What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty all seemed to like each other and to be happy to be attending school at ETSU. The facilities were new and the scenery was beautiful." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of my interviewers was a second year med student. I didn't feel he was very qualified to know if I'd succeed as a physician or not, especially since he seemed intent on showing off how much more than me he knew. He also had not read any of the preparatory material, which I took to mean that he really wasn't that dedicated to his job as an interviewer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers had no prior access to any information other than my AMCAS essay, so it was up to me to inform them as to certain things I felt were important. I actually appreciated that, since it gave the interviewers the chance to actually get to know me rather than to pick over minutae in my application. Everyone at the school was very positive and although one of my interviewers was less than impressive, I felt the day went well." Report Response
