What impressed you positively?

"The Twin Cities (Minneapolis & St. Paul) have a huge breadth of health care facilities, all of which are open to having students do rotations there. The facilities and faculty are available for students to explore interests in primary care, rural medicine (one of the best programs in the U.S. for this), urban medicine, clinical/lab research, international medicine both locally (large immigrant population in Minnesota, esp. Hmong & Somali) and abroad." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day was not particularly well organized. There is 1 interview, which is immediately after you arrive, but no one was sure if we were supposed to go to the room (some of which were on the other side of the school) or wait for the interviewer to pick us up. There was also some down time during which nothing was scheduled - the office sent us down to sit in on a lecture." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers don't get your scores or grades, only the responses to the essay questions, which they have looked over beforehand. Know thyself, and know thy application, too!" Report Response
