What impressed you negatively?

"Day is longer than it needs to be. Many of the speakers were given more time than they needed and overlapped one another. Also, the tours were not great, but I'm not really sure how they could be improved, specifically." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Interviewers are very interested in finding out how the military works. There really wasn't any time left for any of the "standard" interview questions." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There was a group of about 20 interviewees. Day began at 9:15. The entire morning was spent on presentations about the school, admissions, financial aid, etc. I learned a few things and liked what I heard, but it dragged a little. We heard from current students during lunch, and they seemed very happy. (They were getting free food out of the deal.) The afternoon consisted of 4 one-hour blocks. Two were spent interviewing and the other two were tours of the medical school and hospital. Interviews were given by ADCOM members, some of which are students. One of my interviews was traditional. The other took place in the OR, which was interesting, but didn't afford much time to talk. The nicest thing about the process is that they interview on Friday, meet on Monday, and letters go out on Tuesday. Nice to get a quick response. I had my acceptance six days after my interview."
