What are your general comments?

"It was very very cold. I stayed at the Hampton Inn North. This hotel was really nice but it was far from the school and anything to do. Because of the severe weather, I flew in a day early. I had nothing to do. It was a $20 cab ride to Millcreek Mall. It was $12 to the school. $16 from the school to the airport. Make sure to keep cash on you or try to find accomadations that are closer. We all met in a room first thing in the morning. No coffee, no donuts, no coordinator. Just a bunch of nervous students. Make sure to eat breakfast. We then took a tour of the school, led by a nice girl, not a student, but was married to a student. She was very easy to talk to and helped me relax as much as I could. We then listened to a financial aid talk and a talk about the city. No audiovisual or powerpoint or anything.....just listening to people give a memorized spiel. I found my thoughts drifting off. They then called us out, one after another, in no particular order. I found myself wondering if we were going in order of importance. I then looked at my provided pamphlet and realized that there were three different interviewing panels, with three different interviewers in each. I hoped and hoped for the smiley guy (DO) in a white coat, but...much to my dismay, I got the unfriendly bunch. I was led to a room with no windows. The three interviewers (all men) sat on one side of the table, and I on the other. Be prepared to have them ask you the standard set of questions. They don't respond readily since they are busy writing comments on your responses. Luckily, there was one interviewer that had a sense of humor and tried to ease the tension. Afterward the interviews, they provided lunch. During lunch we were able to speak with two students. They bashed the dress code. Very nice and funny. Overall, a very stressful experience. Don't believe all the comments that are posted. Be prepared for an unwelcoming bunch. Don't get me wrong, they are not mean, they just seem indifferent. " Report Response
