What impressed you positively?

"The interview day did NOT impress me...however, I found this out another day (Open House)...nice histo lab where everything is on computer, very friendly students who seemed very willing to work together and help each other out." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"A lot! The interview day was VERY unstructured and they did not provide any additional information (except for fin aid) about the COM. Nothing about life in Lansing or information on the school. There was a short tour, but we did not see the lecture hall, histo lab, anatomy lab, or other labs. There was also 2 hours between the tour and fin aid until my interview and they did not plan any activity for me to do. And, seeing that I was the only one who was left before my interview, I was bored sitting in the room by myself! The student said the anatomy lab cadavers were old (the school keeps them longer than they should) and the anatomy lab was very crowded with both COM and CHM students." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Planing a new location in MI near Troy. The COM wants to increase their enrollment, and plans to do so starting this year, but admitted that they do not have a lecture hall big enough for the increase in the number of students and the CHM students. All rotations are done in MI and they encourage students to stay in MI to practice. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very stressful because of the person who I interviewed with. I am pretty sure that she was not allowed to ask me about past and present relationships, but she spent a lot of time on this subject. I think that it might have been more of a stress interview, because although the interview was not positive (or at least not as positive as others I have been on), I was accepted a week later :)" Report Response
