How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over some basic questions, read over school information; I should have prepared better for my first interview, but I was very busy getting my thesis together at the same time." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The clinical experiences beginning in first year. The technology labs with the mannekins were amazing; I like that they use standardized patients and make it a formal, mock-office visit" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The immediate area surrounding the campus; I didn't have much time to tour Louisville, but even though the immediate vicinity didn't have too much going for it, I was assured the rest of the city was nicer" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing; everything went well." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a great day; I showed up extra early because I flew in, and the admissions office staff was very helpful in directing me to a local drugstore to pick up a few things and letting me store my carry-on bag in the office. Since I had a late flight out as well, my second interviewer even gave me a private tour of the hospitals on campus as he was on his way to a meeting." Report Response
