What impressed you positively?

"Colorado has tremendous access to the outdoors. The facilities are top notch." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The students seemed one-dimensional...this is not your place if diversity is important. Also, the admissions guy that spoke to us before and in between our interviews was easily the biggest idiot that I have encountered on my interviews. He reminded me of David Brent from "The Office." A complete moron that was made a terrible first impression." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That only 15% of the class is out of state. I knew this, and how it would impact my chances. But I did not think how it would effect the class composition." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had mentioned a potential interest in Colorado's exposure to rural medicine (I never said that I definitely wanted to practice rural medicine). The interviewer basically said that a lot of people BS that rural medicine angle, then pressed me really hard to see if I was lying. I'm sure I answered his questions fine, but it was just awkward and left a bad taste in my mouth." Report Response
