How did you prepare for the interview?

"Talked to students who attend the school, and faculty who have graduated from or teach at the school. MSAR was of limited help, the school website was more helpfull. The tour (before the interview) was the most imformative and gave me alot to talk about during the interview. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was very nice. The student tour guides really loved thier school, and it showed. The interview was not stressfull at all and at times took on a more conversational tone about my views on medicine, ethics, the health care system, science, etc. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. It is not a problem for me, but they do not (yet) have any campus housing. They will help you find housing of course. Living in Newark has its own pros and cons. The campus is very safe though and has good (and rather friendly) security. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The MSAR does not cover the most recent changes (made in 7-04) made to the Art of Medicine course (now known as the doctoring course) and is one of the best parts of the education at UMDNJ-NJMS. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The staff, tour guides, and interviewer were very nice. The whole experiance was very un-stressful. The interview had a conversational tone to it at times, and I could direct the topic of conversation to those areas of medicine and health that were most important to me. " Report Response
