personable. They made me very comfortable and were never confrontational or rude. My faculty interviewer did ask some ethical questions and defended views opposite to mine, but in an 'i want to challenge you to think' way not an 'i think you're wrong way'. I had a great experience and think that attending UNSOM would be a very positive experience. " Report Response
