"The school in general, great facilities, connected to three nationally known hospitals with a number of other medical facilities located w/in walking distance. Also, if you are interviewed you have an extremely high chance of getting accepted. At this point they don't look at the numbers anymore, it's just based on your interview." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing much.....I pretty much knew what to expect so I was not disappointed by anything" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My first interview with the doctor was very relaxed. I didn't even feel like I was having an interview. It was only about 20 minutes and more of a conversation; he asked me very general questions. On the other hand, the student was a lot more intense with a lot more harder questions, such as the social security one. He also grilled me about my mcat score and lack of research experience and then after I answered told me that at this point they didn't really matter anyway. After awhile though it got more relaxed and we started talking about the Milwaukee bars and snowboarding." Report Response
