What impressed you positively?

"The admissions director Mr. Scott was really nice. Two of my interviewers were clinicians and the third was a faculty member. All of them seemed involved with the student body and really liked what they are doing. The chocolate cake for lunch was definitely a plus. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is so much driving! As a result, I was practically late to almost all my interviews because one was held at the Women's and Children's hospital and another in the medical school buildings. The directions to buildings are confused, so if you can, orient yourself prior to interviewing on general directions from the school to hospitals. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I didn't feel that I had unidirectional interview questions but more of a conversation experience. The clinicians were interested in what types of clinical experience that I'd had and talked a lot about what they did. They asked me about my GPA and academic history - I have a somewhat untraditional academic background. " Report Response
