What impressed you negatively?

"My student interviewer busted my balls quite a bit (see above questions) and also commented that the school was much like high school with the cliques. Also, if your interview is not at the admissions office they don't show you were it is you have a map and are supposed to figure it out." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a good experience, the faculty interview was fairly straight forward, but the student interviewer "was trying a few new questions" which were to test if I was able to think outside of the medical realm. I wasn't expecting that so just be prepared. The girl who interviewed before me did not mention about the student's questions so I want to give you guys the opportunity I did not have to prepare for those type of questions. :)" Report Response
