"n/a" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, went over my AMCAS and SAF. But the whole interview process is so laid back all you need to do is have a vague idea of what you wrote about yourself." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The overall enthusiasm every student possessed towards the school. And Dr. Hawkins! 5 student run clinics. A million and one ways to volunteer in the community. The study abroad opportunities, research opportunities (though my interviewer insinuated I would only be able to do any of these during the summer after first year), the new MPH program focusing on global health (though there is no way to know how the program is ranked, obviously)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

" Virtually no electives offered; Lack of forthrightness, e.g. no mention of being sent all over the state during your third year (admin made it sound like it was a choice). Also there was a shortage of third and fourth year students to talk to, but an abundance of first years (no offense, but how much can I learn about med school from a first year?)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The genuine concern faculty have for students; the high pass rate of USMLE step 1; the camaraderie between students; how picturesque the school is; how dependent med students are on undergrads to provide entertainment on the weekends" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I attended a diversity recruitment interview weekend and encountered a truly diverse group of students: out-of-staters, minorities, parents, non-trad etc. We spent the whole weekend with students who mirrored us exactly. Unfortunately, this group makes up a tiny fraction of the school." Report Response
