What impressed you positively?

"The interview was awesome. Very friendly and open interviewers, and mine went really well. Seems like they just want to get to know you a bit." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Well compared to other schools UAMS day is rather poor. The presentation on the history of UAMS is pretty boring/irrelevant. The whole day seemed less focused on impressing applicants than some other schools. I'm not too enthused about the fact that they're switching curriculum style in what would be my second year.. guinea pig anyone? New construction is coming, but may not be usefull to me. The hospital is obviously not as impressive as some others i've visited. That said, they are probably not as worried about impressing you b/c of their focus on AR applicants. However I feel this is a disservice to the school in regards to the top applicants who will get in somewhere else." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"n/a" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"UAMS has a rather unique interview style. Normally 2 doctors/faculty and a possible med student for some people interview you for 1 hour. Also it is closed file. All they know about you is your name and undergrad school I think. So you get to talk for 30 mins at least about just what you did, where youre from, etc that at other schools they already know. So it makes it easy for the applicant in that respect." Report Response
